Figure a few of us on here have a dimple die set. I did some FEA testing a few years ago and created a mini "bible" on how a dimple die hole affects the strength and stiffness of a part. I figured I'd post some of it online. Very Happy

At the time when I was looking the Lightspeed set was the "best", so that's what I bought. I'm sure there are a few more options out there now though.

Sounds good! So easy to just CNC cut the hole and then flare it afterwards, as opposed to using a hole saw!
