Chris made a quick change holder and bolted it in. I think that will work good, certainly makes welding on the holder easier. Had we thought of that before I welded my holders to the press I think I'd used that method myself.

Here's what I did to hold dies in place. Just finished a bit ago and haven't cleaned it up yet. Still got to add a small chain to each pin so they don't get lost and to give something to pull pins from holes (nuts) that won't be so hot. All in hindsight I would have cut the "L" bracket longer so all it needed was to drill a hole and drop a pin in. The top holder is the same, but with short bolts used for pins. Those dies get HOT in use.

Ed, you're right, with a group of us working together it's amazing what we can do..... AND with you leading I've learned LOTS over the years.

BillyO, thank you for nice words. Your ideas have helped guide me along in many ways.
