    Basic Lee Reloader Press - how did you mount yours

    Received my Lee Reloader Press yesterday - I already have a lee turret. I am planning on using the reloader primarily for depriming prior to brass cleaning. But the way the press is built, I would have to plan on dismounting it ever time the spent primer holder is full or build some sort of mount that allows me to clear them out or cut a hole in my bench (which I really don't want to do).
    So I am curious if there are any simple and effective approaches to handling this issue with this very simple press.

    I have a friend that bolted down 3 short pieces of 2x4's to form a u shape. He then bolted his basic press two the 2x4's. The primers fell into the u shape and he sucked them up with his shop vac. Worked for him. I use a portable block of wood that I made along with a hammer and punch. I can de-prime in different places at my convenience, usually while watching tv. Primers fall into a catch that I just empty into the garbage can.

    I own 2 progressives and a Lyman turret press. I bolted 'em to 2x12s. I can either use my Black and Decker Workman 15 dollar knock off bench from Harbor freight, mount it in the bench, then clamp it down with a C clamp so as it won't move around, or I can clamp it to my garage bench to load as if it were permanent mounted there. In the portable bench, I can load in the living room in the AC. It's hot out in that garage this time of year. Heat index was 106 the other day. Cooler weather, I can just clamp it to the garage work bench. Either way, set up is a matter of seconds. The presses come out for storage under the bench in the shop.

    I bought a Lee Reloading stand for my 4 hole turret set up.... ( i live in an apartment) it works real good, takes up little space and can be moved around,
    the concrete blocks makes it a little cumbersome but, you can remove the blocks before you move it... just food for thought.... you could set up your press with this set up somewhere else...

    What I found out after getting my universal depriming die was that it did not take near the pressure as it was with my caliber specific deprimer/resizer. With that said, i have been able to get by by simply c-clamping it to my loading bench. When the hole fills up, I vacuum it out. However, I am going to make a form to allow the loader to be mounted more permanently. I do like that small lee loading bench. It's portable enough I could set it up out on the patio and deprime while I am relaxing.

    Mine is about half-full, but every couple of primers already fall out onto the bench anyways (they miss the drop hole for some reason). I figured I'd just vacuum out when it got full but otherwise wouldn't worry about emptying it.
