Reloading bench help

Messages

Here's the situation:
I live in an apartment and have very limited space to set up a reloading bench for my Pro-1000.
I tried attaching it to a folding workbench, but it has too much flex to operate a press on.
I also lack the tools and experience to build a suitable bench.

1. Would someone in the Eugene/Springfield area be willing to help me build a bench? (I'd compensate you of course)
or
2. Can you offer a suggestion for mounting my press to my folding bench that would be less bendy?

Thank you.

i dont know.... maybe if you bolted it to the floor, i would be afraid to put a grinder on that. catching a grinding wheel with your....zipper doesnt sound loke my idea of fun.

It has holes in the feet to bolt it down. It could bolt to a plywood base for portable reloading.

I just built one the size of a computer desk, for about 20 dollars.

Be more than happy to help you out. It's 26 inches deep, and 48 inches long. (A lot more room than it sounds like) Works great, was built to fit in our bedroom. Moved it to the garage though.

Piece of cake! Made 50 rounds on it last night, was absolutely wonderful.
