    Still can't load them. See why it'd be a bad idea to try to learn a new press!

    I got rid of a Dillon SDB because all of my reloading was on a single stage up until then.

    I see that baboon. Having to buy proprietary dies would be horrible.

    Rocky, Inline Fabrication makes great stuff but I’ve got the hookup for cheap press lights.

    Love mine. Very nice to have a clear space like you said. Originally I was going to mount 3 presses on that bench, but the plate system frees up all that room.

    If you have access to a router it's not hard to do the inlet. Mine took about 30 minutes, including taping off and being super careful with the router.

    They make a riser, female, plate for mounting to the top of a table.

    Pretty dang secure. The tongue at the back of the plate, that inserts into the rectangle on the receiver, has a hex set screw to tighten the back down, and the front left and right sides have 1/4 or 3/8" bolts that you lock down with nuts once the press is mounted in the plate.

    It's at least secure enough that I can use a push-through sizing die without lube and it doesn't move, or I can run 308 on my super 1050 manually with no problems.

    In the pic below, you can see the rectange. The 4 silver bolt heads are the tops of the bolts through-bolted through the entire work bench, securing the plate. On the left and right front corners you can see the holes to lock down the press.

    When I get home later, I'll take a pic of the plate the presses are bolted to.
