A lot of sitting. Especially when trimming.
If your eyes and hands work the same either standing or sitting, consider how many hours you'll spend working at the bench, and read any number of articles like this...
Sitting too long can kill you, even if you exercise, study says - CNN
I switched to a standing desk for my last 5 years at work, and it took a week and a half for my feet to adjust. Now my computer at home is up at standing elbow height too. If it doesn't aggravate any medical condition(s), they say standing is just better for you.
Just load how you pee, problem solved
if CNN reported gravity was suddenly discovered on the Earth I'd want a real source confirming details.
I always stand when reloading - that way I can see Mrs tac in the house when she waves a mug of Joe at me...
If I was sitting I'd miss out.
If public bathrooms are any indication, then most men are sitting................., because if they didn't, there wouldn't be any powder in the case................
You guys are pikers.
I crouch. Sometimes I do the Cossack dance, with the kicks and everything, but only when I prime.
Seems to be a recurring theme; most of us here seem to have back problems.
I'd say that is good reason to maintain a gun culture since loading, fiddling, smithing and shooting are all things those with bad backs can do to stay active.
As someone who has done a lot of sitting and coming from a background in Architectural design here is my thoughts: If you spend hours on end doing something in a stationary position your bench, workspace, drafting-table or whatever it is should be at your comfortable standing height, then get an adjustable stool or drafting chair and adjust it to your proper height while sitting then alternate between sitting and standing.
just don't try to combine the two or you could end up with a negligent dis...never mind.
That would be ideal, a bench you could stand at, and sit using a taller bar stool type seat.
Built my bench to match my height.
Built my bench to my sitting height.
34 1/2" works for my scrawny arse.
Standing in one place too long kills my lower back.
I've never tied flies but I wonder if anyone stands while making those persnickety things..
Probably no chairs in a commercial production facility...
Sitting on a stool when running the presses. Single stage, I double check powder charges before I sit. Dillon, I can see in the case from the stool just fine. That is why I don't have one of those fancy risers. I do have the Inline Fab Ergo roller handles on all of my presses though. One of the best investments I have made for reloading.
I do stand for powder charging/case prep generally though.
I use a dentist type mirrior to verify powder charges.
Standing.... built my bench to my height/arm length. I sit enough at work.
