'Strongmount' for Loadmaster done, can finally feed the XD(m)

Picked up a Lee Loadmaster to start loading for my Xdm 40c, moving from a Lee Pro 1000 so I'm used to the lee quirks. That and I prefer to prime by hand so I'm hoping this press will fit me well.

Anyway I bedroom reload and happen to have a computer desk I started using for reloading/cleaning/tinkering but it was way too low and it's pretty much crap when it comes to bolting a press too so I threw this together in Autocad and had it cut/bent/punched/powdercoated locally. I'm rather happy with it!

Nothing like some 1/4" steel plate to sturdy things up!

Overall:



Loading area:





Akrobin attaches to mount:







Random angles:









Yes, there's clearance for the ram/handle:

Nice pics, but seeing that Toadmaster gives me the willies! Glad I lived through reloading with mine.

Nice mount! I've been thinking of making an improved mounting point for my Hornady classic press.

That's a nice looking set up you have there and you did a great job on the visual aids!

Very nice! Solidity of the mount helps for sure, if not it's like limp writing an auto.

I know this is an old post but is there any way I can get those measurements? Just got a loadmaster and I'm in a similar situation.
