    Had to stay busy while I wait for my 1050..:whistling: Cost me $33 and less than a hour of my time. The Dillon "blue" paint was $20, I wanted a epoxy based paint for durability since I will be taking off and on somewhat frequently. A lot better than $60 for a single toolhead holder. Once I get my shellplates and other items I will cut grooves for the SP and holes for pins etc. I think I will even make some holes for the primer pickup tubes. Its not fancy metal, but its also not a cardboard box like I have seen others use. I would rather spend my money on another CC.:tongueout:

    Looks good.

    I did something similar for the 650 but didn't paint it.

    Very nice looking!!

    I built one also, a 5 station unit, painted the same. I think I had posted pics of it back when I made it. I've since acquired more quick change units and am trying to decide on building a larger one or reverting back to the toolstands.

    I'll try to fill Jack's shoes here a bit:

    "Big deal! A guy glues some toilet paper spindles to a board and thinks he should get an award. That's what's wrong with you kids these days. Too many soccer trophies even though your team came in last place and you sat on the bench."

    I've enough quick change assemblies now to fill about 9 posts, many more than the 5 post stand that I built. I'm not sure whether to ditch the 5 stand and build another that will hold 10+ toolheads, or just use the Dillon toolstands for the entire lot. While my bench is nothing worthy of a front page gun rag photo, I personally don't want a mixed setup on the bench.

    I may be a CRB, but I do have some amount of pride. Maybe that's the true reason I like purdy brass?

    Wisky, step back a bit. Justin (and I, for that matter) made something nifty from scratch, and actually worthy of being painted in blue Koolaid. And, as CRB's, aved a few pennies over buying the Dillon cast toolhead stands.

    Nothing different than when posters take pride in their reloading caves and post pics of their benches, reloaded ammo, whatever.

    Haters gonna hate..:supergrin: You have it all wrong (Jack would not be proud) See the kids who got soccer trophy's for nothing would have never built one when they could of just bought it with mommy's money, plus the kids your talking about don't know how to use they're hands... They are actually dowels, and do you not see that nifty router work.:crying:

    I think you should have written Hornady Sucks on the front.

    That is implied. No need to waste time writing it.
