Have been reloading for some time now on a pair of sawhorses and some plywood lol... The wife is letting me move inside now so it's time to upgrade the bench... Any input and pictures of your set ups would be absolutely wonderful and greatly appreciated... I have been thinking of running the 2x4 basics kit anyone have any experience with it???

Loading Bench

Go to your local building materials store and look at shop benches or go on-line and do the same. Then buy your 2x4s and 3/4 plywood and hardware.
Use carriage bolts and don't forget to back-brace it. Mine is 4ft. long and 2 ft. deep. Mine is laid out (case trimmer on far left; then my RCBS press and then my powder measure. The case tumbler and scale on the far right. I use a short stool to sit on which makes the table top of the bench about half way up my torso. Finally, I keep it covered with an old bed sheet.

You can get one of these (stand) for around $100. Very sturdy and small footprint. They are made for a Lee so I had to drill some new holes and added the small piece of 1X6 for a small place I set my scale when setting up a new run.

i use a roll around tool cart from harbor freight, i took a couple small door hinges and piece of plywood and made a lid on top and mounted my press to the plywood lid and it also has a skid out drawer so i have 2 drawers plus the storage tray on the bottom, works well if you are dealing with limited space, its about 30 inches wide maybe a littil smaller and about 15 inches deep and about 30 inches tall, those are not exact measurement but close

i used a couple small door hinges,
just got to www.harborfreight.com
and put in the item number
90428
and it will pull up the cart,
or just type in tool cart in the search bar on their
website and it will bring up all their tool carts
