    Hopefully, you will find the time to complete these projects and share the results with the community.

    With the 3/8 holes drilled, any of the rivet, snap and grommet dies available from Tandy Leather will work in the press. But cetainly more satisfying to make yourself...

    I made mine to hold my gasket hole punches. Works great!

    I use mine as a tapping aid. Place a center punch tool in arbor, place part to be tapped on the plate, place tap with handle on it between. Lightly press down and turn tap. this will make sure the tapped hole is at 90 degrees.
