Homemade notcher base for my drillpress. No clamping or whatnot, easy to pop the table, slide it in, ready to go.

my first dimple die. this is a 1" and i will be making more sizes soon. it is just made from mild steel and finished with black oxide. i will make the rest of them from a harder material, just not sure exactly what yet.

Nice. What is the tolerances between the dies? Just the thickness of the thickest material you want to dimple?

the angle portion on the dies are cut at a 45* and .250 deep on both halves. the mandrel portion is .990 on the male and 1.005 on the female. i probably could have made this a tighter fit but figured some play would be good.

I had to make this today so I could remove the wiper arms off of the arm that goes to the wiper motor on my truck, so that I could remove the old motor for replacement. Basically, it's used just like a pickle fork.

Don't have pics of many, but here are the obtuse.

Vice stand. Ol' semi brake drum, pipe my buddy's dog got his head stuck in, and some plate.

One I use a ton, a punch I won't smash my fingers with.

One from this week. Nobody around these parts has a 55mm wrench for my mogs, so I cut one out of 1/2" plate. Worked...with an 8' cheater pipe...:smokin:

And the coolant on the cold saw likes to fling on ya when cutting big stuff, so...:grinpimp:
