    Do you think there is a market for a powder measure bracket like this?

    Can't see the bracket. Is the powder measure in front of it in the second pic?

    The powder measure bracket is in the front left corner of the box, right in this photo, and partially obscured by the powder measure. I can take another photo with the bottle in place.

    No doubt someone would buy it, but enough to make it profitable. I don't believe so.

    That bracket is a little more robust with it screwing into the box than the Sinclair one that I have that mounts on the corner. If you made and sold them yourself you could probably sell a few and may be worth your time but so few people load at the range these days. I'd probably buy one if they weren't too much but would prefer a design that doesn't require screwing into the box although I bet that makes it pretty solid.

    Although I wouldn't have a need for it, what if it mounted via a "rare earth" magnet instead of a bolt?

    I'm a little late to the party, but have to agree with the rest of the posters: the demand is just not there. Over the years a number of companies have offered powder measure brackets and stands. The Sinclair one was quite popular, but others sold well too. Most of the folks I compete with have made their own out of wood or metal.

    Something I learned is, a great idea (or product) is not always a profitable one - or even worth the effort. Just make a couple for yourself and enjoy them. If someone sees one and wants it, then make them one for a decent price.

    C6E0D131-DB80-4019-9297-5C11E3DA2E3B.jpeg Here is a picture of my bracket “unmounted”. As you can see it much more compact and easily packed for the trip to the range.
