    That old Lyman (Ohaus) scale is awesome, you will be hard pressed to find one better. I used one of those for years, wish I could remember where it went to so I could get it back. I still use a balance beam scale for all my loading. Have a digital and the only thing I've found it useful for is weighing bullets. You'll find with a digital if you breath on it it changes, if the heat comes on it changes, if the air comes on it changes, to me they are a pain in the butt. If you decide not to use that Lyman let me know what you would take for it and I'll give it a good home.

    Akro-Mils is the "definitive" supplier of the stackable bins with the lip on the back for hanging on wall fixtures. They are the source for the ones Dillon sells, but if you buy a dozen or so at a time they are way cheaper than Dillon or most retail outlets. Grainger and McMaster-Carr industrial supply houses are good sources.

    My Bench

    Here is my current one. For years I had a temporary one made of two 12x36 slabs of 3/4 plywood with 2x2s for feet. I clamped this to my desk when I was single, or the room divider in the kitchen after we bought a house.

    Then I built a garage and a workbench. I used the workbench in the garage for 12 years, but it got cold in winter.

    When the kids moved out, I built this.

    Nice benches and equipment guys!

    Just getting started in the reloading aspect but the benchtop is 14' so I'll have plenty of room for expansion as I collect more stuff. Yes that's a computer built into the wall... thinking about loading it with some RELOADING software to help me remember stuff

    Really need to build some shelves and replace the NYC
    mural with a tropical island scene... I hate winter

    Not Quite Finished, but Here's Mine

    I live in a smallish 2-bedroom apartment all by my lonesome. I've gotten sick of C-Clamping my presses to the table each time I went to use them so I took on the task of building myself a reloading bench. I wanted to consolidate all my stuff and make it easier to keep it all organized so I came up with this.
    It's not completely done yet. I'm going to put two shelves above the bench surface and a fluorescent light under one of them. It's bolted together for the most part. The surface of the bench and the shelf underneath are screwed down but the frame-work is bolted together. It's strong enough to hold an elephant damn-near!
    I'm just worried about how I'm going to get it out of the apartment when I finally move... I guess I'll undertake that task when that time comes!

    I'll be sure to post a couple pictures of the completed project when I get the shelves put on it! I am still digging all my reloading equipment out of storage so there's not a whole lot of stuff on my table yet. Don't worry y'all, it'll look as cluttered as everyone else's soon enough!!

    Here is my ammo manufacturing area. Nothing fancy, but gets the job done.

    Finally got around to taking pictures..and found my camera cord since I didn't build my computer with a card reader. Mine is made out of a 6 foot section of bowling alley lane. Has a Dillon 550b and 650. Single stage press and powder thrower, vice, bookshelf, drill press, grinder, fan lights, bottom shelf storage, lee 4500 sizer/lube and power strips. Black and grey box on the bottom is where i store my casted bullets which hopefully will be filling up soon. Swiss army of benches? I need to make cup holders. I store my brass, dies, and other reloading equipment in one of those cabinets you can buy @ home depot. Clean brass shelf, dirty brass, bullet and media shelf. I'm a bit anal but everything is organized so that i don't have to spend forever looking for it.
