I use old canvas coin bags as dust covers for my press and powder measure. They also make pretty good sandbags for the shootin' bench. Since banks don't use 'em much anymore, they'll usually give 'em to ya if ya ask.

Hey me too!! went to my bank a few years ago to change coins for my shop,
they gave me a few of them canvas bags and tell me to keep them.
Now they ended up used as covers for my presses and lyman sizer.
Neat stuff and fit very nicely too.

Very nice and neat bench Mr Bush..
Some people say that clean desk is sign of empty ... ahum.. err

That is a 1 1/2" X 11" piece of aluminum angle. Drilled to except my resizing/decapping dies. I resize, decap and prime all cases on the single stage press.

I reload all rifle cases on the single stage press too. Revolver and pistol cases are reloaded on the turret.

All cases are tumbled, resized/decapped, measured, trimed (if needed) and tumbled [again] before they are reloaded.

The piece of aluminum angle keeps the resizing dies handy...

That's a hell of a good idea. I have always hated digging through the pile of die boxes to get to the one I need which always happens to be the bottom one. I hope you didn't patent that cuz I am going to make me one. Thanks.

Not a problem...I also drilled a small hole to hold my primer pocket cleaner. That's the throttle/choke pull handle you see hanging at the right side between the press and the last die.

So organized I'm jealous. I have rapidly out grown my bench, time to contemplate a new one.

Absolutely. This is my "man Cave" you know.

Oposit the loading bench...Pioneer CT-40 Cassett deck, United Audio Dual 1229 turntable, Pioneer RT-707 real to reel, Sony SQR-6750 SQ Quadraphonic receiver and four Polk Audio R-15 speakers. Small room, small speakers...Not to mention a closet full of tapes. All 1800 foot with 5 to 7 albums each...Did I miss anything?

I'm very sorry guys. With all my other ailments [horses, hunting, fishing, reloading, shooting, camping and hiking] I forgot to tell you that I have a mental disease...I'm an admited Quadraphile.

I once had a rather large system, but I was forced to reduce it in size. I still have the Teac 4010 SU and the Sony SQD-2020 stored.
