KX Dies to Cut Holes - 17mm


  •   Important note regarding 17mm top punch dies:
    • Due to the larger size, users may experience more difficulty in applying sufficient pressure for the punch die to cut compared to the smaller sizes.  The denser and thicker the material, the more difficult it will be.
    • Material with soft compression works best -- like soft vinyl.  Denser material, like marine vinyl, may require punching a single layer at a time.
    • Very flat, thin fabric may not achieve clean cuts.
    • If you have too much difficulty, please feel free to contact us.

    Quickly cuts a hole in your fabric for easy 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.

      • 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.

            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.
