    Default Storage Ideas

    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to this forum but been reloading for 25 years +.

    Any ideas on keeping a reloading room tidy? I have shelves, drawers, trunks, filing cabinets, window cills, the floor & all that but none utelised correctly. I'm getting fed up.

    Can you help out? Pics would be nice.

    Welcome oscar.
    I have to orginize or it gets outa hand real fast. I find that if I put it all away as soon as I am finished it is easier to get the next time I have a session. I use an old desk, another that I cut the drawers from and utilize them , the new plastic coffee cans are wonderful for keeping brass seperated in. Some shelves are handy to get things in a hurry . I have a very small operation and it is in our TV room. I pretty much have to keep it put away or it gets missing. I am trying to finish a place in the upstairs of the garage to keep heated and clean and I will be moving into it to do my reloading and other gun workings. It will be nice to keep up with it say it is in order then. I somehow feel it will be more challenging then

    shelves shelves and more shelves...

    i like to keep everything together and in a directional flow
    left to right
    powder on a shelf behind [other side of room] primers in a cupboard above the powder
    bullets to load next to them and loaded ammo on other side of them..
    then all the tools go on the bench, or shelves above them for each machine.
    dies on shelve behind machines etc.. and some tools are mounted on a board
    so they can be used in the same spot by bolting through the table, then
    removed and stored when not needed.

    and occasionaly just take 15 min or so to just put stuff away..
