I Have a 36 inch piece of 2x6 with press mounted on one end. I put it on the kitchen table with a terry towel in between with a C- Clamp. I use this set up to load when it is too cold in my shed. My scales have to be at room temp to be accurate and if I am not comfortable I will not be accurate. When I am done I just pick everything up , put back in the box and put it away. My scales never get cold. They stay in the house. Powder Is stored in a locked insulated pine box.
