either plain or spur grommet die Spur grommets are generally used for heavy
canvas work; we recommend plain grommets for most common applications. Cutters can be re-sharpened, if necessary. Dies available without cutters—please ask. Grommets available by request.
Sometimes a little more "oomph" is required to set larger grommets.

indicate your machine brand in "Comments" section at check-out. We
will turn the stem of your new button die to fit the following machines,
if necessary, at no charge:
- Defiance No. 1920
- Defiance No. 23 Kick Press (with slight modification)
- Dyna-Line No. 1920 (and probably Lip Lok)
- Osborne W-1 and W-3
- Handy Jr. No. 1*** PLEASE READ BELOW
*** = Grommet dies will fit Handy Jr.
machines ONLY if the machine pin (piston) is replaced with an Osborne pin. If
you want to continue using button dies, you MUST also purchase an
Osborne plate. You will essentially be turning your Handy Jr. machine into an Osborne machine. Your machine will function exactly the same and you can switch the old pin back at any time.
*** = If you replace your Handy Jr. pin with an Osborne pin... we MUST modify grommet dies so that they will fit into your Handy Jr. base. PLEASE let us know in the "Comments" section at check-out that you have a Handy Jr. machine with an Osborne pin.
