Ran out of Space - Bracket Mount

I recently took the plunge and upgraded from the Lee Turret to the Hornady LNL Progressive. I still wanted to keep the Turret around for smaller volume loads I don't shoot very often, but just had zero room.

With the my Single Stage and Turret mounted on the bench, I'd have to encroach on my gun cleaning area to keep them all.

The Lee plate system was cheap enough $28 that if it didn't work out I wasn't out too much money.

Here is the Lee Turret mounted with it.





Turret tucked away



The LNL mount was a universal block of wood. The steel plates only match up with Lee products as far as I could tell.



As you can see its a pretty robust press. I had to mount it over the edge more than I was comfortable with. It had a lot of bounce but a bracing piece got rid of that easily.

I've been wanting a vise on my bench. The Single stage will be put on this same system and stored. Then I will mount a vise where it is now.

Also after lifting the case feeder off, it only takes loosening up some screws and popping the retainer bolt to move it.
