Each dimple die has a through hole drilled into both the male and female dies so they can be used in a few different ways. The first method is they can be used in any H frame hydraulic press where the material you are dimpling is small enough to fit between the vertical frame rails of the press. Simply drill the appropriate size hole using an industry stand hole saw, then insert the male and female dies to the correct orientation then using the hydraulic cylinder, press the dimple dies down to flare the metal.
The second method is they can be bolted together using a standard off the shelf grade 8 fasteners 3/4" dia bolt or 7/16" dia bolt depending upon which dimple die size you have. This method is ideal for large pieces of metal that are too large to fit in a H frame style press, dimpling on a vehicle or dimpling after the fact..... "Hey we should have put a dimple die there"...Well now you can with the through hole design that is standard on every die set we produce. The third method is they can be pressed together using a 10 Ton Hydraulic Knockout Punch Driver as shown in the picture above. The knock out punch set is a quality product as we have dimpled thousands of holes for years using this set up. Central Hydraulics - item #98318 for even faster semi-production speed dimpling.
