Timely posting.
I just bought a miter saw stand similar to this one:

The saw mounts to a piece of 3/4" plywood, which in turn clamps to the stand. Mounting different tools on different pieces of plywood allows the stand to be used for a lot of different uses.

I havent gotten around to mounting my reloading press yet.

Get a big bench!
More lights.
More space.
More electrical plugs.
More shelves.
Good bracing.
Concrete floor over tile.

The short off the top of my head list of changes I would make.

Hey Peter

Pretty impressive production from a single stage. Where can I find info on that powder measure setup you have?

I got an old surplus steel desk and bolted a surplus industrial solid core door to the top. It's a beast and was free except for some common hardware. Five drawers for storage, to boot.

Peter:

How does washing the brass work for you and does that fabric softener improve accuracy?

For pistol I use a Pro2000 progressive and I am approaching 250,000 rounds loaded on it.

For Rifle I do it on a Rock Chucker one round at a time.

My dispensor for pistol is a uniflow with a baffle and micrometer screws. For rifle it is an RCBS Pro dispensor unit (the electronic one) but I don't remember the exact name. Slow but accurate.

Now the washer does not help much, but it is a great place to set up for rifle cleaning!

I did something similar to what Gary H did. Bought some of that heavy duty industrial shelving from Lowe's and some MSD Board and made an 4 foot by 4 foot island bench. Made a small wood shelf that I mounted in the middle and hung (2) 4' shop lights above. Cheap, easy, functions great, looks good. I have mounted my Wilson case trimmer, Lyman powder measure, single stage press, and turret press to it. I have left room also for a Dillon 650XL, that'll be on there someday.
