Reloading bench pics

Removed the Aluminum Lee Breechlock and replaced with the cast:
My bench is still almost the same
Those cast iron breechlock presses are beasts.

I never liked having my scale on my reloading bench proper.. I mean it's a precision instrument and you're slamming on the table all the time.
That's a good point, though I don't worry about it in my setup. My table is an old labratory sensitive instrument bench that I trash picked. It weighs ~800 lbs, and has vibration dampers between the table and steel frame. I pull the press arm, and the scale, less than 18" away, does not change one iota.
Question for you, with the dispenser, how often are you still using the scale to cartridge process? I have been expecting to avoid weighing every charge with the dispenser (1 in every 10 so at worse case I'd have 9 to "fix" if it got off).
Thanks for the pics and thoughts
@Mikej 's advice is spot on. Consistency in your method is crucial. If you're loading bottle neck rifle cartridges, especially for accuracy, you are weighing every one.
