Reloading Bench

Filed in Articles, Getting Started Reloading by on June 25, 2011 • views: 1481

I feel like I scored today.

Before I buy a progressing reloading press, I feel like I need something sturdy to mount it on. My RCBS Rock Chucker is mounted on a Harbor Freight flimsy clone of the Black and Decker Workmate. It works but it is far from ideal.

About the only place I have for  a workbench is the garage, but I’m one of those peculiar people who insists upon being able to park both cars in the garage. Yes, It’s a 2-car garage. Which means that whatever bench I use, it must be no more than about 20 inches deep.  Most quality benches start at about 24 inches deep.

Fate smiled upon me.  I found a Craftsman-branded version of this Waterloo workbench (Waterloo’s model number is WB5002) in black instead of red on Craigslist for $100.

With a little searching, you can find the Waterloo WB5002 on the internet for about $150.  It is very sturdy and the drawers slide very smoothly.

Waterloo Industries offers several models of this workbench with varying numbers of drawers and in depths up to 24 inches.
