Will KAM Dies Fit my Press?

August 07, 2018

There are many presses out there that are made to look similar to our DK93 KAM press model.  But if they don't say KAM on them, then they are *not* KAM.

Generally speaking, our dies are molded to fit our KAM presses.  Below are the dimensions of our 3 models of dies, so you can compare them to your existing press to see if they might fit.  Compatibility is not guaranteed if our dies are used with presses or fasteners not sold on our site.  Please review our return policy.

 

Dimensions are approximate.

DK93 KAM Press:
Top die shank: approx 8mm (5/16") diameter (screws in - M8 threading)
Bottom die shank: approx 19mm (3/4") diameter 

DK98 KAM Press:
Top die shank: approx 9mm (3/8") diameter (requires allen wrench)
Bottom die shank: approx 12mm (1/2") diameter

KX KAMsnaps Press:
Top die shank: approx 8mm (5/16") diameter (screws in - M8 threading)
Bottom die shank: approx 9.9mm  diameter

Additionally, we offer adapters that will allow the following non-KAM presses to be used with our KX-style dies:

TLF:
Top die shank: approx 3/8" smooth shank diameter
Bottom die shank: approx 3/8" smooth shank diameter
(Fits Tandy Leather, Very Baby, One Stop Diaper Shop)

GST:
Top die shank: approx 6mm (1/4") diameter (screws in - M6 threading)

If any of the dimensions above match your press, please email sales@kamsnap.com and we can direct you to the adapters needed for our dies to fit our press.
