I'll keep this short and simple and I'll bet almost everyone will agree.

Nice plan.
It's not big enough and even if you build it bigger it is still too small

One thing I would watch out for is the doorway--I'm not sure which way it swings from your drawing, but nothing's worse than finding out the door won't open the whole way because it hits one of the benches.

Also, Ronno--you mentioned:

I don't want to hi-jack your thread, but I am curious about why you say this. It would be nice to hear from somebody that actually HAS and USES each press. So, if you have some time and don't mind, I'd like to hear your list of advantages/disadvantages for each press. Thanks.

You're asking for ideas....

If it were mine (sigh) I would use more of the space. Suggestion below.

This is an autocad drawing scaled to your dimensions converted to a jpg.
Space bench to bench is 4'....plenty for you and a friend to reload in. Offset your lower cabinets enough so you have some room for knees using a back rested upholstered stools on wheels.

And yes madmo44mag, I agree with you, ain't no reloading room too big! I could really enjoy this one though.....

BTW, the locations where I show "posters," are obviously good places for light as well...I'd suggest glass block windows....you get the light without anyone being able to see your business....they're more secure than a plain window as well....but then you lose your posters. The wall where the table is could also be glazed, posters, or more cabinets or shelves.


Merry Christmas!!

No way.....I'd break your expensive camera lens.

Just to reload would be all right.....I'll just hop on my bicycle and run right over. It's only 3000 miles.

Glad I could be of help. One more thing.....lose the Pergo or any other laminate floor like it. I speak from experience and I should have known better. Brand new pergo floor was replaced in 1 year when a hose bib broke and the water ran an inch-worth on my pergo floor. Instant ruination. Even a spilt coffee will permanently swell that spot on the floor.

A much better choice, if you want a hard wearing wood-floor-look on top of concrete, is thick vinyl "wood" planks. They look great and stay looking great. Spill some water or paint thinner....no problem. That what I replaced the Pergo with and I (and the wife) really like it better.


One more crappy feature of pergo is it is slick as hell. Your stools on wheels become a dangerous butt breaker, when they slide out from under you when you try to sit down....done that too. I hated my pergo in my hobby room.
