What is a die set??
Posted: Mon Sep 24, 2007 11:20 am
A die set makes up the pieces that hold the snap pieces in the press. It consists of a stud snap holder, socket snap holder (KAM brands screw-in at the top) and a cap holder which pops in at the base.
The die sets come in different sizes - 20, 16 & 14 (although my 16 & 14 share a cap holder).
If you are making a snap press out of something like an old bottle press, you'll need to buy a die set to hold the snaps in the press.

Just wondering if ground shipping would even be available any more? I know the US postal service has abolished it completely.
If it's not, it may be more economical to get it the press GB (haven't gone thru and done the math though).
