    At about 8am I decided to clean out one of our rooms that have been used for storage for some time. Had lots of boxes and an old desk I was using as a reloading table. I was tired of having my press bounce around and things falling over while reloading. Here is the results of 8 hours of hard work, for a new bench and shelves. My Dillon 550B loves its new home and so do I. Still have alot of thing to get but like Jonny Cash, one part at a time.

    What do you think?

    U know I'm a newbie, when I have a Lee's press, two sawhorse, old pieces of plywood, in a corner of my dining room. I haven't loaded one round and want to upgrade all ready. I have a full basement maybe I do something like that..... with a better poster....some sexy lady. Great JOB.

    Very cool! I've wanted to do this forever!

    You should definitely post more pics as you get it set up.

    But definitely also take that wallpaper stripping off near the ceiling!

    Don't worry about it everybobdy has to start somwhere. The fact that you have started is the main thing. I started on the kitchen table in a 1 bedroom apartment with a Lyman 310 handheld tong tool better none as a nutcracker.

    That was 45yrs ago and I have been producing what I condsider decent ammo ever since.

    I did get rid of the nutcracker the next year for a single stage.

    Hang in there, you will do fine. :supergrin:

    Lol.

    I have a few things to change soon. Paint the bench, walls and add a exhaust for my casting(I use a fan in the window for my exhaust). I want to cut down some targets and place it over the trim. I will post a pick of what ever I come up with.

    It looks like a great start. The only thing I would suggest is to run two levels of shelving the length of the benches. Very nice job though.

    If you are old enough to play with guns then you should be too old to still be into ICP.

    Very nice reloading room! There are a lot of folks that would love to have such a setup, including me. I am out in the garage. But I've got my swamp cooler in the summer and an electric space heater in the winter. I'm good with that (sort of)! ha ha

    Exactly what I was thinking. That's entirely too organized and "squared away". Let's see it in about 6 months.................:rofl:

    Well, the girlie calendar and the border wallpaper have been mentioned, so all I have to say is that your loads will come out better if you have some antlers or other formerly living thing on your wall that you took with a hand load, and of course you'll need the spittoon or I won't visit. :miff:

    He could just put sawdust on the floor or serve peanuts in the shell.
