PostPosted: Tue Jul 22, 2014 5:18 pm    Post subject: Reloading room Reply with quote

I've been reloading since I was in high school. I've always have had a separate shed to do my reloading in. However, since I've been married, my wife thinks my reloading shed is also her junk room. I've had to put up with christmas stuff and all assorted things in there. Well, since my daughter has been gone from the house over a year now, her room is now gonna be my man cave. I'm redoing the paint and gonna build tables and such for my reloading. I'm looking at what everybody else has as far as how they have everything arraigned. Can I get some pics from yall on how you have yours set up? I have a few ideas, but want to look at all possibilities and not have a "ah ha" moment after. Thanks, Rudy.

I got evicted from my reloading room when my two daughters decided that they don't want to be roomies anymore.

Now I do almost everything in the shed.. along with the mozzie, spiders and lizards.

Sorry cant help much there..

Here is an example of a reloading station that is "portable" in that it is only 30" wide, 30" tall and 37" long. It has a built-in seat is strong enough to swage lead bullets on and has enough room for a single station press, a trimmer, a scale and powder measure in place at the same time.

One picture shows an optional cabinet built on to the station.

Good luck. You will probably find, as I did, that anything Mama doesn't know what to do with will be found on your loading bench...even if it doesn't belong in the room!

Most everyone on here have seen all or part of my "man cave" (more like a "man closet"). It's an 8' 6" X 9' room with what was going to be a linen closet. I've cramed my reloading bench, a gun safe and all my quadraphonic gear into this small space. Wife [under threat of devorce] is not allowed to store anything in it or on it. She has a whole house to store her junk in.

Very Happy tikkat3;Now that is what a reloading room is supposed to look like!What bushy's looks like is what happens when someone spends far too much time at sea!All his would need is a coat of haze gray paint and a boatswains whistle!

You also don't search for lost things? I give up searching because I know one of these days I'll always remember where I put them...

it's been said that when you have everything so well organized as you do, it's a sign of intelligence...

no, I don't want to say that Bushy...

ROFL Tikkat3...I divorced a woman that kept a house like that.

Have to admit that those photos were taken after I had finished a reloading session and had put everything away to get ready for the next project.

Sorry if I don’t have pictures, but my reloading room is getting reworked right now. When we remodeled our home, I said I wanted one room as my man cave. I was granted that request, and have a 12X14 room in our basement.

My current reloading bench is a ‘desk’, built out of 3/4” plywood by 2 of my brother in laws about 30 years ago. It worked perfect for me then, but is too small now.

My current design consists of 4 standard oak, unfinished cabinet bases, (bought on sale at Home Depot). Two of them will be put back to back at either end of a 7’ top. The top will be ¾” red oak plywood, doubled with another ¾” sheet of good grade plywood or dense MDF. It will be a 4’X7’ island with a space in the middle between the cabinet bases.

The drawer bases will be storage for bullets, die boxes, powder and tools. I will have one side that will be set up for my metallic and shotshell reloading, and the other side will be for my wood burning and wood carving hobbies.

I wish I could take credit for this design, but actually my lovely wife thought of the idea.

Did someone mention organized. I try but it never stays that way. Mine is in a corner of my basement workshop. The cupboards are salvaged from a kitchen remodelling. The glass faced space full of containers etc. is my casting booth that is vented by the rangehood to the outside. I lifted the presses off the benchtop as they were too low for comfortable use while standing.

Now that's a cool innovation, the enclosed and vented casting booth. I don't do any casting but I like the idea and the compactness of it. Something that would be nice is a powder dispenser that doesn't have to be screwed down to the bench top. Mine is the same as yours and it's always in the way until you have to use it. When you have a small bench space (mine is no larger than yours) you need all the extra room you can get. I don't think you can build a bench large enough. My wood shop bench is the same way, it has stuff mounted on it and stuff gets put there just because it's handy and after a while you wonder where the bench space went.
