Die Setup?

Recommended Posts

 I remember a while back someone mentioned having a jig or something on his LG to be able to quickly change out smaller die rather than the large ones we normally use, does anyone have the name for it or a set of plans for that jig setup? Trying to avoid having to spend alot on the regular sized die blanks and having to cut them to shape myself...

You can also just use a taller box that fits over your bottom flat die and then use steel drops as shims to keep things from jumping around too much.  I think a better plan is to make or buy a dovetail with a couple screw holes then you can make short dies from old truck axle or other scrap and weld them to a short flat bar and bolt them on.  At one time Little Giant was selling these, the are not to hard to make so I expect you can do either.
