Broke 3/32 Dimple Die...Again!!!!
Well, I went out today and deburring and dimpling the bottom wing skins. I get half-way through dimpling the first skin and whoops...I break another dimple die.
I was obviously not very happy about this. This is the third die I've broken so I'm chalking this one up to user error. I have a couple of ideas I'm going to try to see if that will resolve the issue, but we'll see.
I posted a message to the RV-List and to the VAFForums and asked if anyone was having problems with this sort of thing. Some people said they had problems and others said there was no problem at all. After sending the message to the RV-List, I got a message from Mike at Cleaveland (he monitors the list) and he said that they would send me new dimple dies (one of the dies I broke were tank dies that I had borrowed from another builder). Needless to say, I'm really happy with Cleaveland and they definately get all the business I can give them. Plus, they're butt-easy to order from...they have my account info on file and I just call 'em, give 'em my name and they send me whatever I need and bill my card. Very good service. Buy from 'em!
