    Got double flouro light in ceiling, and an old standard halogen reading light over the scales and press.
    Never had an issue with electronic scales as far as I know - except for a worn out OEM battery, in my first attempts to measure weight.
    Problem was a 'drifting' tare measurement - new battery fixed that.
    But borrowing a mate's beam scales to check a few drops, as I 'refuel' the cartridges.

    I put in 3 LED down lights spaced out over my bench, plus LED strip either side of the toolhead on my Dillon 650 and under a 1200mm shelf over the bench. The strip is run from a driver mounted inside the casefeeder housing, flip the switch and the casefeeder runs and the lights turn on.

    I'm running double 5ft fluoro fittings with LED tubes. Same amount of light as the fluoro tubes, but they seem to last forever. No flickering etc.
    I bit more expensive to buy up front, but not needing to replace the tubes and starter probably means they work out cheaper in the long run.

    last night I loaded up some pills after a couple of rums. couldn't really see in my dimly lit garage so just put the case under the thrower until overflowing then tipped a little bit out to make room for the projectile. I clearly didn't make enough room though coz when I was seating the bullets I felt the crunch of the powder compressing... might get someone else to test those ones at the Toby shoot in the weekend

    I scored a big ass industrial light out of a cool store and it hangs above the bench.

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    This looks the business. How is it powered?

    That's a weird place to reload your ammo?
