My old wooden loading blocks have pissed me off for the last time. One is badly warped and both have the holes drilled so big the rounds flop around like a sailor on his way back to the ship from liberty. The commercial plastic trays I have annoy me too. One side only has 36 (!!) holes. The other side has 86 holes and the rifle cases like 7.62x51 just flop around too although not as bad as 223s do.

 

So enough. I sat down last night and drew up a bench block specifically for ammo in the size of 308/30-06/8mm etc. I wanted a couple of specific features on the block.

 

1. Snug enough fit that the case will not wobble around.

2. Tall enough to keep the case from falling over.

3. Spacing set far enough apart that my big fingers can easily grab individual cases even when the tray is full.

4. Hold 50 cases.

 

So this one fits all of the above. The size and depth of the holes are important to me so the case will stand upright while a powder funnel is set on the mouth for hand loading powder.

 

So here it is. I realize this is not a 'sexy' item but it will be appreciated and useful in my workshop.

Surprisingly the drawing took me 3 hours to create. Lots of tiny edits to connect all the holes to each other. 8 hours to print, $1.17 in PLA plastic.

 

And I can scale it up or down to fit other cases.

Sweet !

 

I'd like to order a few for .308/7.62X51 trays.

 

On the off chance of you being willing/able, I thought I would ask now,

because I figured it would be a while for you to get a round tuit.

 

I expect you to make a profit, of course, to help you support your hobby,

and your inventions.

If you do decide to sell those post some prices and watch them disappear.

If you do decide to sell those post some prices and watch them disappear.

 

I've created a version for 223 (see below) and will work on one that fits 6.8 SPC/6.5 Grendel/762.39 etc.

 

Pricing. $11 for the first one, $7 each additional. Price includes shipping. Your choice of size and color. I will be happy to print these for any of you interested.

 

8 hours to print....
Damn!

 

Yup. The display on the printer says 7h 54m run time when completed. That is the present huge shortcoming of desktop 3D printing. I can print really nice looking stuff and take forever or print a bit more quickly and get a working product but with less than great looking results. Or do as I presently do pick a middle ground that gives a presentable appearance but does not take forever to print.

 

I've also created a 223 holder.

That is straight out of the printer. I need to 'post process' to clean up the stringing fuzz left over.
