Tools For Job 3


Four years ago I made THIS dimple die out of steel plate and a big ass bolt and nut. It worked… but not well. Fourteen gauge sheet was enough to seriously mangle an M14 bolt… but I used it all over my AE86 and felt pretty good about it.

Now, my tool collection is growing rapidly and I’ve retired my home brew dimple dies in favour of the TMR pieces pictured above. They are not cheap, but somehow for the first time, I’d way rather give up a few bucks than fight with stuff that barely works. The more tools I buy, the better I feel about wrenching. The better I feel about wrenching, the more tools I want to buy…

Next on my list is a milling machine. 😐
