I was wondering if y'all could recommend a bench to purchase for a progressive reloader? I live in an apartment, so I neither have the tools nor the room to make one from scratch, so I have to buy it.
I use Workmates to teach on, but they are a bit flimsy for progressives, especially those with case feeders. They work fine for a turret or ss though.Long ago I used to use a portable drafting table that folded up for storage. I would think they could still be found at a Hobby/Arts & Crafts store. Mine was about the size Fred describes. Using a WorkMate and reinforcing it a bit also sounds good.
I highly recommend Lee's reloading stand. It's very sturdy, and perfect for cats with limited space. It also enables you to use regular furniture to place your other items on while rolling, which for me is one of those $40 fold-up tables from WallyWorld, which is also pretty sturdy. And it's white plastic, so clean-up is a breeze...not to mention being able to easily see any wayward grains of powder. Here's my bench set-up:

You noticed that! True Blue is one of my favorites. I did pay an obscene amount for it ($40!) at a gun show upon the strong recommendation of one of my friends, but I'm glad I did....an absolutely fantastic powder in every way.Looks good! Especially with that canister of True Blue on the lower shelf!
