It's tall enough to keep cases from falling over or tilting.
Runs about 16 bucks

Good point, in the past (30 years ago) I did just that and they worked great. That being said I no longer have the time to spend on those projects, I need to spend my time napping and reloading. That is why I bought mine. Great workmanship, great price!Why not make your own!
Nice lookin blocks N bullets, BUT LORD how do you find anything on that Messy Loadin Bench!:questionmark: :flute: :marchmellow:Yepper, I can attest to that and they are great. Here are a few photos of some of mine in use that I received from him - great workmanship.
Ray, I have two eight foot benches in an L shape so I have plenty of room. :biggrin: My stock of primers, powder, bullets & brass are on a three piece, six foot high Wall unit just to the right of the bench. It stays fairly neat since I focus on one cartridge at a time in the cheapest Lee press ($27.00) made. I enjoy the process that way. In a prior life I used a progressive press but this time around I decided to "enjoy" each step of a load. Heck actually when I started up this time I started with a Lee hand press for the 444 & 45-70's. I was loading in my recliner while the wife was watching TV. That and some black coffee was almost heaven. Then our daughter got married, moved out and the Man Cave was born. I almost didn't know how to react having such a large room on the second floor with a huge window looking out over the ranch property. Ah, I could go on and on about that room. Heck I was going to build a reloading bench out of pine and oak and the wife wouldn't have it. She looked online for a few days until she found the ones I have and she said, Here go look at these, see if you like em and if you do buy a couple.Nice lookin blocks N bullets, BUT LORD how do you find anything on that Messy Loadin Bench!:questionmark: :flute: :marchmellow:
Geez I Don't even remember what the Top of my bench looks like :ahhhhh: :flute::biggrin:
