Had some spare time do I did some work on my reloading bench. I have the bench top a light sanding with my orbital & 150 grit paper then gave it a couple coats of polyurethane.

Here is another little project I did. My powder scale has been here in the shelf since I started reloading. It's stable and I' not going to bump it there, but the vertical shelf support is kind of in the way, and having it a hair closer would be better

I had these 2 pieces of aluminum channel laying around. So I attached them to the underside of the shelf. I had a small piece of 1x8 pine here and I sanded it a bit so after putting polyurethane it would still fit in the channel

I move the scale the the slide out shelf when needed, and store on the shelf when done with the little shelf slid in out of the way. Works Great!

Looks great. I like having my scale at eye level.
It was slightly above eye level before. Being an inch lower and 5 or 6 inches closer and the unrestricted access to the pan makes it easier to use and read. I have actually had the idea in the back of my mind for a while now and finally got to it. I also got some new bins for brass storage and am working on doing some other rearrangements and small improvements

Very nice ! I wish mine was that organized, I keep trying to make it neater but it just gets messy all on it's own. :unsure:

Any flat surface magnetically attracts stuff; even brass cases, lead bullets, and non-metallic powder.
