Answer: 
It is half-inch particle board. To use it as a reloading bench you would have to add a thicker, sold-wood top which would be easy enough to do. The frame itself is strong enough and stiff enough, but maybe too lightweight for your purposes (unless you weigh it down). Your reloading press would have to be mounted on the left or right side, because if you mount it in the front it will block the drawer.

Answer: 
This work table is light weight and only good for projects that don't require hammering or torque type projects such as pulling a reloader lever. The thickness is 1/2 inch so reloading probably needs a sronger surface to mount the reloader mechanism. I would not recommend this work bench for reloading.

Answer: 
I recommend a bolt type vise. With the drawer under the work area the side rail of the frame and drawer make it too wide for a clamp on vise. I attached a small Record bolt vise also purchased at Home Depot. To get the most out of the vise I placed it in a front corner so that I could rotate it around the corner.

The top is only held by gravity. You would have to secure the top with screws or bolts to the metal frame first. I don't believe the weigh of the entire product is sufficient for securing any heavy items to the attached vice.

The top is too lightweight to hold much of a vise. It is only thin particle board. The frame itself is strong enough for a vise, but you would need to add a 2' x 4' feet sheet of 3/4 inch plywood on top to which you could attach a real vise. Even then it wouldn't really be suitable for most heavy work, because the entire bench is too light to resist heavy pulling and pushing forces. But for light work I Read More

4 ft. Wide by 5 ft. Tall by 2 ft. Deep Black Steel Workbench is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 490.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bench for the price. This bench has many features like easy to construct, ironically because the assembly instructions were terrible. Most important is the many areas to place and store equipment. The quality matches the purchase price, you get what you pay for. The worst thing was that I ordered it for store delivery, I will never do that again. It took three weeks to finally arrive, after the store first lost it then discovered the wrong label was on it, then it had to be reshipped to the store which was going to take another two weeks, I had to finally cancel it then reorder it to be delivered to my home which graciously I was not charged any additional shipping.

I disregarded all the negative reviews on here and bought it, and when I got the box open I found that one of the MDF supports was completely split in half, and the pegboard and work surface were both heavily chipped and damaged. Returned it the next day. Don't make my mistake. If you do, expect to replace some or preferably all of the flimsy MDF with real plywood. The steel seemed sturdy enough.

I found the unit easy to put together, though be careful of the directions as they sometimes make a mistake as to left or right. The only issue was the drawer, which honestly requires two people. I handled it by propping up one side on a chair so I could get the drawer slides in on one side, then moved to the other. The unit is absolutely as described, perhaps better than some of the reviews. My unit was not damaged in any way, and I was able to install it with only my limited skills. It is a shame it doesn't have a light, as the top shelf cries out for one. The unit looks good, is fantastic value for money and will serve me for many years. My only problem was the weight of the package. The package is quite small, but very very heavy. I had to have help loading it at Home Depot and then again at my home, unloading. Then, when I went to assemble it, it was hard to move the box around so I could do the assembly from a chair. But, all in all, a great purchase. Thank you Home Depot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Price is what you pay for... Recommend this for someone who does not have a lot of tools or need to use a workstation on a frequent day by day basis. Directions are poorly written, leaving you on guessing how to assemble without getting parts backwards/upside down. When finally put together, it is pretty sturdy however, you are at a disadvantage if you should need to move/adjust within your space because there are no wheels/casters. Moving then causes you to either shift the entire piece or lift, which runs the risk of popping the beams out of the inserts. Overall, it's a basic design which suits occasional usage.Nothing more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price While it's certainly not a high end piece of equipment, it's cheap and functional. The only real complaint I have is that every board had a ding on at least one corner. Since there was only one tiny piece of wood floating around in the box, I assume the damage was done before the kit was packed. That's just bad. But it's cheap. When the fiberboard starts to disintegrate, I'll replace it with real wood. After adding a power strip and LED lights, it's turned out to be a pretty decent workbench.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid purchase The pros: -sturdy -assembly not complicated -good-looking -excellent price The cons: -The slots were SO tight that it took some serious pounding with a rubber mallet to assemble. Some of the pieces took 30-40 hits in order to get the pieces in the slots. -Some of the metal pieces had scratches. This didn't bother me personally because it's a workbench meant to be used, not a piece of artwork, but some reviewers said it bothered them so I thought I'd mention it. Overall I'm very pleased.
