Thread: The final nail driven...

  1. #1

    The final nail driven...

    Into my new reloading room! As some of you might know, last year the county I live in was flooded and I ended up with 8" of water in my basement while running three pumps simultaneously. It has taken a year of dehumidifying and airing to get it to the point where I can even begin to rebuild and once the die was cast, I decided that I would dedicate one room to just reloading. Last month I started ripping out the old sheetrock and stud-work. Today I finished when I mounted an old crank pencil sharpener on the wall.

    I down sized my operation a bit. I have a right angle bench made from heavy white kitchen countertop covering about 14 feet in length. I mounted my RCBS A-1 (pre-rock-chucker monster) press and my Lyman Spar-T turret press, as well as my RCBS and Lyman cast bullet sizers. I have a Bonanza Coaxial press coming and that will be mounted as well. I have spaces for my Seeley Masker BR powder measure, four Belding and Mull powder measures, and a Lee measure. I have an Ohaus Dial-a Grain and an Ohaus 505 scales and Lee Dippers. I boxed a bunch of my dies and gave away a Lee Press and a Lyman #55 powder measure. I have plenty of shelving for the tid-bits.

    I was going to post a picture of it but my trusty Fuji Digital (a two time veteran of trips to the Highlands) unexpectedly lost it's ability to attain focus so at least for now I am at a loss to show off my handy work. I'm not much of a carpenter but I am pretty proud of the results. I'll post a pic when I can. Happily yours....~Muir

    Thanks. Just don't slap a level around anyplace!

    I wonder what the Fire Marshall would think? If you look under the bench you can see cans of smokeless powder. I have about 80 pounds of it... and when I took the picture I was sitting on an air tight metal container with about 50K primers in it~Muir
