I finally got the shop in a condition of completion that I could put up shelves and cabinets to complete the storage of my reloading gear. I'll have to take a picture of it to show it off when it is clean. I still have to build my new powder magazine and the heavy duty shelves for ammo storage but at least most of the gear is unpacked and the stations are set up.

I'll be moving the Muskrat (ratty old Mustang) in from storage so I will be working on it as well.

PaulS, glad you have your projects lined up and ready to go. I need to get my workspace under control. I'm months from being about to show any pictures.

The only times I get to do more than a modicum of reloading is when I stay at my mate's place in NM. Sad
Was out there for three weeks last month & turned out a little over 3,000 rounds of handgun fodder - mostly .45 ACP but with 700 rounds of .38spl to feed my wheel gun addiction & all with an RCBS Junior.
Due to a very itchy trigger finger after 6 months of no handguns, I unfortunately ran through about half of what I loaded prior to heading back to Blighty. Very Happy

I'll admit I'm totally enamoured to the stainless steel tumbling method due to how clean it gets the cases....

Here are some pics of the reloading stations:

I have to resize the pictures down to 768? I will try to post them after I work the size down... Sad

Download this free add-on for Windows mate...works a treat for me.

Image Resizer

Also, have a look at the following thread on The Nut mate...should be something there that is useful to you. Scroll down about 2/3 of the page to my post for info.

Well, your software doesn't work on Linux.
I do have software to resize the photos but I have to remember that I need to do that before I get on the Nut. I've been at the range all day with a character who is visiting for a few weeks from Arizona. A really nice guy. He filled out a membership application and gave me $100 cash for the $65 membership fee and a donation of $35 for the womens programs. Hes a few years older than I am but has only been shooting for the past 18 years - he was 55 when he decided to get a gun. He just went through some pistol training - the week long course at Front Sight - and was a hoot to share the day with. Tomorrow I am shooting a silhouette match and Sunday I am RSO for Women On Target. Tonight we celebrate my wife's birthday.
I'll get the photos up, I promise.

Here are the reduced pictures of my reloading stations:
The top picture is my rifle reloading station - all supplies are in the cabinet above it.
The middle picture is both stations side by side showing the storage cabinets above.
The bottom picture is my pistol station.

Well, those were supposed to print at 5" tall and 3.75" wide.
The forum software must use the number of pixels to figure size.
I'll have to remember that in the future.
