    Best-Buy. The low-price & free shipping make these dies the best buy.

    The DIY-Holster dies work very well. I'm new when it comes to Kydex, and I have not had a single problem using these dies. I've read about eyelets splitting, but I have not had a single problem. I actually tried to split one by really mashing down on it with my Arbor press.

    So here's how I got started. I found a half ton Arbor Press on-sale at Harbor Freight, and I used the 20% off coupon. The Arbor press cost me about $17.00. I watched a few You-tube videos on how to do this. I used a 3/8" drill bit and my drill press to drill a hole in the Arbor Press ram. The steel on the Arbor Press Ram is fairly soft, and was easy to drill; just add a bit oil (any oil will work) to the drill bit, and put a bit more in the hole as you drill. You could also do this with a hand drill. My project turned out perfect, but I don't believe it needs 100% precision. These are not reloading dies, and all you are doing is rolling over the edge of an eyelet. The take away here is that these dies work very well, and are easy to use. Good luck.

    These dies give me a perfect roll over. I don't have a press yet but with a board base for the bottom die, and a hmmer for the top die I get the same results. The work perfectly for what I need, also at a great price. DIY is my first stop for kydex and tooling.

    AWESOME DIES

    I love these dies. Like others I put them on a modified 1/2 ton press from Harbor Freight. It was easy and took about 20 minutes to setup.
