It looks like you have the space. I’m going to suggest that you consider a stronger base for your press than the table. We can generate a lot of force in the reloading process, and tables like that one tend ro be too “wobbly” to handle it. There are ready-made options, but many of us have opted to build our own to suit.
I can tell by your tool organization that reloading is going to be right up,your alley! 🤠

I built this bench with an old table top I found. It’s rather sturdy and I’ve put a lot of force on the little corner vice. The table top is about 8 feet long and weighs in the neighborhood if 100 lbs. I’m thinking I’ll have to reinforce the press with some wood and I’ve got plenty.

That should work. A square of 1/2” cdx or similar underneath to bolt through should do it 🤠
 
Is that a Bow Square on the Table? Need fallow up pic's.
Certainly is. I shoot a Billy Rice Scorcher long bow. I used to be a fletcher for a small archery club. I made all the arrows you see on the photo. We still meet once a year and have a tournament. Followed by a barbecue. Then cigars and whiskey to round off the evening. It’s loads of fun. Now, I’m thinking we’ll have to have a gun shoot!!

Nice arrows!! Bear 2 blade broadheads also looks like a Bear Montana long bow hanging there also.

Guess we need a new Traditional Archery thread also. So we don't hijack this thread.
