    Thanks guys, it is mounted to the bench, but I need to add some steel to it as the plywood is flexing some. It won't be bad with pistol cartridges but rifle could cause some problems. So off I go to get some steel.

    AND for GODS sake, get your finger off the trigger until you are ready to squeeze the trigger!

    I made my bench out of 2X4s and the top is a solid core door. I then covered the top with beige formica. Press is located just left of center as I'm right handed. I can't believe I said left of center w/o mentioning politics.

    Well the press is mounted and I am assembling it now.

    OK, the press and bench are mounted and done. Used it today to make some 45 ACP rounds. The area is not finished yet. Plans for a cabinet on the side for the tumbler and scale, and some cabinets on the back wall for more stuff. LOL

    It was pretty straight forward loading. Had some questions and asked my Uncle who has years of reloading experience to come over and help. Just a few little tweaks and we are working well. It is fun loading your own ammo!

    Comment?

    Be safe!
