Stack-On Offers a New Reloading Bench

stack-on bench

In the firearms community, most people probably know Stack-On as a company that low-cost lock boxes and metal storage cabinets. For many people where dollars are scarce, Stack-On offers a reasonable way to secure your guns without breaking the bank.

For 2017, the company is offering a new reloading bench that aims to provide a good quality work area without the need to dip into the retirement account.

The Adjustable Height Pro Reloading Bench has room for a press or two plus a fair amount of supplies and related tools. As the name suggests, the bench can be adjusted from a height of 29″ to 41″. This makes it easy to set up to the correct height for people of all sizes whether they are standing or sitting on a stool.

The legs and frame are made os steel with a gloss black epoxy finish. The work top is 1.25″ multi-ply birch wood while the storage shelf underneath and above the work surface are made of steel. The unit has a 500 pound weight capacity.

Stack-On states the unit is “ready to assemble” and ships via UPS (not freight like some oversized products.) It includes a pegboard, leveling feet and wall/floor mounting hardware.

I had a chance to check the demo model out at the SHOT Show and thought it was well made. It seemed solid, though I would still want to tie it into the wall studs out of an abundance of caution. The company expects to ship these in March, but has not announced an MSRP.

    Odds Harbor Freight will announce the same at 20% MSRP next month?

    • Rick O’Shay

      They won’t call it a reloading bench though.

      • Because it isn’t a reloading bench, it is a cheap work bench. Other than overhang considerations, there is not much difference between a work bench and a reloading bench.

      Same factory in China. Call it a workbench and sell it at HF for $100. Specialize it by changing the name and Cheaper Than Dirt will sell it for $200.

      • I have a $99 bench I got at HF and it works perfect as a reloading bench. I was shocked, given it came from HF, that it lasted more than 1 or 2 reloading sessions.

        • Nashvone

          I bought one for cleaning purposes. It’s held up well for that and several other uses. I haven’t gotten into reloading but when I do, I’ll certainly consider getting another one to dedicate for that purpose.

      They already have one complete with spontaneous disassembling drawers.

    This looks like a job for $30 Worth Of 2×4’s And Plywood Man!

    I almost want it. I like the company, they corrected a part issue on a thing I ordered nicely. All my other “wood” furn is espresso colored tho, and I don’t like peg board.

    Married with a toddler so mine is slightly more “refined”. Total cost ~$200, $150 for the solid wood entertainment center, $20 for lights, $30 for door and drawer locks. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/03714bdb2e967a3ee8e5feda559a941352b912c755a914c571206745ea2b2cbc.jpg

    This looks like a normal store bought work bench with a new name and probably a new higher price, I use an old cabinet that was meant to be a bar that measures 20 inches deep by 40 inches long, I put a extra MDF top on it for good measure, it has plenty of storage and doors that keep everything concealed and dust free, I bought a 3 door locking metal tool cabinet from harbor Freight to store things like dies and tools, I use one end to store primers and gunpowder and mounted it on the wall just above the bench, there’s plenty of room and best of all I got the bar cabinet for free when a family member was getting rid of it
