I purchased this as a Christmas gift as a gift for my Dad. I live in the USA and he lives in Canada. It's something he's always wanted and I was so excited to find a reputable item here on Amazon! But sadly it broke the first time he used it! It may be due to user error as he has never used an item like this before so do not judge our experience to your own needs and wants for this item. I was highly disappointed it broke but I sent off a message to the seller and they fixed the problem straight away and are even sending my Dad a brand new unit to Canada!! I am BEYOND IMPRESSED and will purchase from this seller again due to the high quality of customer service I have received. The unit was in perfect condition when we received it, in protective wrapped and wrapped well and it's heavy design was absolutely ideal for those who are creative newbies in the workshop! 5 stars to the seller.
I used this to make brass shims in bearings for hit and miss engines
Dont try to cut the circle with the beveled edge side that looks like a bullet. It doesnt work that way.
It is the flat bottom side you have to use to cut the circle out.
I also highly recommend getting the replacement acrylic part on Amazon.
Or search acrylic replacement part for punch and die set.
Im so happy to have this replacement acrylic for when I accidentally break the original piece. I am not using a press and I know I will likely ruin the original with my mallet.
