After mounting up my Lee Load Master I discovered I need a place to store my Turrets.
I got 2 pieces of pine, 10x12x1 inch
Glued them together:
Then I drilled in 3 – 4 inch holes
On another piece of pine I used the turret as a template and marked the die holes:
Then I drilled them out:
Using my trim router I took the edge off everything:
And glued it together:
I cleaned up all the outside edged on the table saw, added the french cleat to the back and put a coat of varnish on:
I’ll get an action shot in here when I get the turrets setup.
First off Richard Beck firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
