KX Dies to Cut Holes

  • Quickly cuts out a hole in your fabric for easy snap, rivet, or grommet placement.  Both a top cutting die piece and a bottom piece are needed. Our 17mm bottom die accommodates top cutting dies up to 17mm, so you can use the same bottom die for all smaller sizes.

    • Cuts best on thicker material.
    • Thin material may not achieve completely clean cuts. 
    • If your material does *not* stretch (ie. leather, card stock), a punch die the same size as the grommet is recommended. Example: 5mm punch for 5mm grommets.
    • If your material has any stretch, a  punch die slightly smaller than the grommet size is recommended since the resulting hole will stretch out.
    • Due to the mechanics of hole punching, the dies will wear down with continued use and will need to be replaced periodically.

    Top piece cutting dies are available in the following sizes:
    • 2.5mm (~1/16") (for our rivets and snaps)
    • 4mm (~1/8")
    • 5mm (~3/16")
    • 7mm (~1/4")
    • 10mm (~3/8")
    • 12mm (~1/2"
    • 17mm (~11/16")

    The following tools are REQUIRED -- also see 2nd thumbnail image: ( which tool do I have?)
  • Bottom die shank: approx 3/8" diameter
    Top die shank: approx 5/16" diameter

  • Dies are industrial equipment and may have scratches, rust, oil or other cosmetic imperfections that will not hinder their function. Remove any remaining oil on dies by attaching several snaps to scrap fabric. Returns or exchanges cannot be accepted unless a defect affects function.

    Because punch dies have blades, they will eventually become dull with continued use and will need to be replaced.
