    Just about none of that looks like it actually improves anything. Everything is changed, but that doesn't mean it's better. I'm surprised the guy didn't knit a cozey to go on the powder measure.

    You know, that's a good point. He could imbed tiny RFI tags in all of his brass, encoded with a lot number. Then he could use a reader to ID his brass and tell him how many times it's been fired.

    This guy has way too much time on his hands. The bench is so neat it really doesn't even look like he uses it. All my stuff is somewhere on the bench. If I need something I scrounge around for it. Thats what a real mans reloading bench should look like. All cluttered and busy like you are doing a lot of reloading :supergrin:

    I do like his primer tube pickup rack. I may have to knock one of those out in my shop today.

    I am playing with that one today myself. It would have been nice if he included some measurements.

    Working on some as well. I'm thinking of going with some clips to retain the tubes in the event the rack gets bumped. Actually thinking of mounting the clips to a rack that I can mount on the wall to keep them off the bench but easily accessible.

    Here is what I decided.

    6 primer tube stand.
    Primer tube cut outs 1/2 inch. (tried 3/8 and 5/8 also)
    1 inch in between primer tubes
    Riser 9 inches cut at 85 and 105 degrees for looks.
    12 inch base.

    I will take a post after I paint it.
    It will be an improvement over the coffee cup I use now.

    Mount it on the inside of a cabinet door? The location would minimize dust buildup.
