Got the press mounted yesterday. As soon as I got it mounted I thought about how to get all those dies out of their boxes and out of the drawer they're in. Shelf for the boxes? Nah. Shelf for the dies? Yup. What to make it out of????? Wood? Steel? Aluminum! That's what I'll do! That'll look cool.





I used a 1" hole saw on the drill press, on 1 3/8" centers to make the holes for the dies to easily slip in and out of. I'm already enjoying the new set-up and havn't even used it yet.

They aren't cheap, but they'll never be more affordable than right now.

Two questions:

1) What is the "tool" at the right end of the die rack?
b) Is that the beginnings of bird nest on top, back of the wire shelving (left of bench)??

Nice rifle and reloading equipment.

Cheers - Mickey

Looks like a grip-n-pull for pulling bullets. The way to go if you ask me

Yes it is, havn't used it yet. Got that advice from this forum, thank you Riverrider.

That's not a nest, that's dry kindling.

The grip-n-pull looks very functional.

Pro-tip: don't burn the kindling close to the powder.

Great minds think alike!

My reloading bench is almost identically set up. The dies are stored in a similar fashion but I bored the holes in wood. My Co-Ax press is properly positioned on the right side, however. The wooden shelving is heavily braced on the backside and anchored to the wall...otherwise the weight of the dies and bullets would bring the whole mess crashing down.

Have they made it to where you can use the micrometer stems in the co-ax?

I think they've changed the yoke dimensions on the latest revision of the press so that you can. Not sure when the change came along though. I bought my Co-Ax eight or nine years ago and some die bodies had to be changed out. I think the newest press is the A3 version, but I wouldn't swear to it.
