Nice clean setup Shooter.
Someday (maybe soon) I will shovel the top of my Bench off and take a photo

Thanks from Squid and TheShooter

I have the Forster Coax press myself and I really appreciate its features. Swapping a die takes only seconds, the slide-clamp shell holder automatically adjusts side to side and the die itself automatically adjusts front to rear to keep the cases perfectly centered in the die while sizing and, most importantly, while seating bullets. I even like the built-in priming tool; it's not the most convenient to use, but it is so consistent when priming with uniformed primer pockets that I can't imagine using anything else.

I've never tried the short-throw arm though; sizing MG brass with a SB die requires quite a bit of force and I'm afraid I'd lose the smooth movement with the short arm. I bet it works well, though, with softer commercial cases such as Winchester 308 Win brass.

Your bench looks clean, organized and equipped well enough for almost anything. I especially like the setup for the electric drill. The battery operated drills will stand conveniently on their own, but their batteries need expensive battery replacement every couple of years. I've found I can usually buy a new drill with two new batteries for less than the cost of replacement batteries alone. But then I end up with these older, like new drills with no batteries to run them.

Thanks from TheShooter

Thanks, I got the long handle for the Co Ax also. I like to use the short handle for priming. I am using the short handle right now for sizing 223 (pesky little things) Even with the short handle it doesn't take much effort to re size the cases (with 308 I use the long handle). Then I trim them, swage them on my rock chucker with the swager die, uniform the primer pocket with the sinclair tool, tumble again, prime, throw powder I use the lee powder thrower its cheap but it works perfect. I don't know why people hate it so much but I really do like it. Then I seat the bullet and put them in a ammo can.

Put them in your picture folder. Then click on the paper clip attachment and you attach them through the folder you put them in. Its easy.

Are those presses set up so they can slide side to side! That looks like a very cool setup.

Yeah. I installed some slotted aluminum into the bench so I could move the presses out of the way without unbolting them. There is also a gap on either side so they can be slid out completely if need be
