Lee Load Master Mount from Becks Armory

First off Richard Beck richard@becksarmory.com at Becks Armory is a great guy to work with. The mounts are hand crafted in America with quality materials. All mounting hardware except the wood screws was also included. The wood screws to mount the rear bracket to my bench are not included because the thickness of my bench was unknown to Richard. My mounts were packed VERY well and received quickly after shipment.

Richard also said he can create custom mounts based on the same design. I just need to send him the measurements. I might get one made for my RCBS Accessory Base Plate. That will be a separate post 🙂

Below is a quick post of what I did to get it mounted.

First thing I did was mount the brace. I used ½ inch wood screws to get the job done.

Then I drilled the bottom 2 holes from back to front.

I held the mount in front and placed the 2 bottom bolts into the before mentioned holes. Made sure it was level and marked the top 2 holes as shown above and drilled them out. Then mounted it up.

When I do it again, I will make a jig with the hole pattern and drill the holes out that way. Don’t know why I didn’t think of that till after the fact.

Here is a shot with the press mounted.

New Shop – Cement

Sorry, out of order. This was done before the skinning, I just forgot to post.

Before we get the cement poured, we need to stub in the electrical. We are ‘splicing into the barn power for this:

And then the cement was poured:

Paint Booth Setup

I wanted to build a paint booth for the shop. I wanted it to help keep over spray down and provide at least a little ventilation. Here is what I cam up with.

I had a 4×8 sheet of hard board from another project. I measured everything out and cut it up:

In the back panel I drilled out some 2 and 3 inch holes in a 20×20 square. The same size as an air filter:

I then made a frame to hold a 20×20 AC filter. Again using scrap I had laying around:

I used Gorilla tape to hold it all together. The hard board is too thin to nail and if I needed to, I could cut the tape and lay it down.

Lastly, I added some lights and a lazy Suzann:
