    Agedhunter, great start. Anxious to see the finished product. The bench looks sturdy.

    Fast Forward, look forward to seeing the pics when you get them up.

    What brand mini lathe is that Jack?

    I assume the mini mill is the same brand as well?

    I finally got around to getting a pic of my bench. It's not much but it gets the job done just fine.

    Here's a couple of photos of my little set up. I'm just getting started, so I suspect there will be expansion and reworking yet to be done. I bought most of the equipment off of a buddy of mine who decided he didn't like reloading, so just about 90% of what you see in this photo only cost me $100.00. If you subtract the $65.00 of recyclable brass he gave me along with the equipment, I think I did pretty well over all. :eek: He even threw in the bench... it's not great, but it will certainly do for now. Nice to have great friends sometimes. :D

    I just started reloading about 5 months ago. This is the first bench I've built, I think I'm off to a good start so far.

    I love mine so far. I've had it for about 6 months now. Had a few hiccups in the beginning...esp with the priming system. I did break a small primer shuttle, and an indexing pawl the first 2 weeks i had it haha. But once all that was adjusted it has ran smooth ever since.

    made some shelves for one section under my benches, now I've got most of my brass organized where I can rifle through it easier and save some space.

    pink medical tubs were free, don't laugh.

    and made an organizer for my powder drop tubes that my dad made for me recently:
