    Hi augercreek

    The Dimple die is used by compressing the two haves together which will strengthen the sheet metal by putting a flange or a lip on the out side edge of the circle, after the sheet metal it has had a hole cut in it. This system is used in the aircraft and off road circles where less weight is wanted.
    Thanks for asking. :O)
