    This picture was taken 2 or 3 years ago and I am proud to say it looks much the same today. I am in the process of installing another bench along the other wall that won't be quite as deep so hopefully it will not collect stuff.

    You guys with neat and tidy benches aint right.

    Very nice, you could also do the same with a trailer hitch setup.

    Beautiful setups. I have not set one up yet but you have inspired me!

    I bought a Lyman single stage press years ago but never used it. What manufacture of dies do you recommend for .223 and 30-06? I prefer made in US and will pay more for it.

    Let me know if it is inappropriate to ask this in this thread.

    Thanks,

    Not inappropriate at all; this is a good place to ask.

    Virtually all reloading dies for sale in the US are made here. Any of the major brands will do just fine. That said, Lee dies are one of the best values in the reloading field. About half of my dies are Lee with the rest being RCBS and Redding. I load on three presses - an old Lyman Turret, an RCBS RockChucker and a Dillon 550.

    My little corner. The press is mounted to a very old VCR stand ( remember when a VCR weighed more than the TV? ) It has wheels, and is very solid. The bench right beside it came from Lowes

    ( And, of course, when the loading is going on, that bottle of Sam Adams and the ashtray on the bench won't happen! )

    How do you like that Kobalt workbench for loading?

    How has the Kobalt workbench held up for you? Is the bench tall enough to stand while reloading? Did you use the top that it came with or did you replace it with a heavier and sturdier material? I'm looking for a solid core wood entry door to use as the top; I think that would be much more stable.

    I'm looking at purchasing one to use as my reloading workbench. I just purchased a used RL 1050 Dillon press with .45 ACP dies and would like to install it on this workbench. I have contraints on the size of the bench I can install due to the space available.
