I decided to start reloading and I dove off the deep end. This is a big commitment. I sure hope I enjoy this new hobby. It’s not so much a financial commitment, although that’s part of it. I bought a new RCBS Turret Press and the dies and equipment to reload 45 Colt and 38 special. If I don’t like this hobby I could sell the reloading press. The commitment is more about my new reloading room. I had a spare bedroom. I removed the bed and took it to the dump. I tore out the carpet and installed hard flooring. Then I built a reloading bench in this room. That was the commitment. There’s no turning back. I brought each board into the room to build this bench. It can not be removed. If I must remove the bench it must be cut into pieces, not simply dissembled.
I stained the bench and applied four coats of polyurethane.
I welded up mounts for a light over my bench.
Now whenever anyone comes to visit me they’ll be sleeping on the floor. I do have an air mattress.
