Don't know what happened but here's mine. Looks like a mess but I know where every thing is and has served me well since the early 80's.

This is mine. Shelves below the bench have other components along with more on opposing wall.

I have change my mind about sharing photos of anything than can be recorded by any federal agency.
One never knows when the $hit hits the fan and the come looking.

Hey BC.
I'm sure you're not referring to me.

IMHO clutter on a reloading bench is asking for trouble. If I'm reloading then I have the powder and bullets I need on the bench along with dies and cases. Everything else is where it belongs. Once I finish I clean up and empty the leftover powder back into the original container and put stuff away. I have seen the results of a guy leaving powder in the thrower and a few days later thought it was a slow burner instead of the fast burner it was. He blew the top of the Super Black Hawk cylinder completely off and to its credit the top strap bulged but held. To me neatness and safety go hand in hand.

What Terry said +1

I don't reload in large volumes..only what I will be shooting. No radio or talking on the phone. I use a Lyman Turret Press..have since I started back in the early 80's. I weigh each charge and use a light to check the charge when I am done. The only thing on the bench when I am reloading is what I will be using. A friend of mine destroyed a nice old Inland Carbine about 15 years ago because of an over charged round..he had a habit of drinking a few beers when he did his reloading and that's why we had a rule that everyone shot their own reloads. My bench is used as a regular workbench besides reloading. I've never had a mishap in 34 years.
Safety is Key. A good reminder.

I was just kidding, guys. I know in this case neat is safe.

I was just thinking of the old saying about a neat desk being a sign of a sick mind........supposedly said by Einstein. Probably a cheap excuse to his wife because he didn't want to tidy it up.....

Mac, I have been in hospitals that did not look as sanitary as your work area. Very nice.

Sadly, I do very little reloading anymore. I also have a wife who is a cleaning fanatic.
