Modify Die to Fit Non-Standard Machines
We charge $10.00 to modify dies to fit certain machines. Scroll down to see if your machine is listed in RED, and type the name here:

Precision machined from high quality hardened steel.  Blued for durability.  Choose either plain, spur, or self-piercing plain grommet die.  Plain and spur grommet die sets include cutter.  Cutters may be re-sharpened, if necessary.  Self-piercing plain dies (when used with self-piercing grommets) eliminate the need for pre-punched holes —no cutter required.

Grommet die sets are fully adjustable:  simply tighten or loosen the upper die to accommodate different materials.

Spur grommets are generally used for heavy canvas work; we recommend plain grommets for most common applications.  Self-piercing grommets are plain, but made from a heavier gauge with a sharpened edge to facilitate the set.  All types of grommets available by request.

NOTE:  Sometimes a little more "oomph" is required to set larger grommets.  Many customers achieve more leverage by slipping a length of PVC pipe over the machine handle.

CHECK THE LIST!  Compatible machines are listed below.  If your machine is RED, your new die must be modified to fit it —the shank ("stem") must be turned to a smaller diameter.  We charge $10.00 for this service:
  • Defiance No. 1920
  • Defiance No. 23 Kick Press
  • Dyna-Line No. 1920 (and probably Lip Lok)
  • Osborne W-1 and W-3
  • Wade
  • Handy Jr. No. 1*** PLEASE READ BELOW
Grommet dies 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 plateYou are essentially 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.

Your grommet die must be modified to fit your Handy Jr. base.
