No more primers

    Here is a neat little idea I came up with to stop getting primers all over the floor when decapping. I used to drag the garbage can under the press and let the primers go into the can as they exited the tube, but always ended up with a bunch that would end up on the floor from the tube moving or me bumping it. So I came up with the idea to use a water bottle from an old bicycle. Now they fall into the water bottle and I just empty it when I am done. ;)

    It's the bench sold by Harbor Freight. Works pretty well for reloading.

    Lee must have wised up by the time I got my press. They sent a cap for the end of the tube so I just roll with it until the tube is full, then pop the cap to dump in to the garbage can under my bench. I never bothered with a better system like yours there because I've been planning on rebuilding my bench and 2 years later still haven't gotten around to it.

    Hey! Great minds, buddy! I bought that same bench, on sale, with free shipping! To my door, it was $135 IIRC.

    They are plenty solid.:)

    I decided to buy that eBay $10 special. Who knows. It may be a rip off and if it is it is supposed to be covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee. We'll find out.

    LOL Of course it is. My clue was:

    “Auction for the "SUPER COUPON" Only. You WILL NOT receive actual item.”

    I like the drawers.... My old reloading bench was made from 7- 7' crossarms from our pole yard... It weighed probably 150 lbs.... But it was sturdy!

    My Lee Breech-Lock also came with a rubber cap for the tube. I don't have a bench *(or the space for one)* right now, so I just clamp my press to my computer desk in my man-cave.
