Manufactured exclusively for Rio in the USA by Swanstrom, the high-quality dies in this set produce heart-shaped stampings. All parts are made of hardened and tempered, shock-resistant tool steel with precision-ground surfaces. The spring-loaded die plate allows you to easily open and close according to the thickness of the metal being punched. Designed for soft, non-ferrous metals up to 20 ga. (.81mm) when using a hammer and up to 16 ga. (1.29mm) when using a Bonny Doon hydraulic press. IMPORTANT: Always position a shim of the same thickness of the material being cut directly across from that material to keep the plates balanced and ensure a perfectly perpendicular cut. Die sizes (all are 2" tall): • 13/32" (10mm) • 19/32" (15mm) • 25/32" (20mm) • 1-1/16" (27mm) Set includes: • one two-plate cutter block • four dies • one Allen wrench • a strong rubber base (6" x 6" x 1/2") that conveniently holds the cutter and dies
Use a urethane square (1/16" thick, 95 durometer; not included) under the cutters as a support as you cut; the urethane absorbs the energy of the hammer blow, protecting the cutters and the work surface and ensuring a clean, sharp cut.
please note: • Protect the surfaces of your punches by using only brass-head mallets to strike them when cutting. • Always use Bur-Life® on the cutting edges of your punches to keep them cutting cleanly and efficiently for years to come.
These instructions show you how to use the Swanstrom heart shape cutter and center-positioning die set to create perfectly cut heart shapes quickly and easily.
