    Default X and Y - dimple jig done - pic

    Dimple Jig is done

    You can see this stamping is not aligned.

    Male and Female dies are about ten degrees off.

    Most of the work will involve shimming the dieset to easily align in an 80% blank.

    Thanks Kevin_M4, this was my first ever metal working. Seems like it took forever but it was real fun and worth it.

    Now i see why you don't spend $39 bucks for a drill press and $15 bucks for a drill press vice - they suck.

    That can also do the X if you turn it upside down the second time. Good job!!

    C-Clamp? The base would be the female die and the male die could be attached to the screw.

    First test done. See above for pics. Tested using my new Harbor Freight 12ton, AWESOME.

    Now I need to make the selector dimples. Right side is about 16mm by 10mm with a 5mm radius. same, 1mm deep. Left side is just a 7mm diameter dimple.
