TMR Customs Dimple Dies – Review

Quick review on my new TMR Customs Dimple Die 5 Piece Fabricator Set. Includes 1/2″, 1″, 1-1/2″, 2″, and 2-1/2″ Dies.

CNC machined in-house from the highest grade domestic materials available, TMR Customs Dimple Dies are a tool that will last you a lifetime, at a price that won’t break the bank!

Dimple dies/flared hole dies are used to add strength and rigidity to sheet metal panels. TMR Customs Dimple Dies are rated for a maximum sheetmetal thickness of 3/16″ Mild Steel & 1/8″ Chromoly.

Each die starts life as a solid billet of high grade domestic steel. They CNC machine each dimple die to exacting tolerances in-house on their Mazak CNC Turning Center. After the machining is complete, each die is sent to a dedicated heat treat facility and hardened to the optimal hardness level. After heat treating, each die is sent to a dedicated coating facility where they are coated not only for good looks, but also to protect your investment in a high quality tool.

LIFETIME WARRANTY!

Just a quick video/product review of a strip disk that I picked up from Roark Supply. I’ve never used these types of disks before and I have to say I’m impressed! I found what I need to strip down the ambulance frame when I’m ready.
