Guillotine Tool

Leave a way in the bottom holder to remove any scale or debris.

Drill a hole in both the top and bottom die so they can be wired together as a set when not in use.  If you have only one set of dies it is not as important as if you have many sets of dies. Yes you can mix dies but you still need to identity the matching set.

I’m planning on buying a few of his tools.  His hot cut tool (and all of his top tools) is made out of h13.  He lives in Taipei and is able to have them machined cheaply.  He builds his tools with stock machined to his specs.  Since I don’t have a power hammer but I want an H13 top cut, his for $30 or so is an attractive option when I consider the cost of the steel and my time.
