    Sometimes I'm a smartass....

    I've made dies to use an arbor press to dimple stainless flat washers for a 40 Ford project for one of my customers. It's not rocket surgery.

    The press is one of the most underused of fabrication tools we have.

    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft

    Love that thread. I'll end up buying his entire kit at some point when I have room again for a large hydraulic press. Dimples rule.

    I followed the link on the first page. His die kits are much more reasonable!
