I finally got my new reloading room finished today. I got all the lighting, and plugs wired in, shelving hung, and pictures hung. I moved my powder measure closer to the press (Grants Idea) but I like it. The carpet is soft with very good padding, but it sure gets dirty fast, so I will keep a vacuum handy. I even mounted a shelf for my raido. (country music of course)Tom

Wait until you suck a live primer up into your vacuum and it goes off. I never thought it would happen until the old Hoover caught on fire because the primer set the bags contents on fire. The spilled gunpowder wasn't of much help either. :good:

treasure every moment you have.

:good: Actually, my grandmother. You won't do it twice :lol: . No matter how careful you are though, when the primers hit and roll they wind up in the Bermuda Triangle, only to be found by the vacuum. Worse part is, the primer cup is brass, so a magnet won't help.The room looks good though, but I guarantee it is not finished. There is always something to be done to it :D .

It's nice to have your own space, isn't it?Mine's a mess but I set mine up as a mancave, TV, recliner and a bathroom right outside the door. If I get a mini fridge and a microwave I would never leave.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Wow. You guys have some nice dedicated spaces for reloading. Never thought of primers and vacuums, good advice.

looks good but you will need more shelves for brass containers once you start reloading for all your toys.You will be surprised how addicting it will get.
