  • Wheelchair accessible reloading bench, table

    I'm looking for some ideas for a reloading bench that will work well for a chair bound reloader. The one I am using needs replaced as it seems like almost everything is either in the way or out of reach.:bawlbag:

    Are you looking for ideas of one to buy or to build? My benches are all Frankenbenches that I built with leftover lumber from a home construction. How much space do you need? Give us a few more details of what your needs are. There are some very resourceful folks who are members here.

        Also things to consider...chair height, your arm reach, how close to the bench can you get in the chair, and other dimensions. Depending on the height, you could have built a bench with cantilevered supports, so your legs and chair don't bump the bench. Wouldn't work very well on a deep bench, say 24 inches or more, bench, but if you are limited to 18 inches deep or so, a design like that should work.

          What I use now is a huge gov.surplus desk,3'x5' plenty of storage drawers on both sides. Chair fits it fine as long as all equipment is right in front of me. What would work great is a set up like a turret press with all equipment mounted on a turntable. Square would work better than round all I would need to do is rotate it and lock it down. The center turn able an anchor point and a locking point has me scratching my head.

                The smallest one is only 3 1/4" square, 1 3/4" tall, and weighs 3 1/2 lbs, it also indexes every 90 degrees.

                There are also smaller lazy Susan bearing, used in cabinet making, but I don't think they would be stout enough.

                  Can you put a thick piece of 6" wide steel by 3/4" thick and let it hang off the bench.

                    How about this with a 2 foot x 2 foot 3/4 plywood screwed to it?

                    This would be even better...hold 1000 pounds.

                    Keep in mind a1 foot x 1 foot square is going to need about 17" to clear when turning.

                    An 18" x18" would need nearly 26" to clear when turning

                    A 2 foot by 2 foot will need nearly 34 " to clear when turning it.

                    After reading again....I may have misunderstood. I thought you were looking for something to keep supplies within reach. If you are talking to mount your presses, that is a whole different species! LOL

                      Well what popped in mind was a U shaped bench were up 5 presses could be mounted. Depth and height and reach could custom to chair and person in the chair. Would be my way even though not wheel chair bound but office chair to roll around, think the shelf space.
