SWAG Off Road Pipe Dimple Die Set (5) Pieces
Pipe is designed for fluid transfer through pipes and it is measured on the inside diameter, that is why pipe dimple dies have a odd size outside diameter.
1.115" OD For 3/4" Pipe,
1.362" OD For 1.0" Pipe,
1.6875" OD For 1.25" Pipe,
1.9375" OD For 1.50" Pipe,
2.375" OD For 2.00" Pipe
Whether it be for cosmetic applications or looking to improve the rigidity of plate steel the SWAG dimple dies are capable of dimpling 3/16" steel.
Made in the USA out of domestic steel these dimple dies come with a life time warranty, you split them in half and we will replace them free of charge, it's that simple. These dimple dies are CNC machined out of 4140 quenched and tempered chrome moly steel that has a tensile strength of 150,000 KSI. Each dimple die has a through hole drilled into both the male and female dies so they can be used in a few different ways.
The beauty of the pipe dimple dies, is you can use the knock out punch dies that come in the kit offered from Harbor Freight PN #96718. You simply need to drill a 3/4" hole then use the knock out punch set. A hole is cut by compressing the male and female punch dies through thin gauge material. This method saves you the time and increases efficiency by eliminating the hassle of using a hand held drill with a hole saw. Keep in mind that you are limited to 11 gauge mild steel and 16 gauge stainless steel when using the knock the punch set.
The first method is they can be used in any H frame hydraulic press where the material you are dimpling is small enough to fit between the vertical frame rails of the press. Simply drill the appropriate size hole using an industry stand hole saw, then insert the male and female dies to the correct orientation then using the hydraulic cylinder, press the dimple dies down to flare the metal.
The second method is they can be bolted together using a standard off the shelf grade 8 fasteners 3/4" dia bolt or 7/16" dia bolt depending upon which dimple die size you have. This method is ideal for large pieces of metal that are too large to fit in a H frame style press, dimpling on a vehicle or dimpling after the fact....."Hey we should have put a dimple die there"...Well now you can with the through hole design that is standard on every die set we produce.
The third method is they can be pressed together using a 10 Ton Hydraulic Knockout Punch Driver as shown in the picture above. Not sure what one is, check out Ebay or Harbor Freight, they sell for ~ $100.00 shipped to your door step and they are a real time saver if you are dimpling a large number of items or hard to reach dimple die locations, it included a manual hand pump to apply hydraulic pressure to the punch set.
The knock out punch set is a quality product as we have dimpled thousands of holes for years using this set up. We even attached a Harbor freight foot operated air/hydraulic foot pump
Central Hydraulics - item #98318 for even faster semi-production speed dimpling.
The HF Knock Out Punch Set can be purchased for $90
The HF 10,000 PSI Air Hydraulic Pump
can be purchased for $150
Please Note: We do not sell the knock out punch set or Air/Hydraulic foot switches, they are shown in the image gallery for reference only.

Very good quality and great shipping as I am about as far away from Swag as possible and still be in the same country. These work very well as does everything else that I have purchased.
