Where can I find metal plates, about 8-10 inches square to reinforce the mounting area for a press? I've seen these many times in reloading bench photos, some here, but I don't know where to find them.

Thanks.

Man I love these threads. I always get more ideas to improve my room and setup. Here is mine that has come together over 22 years or so. Like some others, I started with a Lee loader the little hand tool. After a year or so I bought the RCBS Rock Chucker. Then eventually stepped up to the Dillon 550B. I always used an RCBS beam scale until a few years ago I finally bought the Pact digital. The other press is a Spolar Gold shot shell press.

I use the Dillon to load handgun, load rifle on the single stage Rock Chucker. The little bench the tumblers are sitting on was one I made and used in the small laundry room when we lived in a 900sq ft condo 15 years ago. Had the rock chucker mounted to it and it worked pretty well. Made the the bench with the two presses when we moved into the house and then when I started loading for trap(shotshell) I built the other bench that press is on. I just keep adding stuff and reorganizing. The room is one that is storage really, the rest of the basement is finished. Anyway, here's some pics.

Nice setup, Gaspipes!

Of course after 22 years, it should be.

Your local welding shop should be able to help you out. If you bring a layout of your press's mounting holes, they could plasma cut or punch the holes for you.

I'm jealous of all the Blue paint on the bench. Makes my poor old 450 look primative. Nice layout!

Sorry, hadn't checked this thread in a few days. The loader all the way to the right is a Spolar Gold shotshell loader. It's the best shotshell loader a person can buy. I was shooting about 20,000 registered ATA targets a year until about 18 months ago. Lead got to $45/25lb bag and I have just about quit. When I started shooting trap, it was $12/25lb bag. Anyway....

Well it certainly looks expensive! I have a Ponsness Warren 375 single stage shotshell reloader that I have just aquired. After hunting season, I am going to get into loading shotshells.
You have a really nice set up.

[QUOTE=longtooth;1933231]Mine is a 6x10 cave in the garage.
On one side is the cleaning bench & ammo storage. Pistol ammo in peanut butter jars. A very renewable resourse around here. I just never grew up.


That is the coolest container for storing ammo.......
I bet you can fit a lot of ammo in a empty jar! Thanks for the idea........lol

It's always open when I'm in the house, there are always responsible people around. I only lock up when all my family leaves
