    Hi all first post. I am stationed overseas and need to order my father a christmas present. But i cant wait to get home and get into reloading. My dad has all the gear except for a good reloading bench. Who has the best premade bench, and who has made the best bench themselves. Pictures are welcome.

    Welcome to TFF , here's a link to some pics of some great reloading benches.

    Freebore, Robertchambers and Ten Wolves have some nice setups. If you really want to drool, and I mean DROOL, take a look at Rembrandt's bench and shop. I think we'd all give a left pecan for something like that, by far the nicest bench setup I've ever seen.

    I bought a metal frame work bench with 72 x 30 inch hard maple top from W W Grainger and I really like it. Nice and rock steady and looks good too. I run a RCBS Rockchucker press and two Dillon 550's on my bench. Sorry I don't have any pics but here's a link to the components:

    There are all sorts of benches that can be made or rigged up but I looked at a lot of premaid and decided this was the one for me.

    I went to Goodwill and bought an old yet sturdy endtable for $20. It has my progressive reloader on one side and the single stage and powder throw on the other and still plenty of room to reload. Love it and I can take it out to reload in front of the TV

    I needed portability in my bench, since it is stored in the laundry room, but used in the kitchen/breakfast area, so I used a steel router table leg set from Rockler, added plywood top and two shelves, and their HD locking caster set. It is small, but I have access to all four sides, which helps a lot (especially access to shelves below). The casters lock both the swivel and the wheel, so they don't move at all when locked. Rockler has different length stretchers to make any size up to 4x4 (larger with multiple leg sets). I mounted my Co-Ax on one end, and a bench vise on an opposite corner. I plan on adding folding leaves to extend the work surface too, but have not gotten around to that yet. I have most of my dies and reloading tools/gadgets stored on it, plus a fair amount of bullets and brass stored on the bottom shelf, so it is really heavy, and does not tip at all.
