320 - Pellet Border Bail Impression Dies - 3 Sizes

The pellet border bail is available in 3 sizes ranging from 14 - 25mm in length. These dies are designed to be used with thin sheet. They can also be used as a template for a completely flat bail. Simply press your metal very lightly to achieve the outline and use this as a guide for sawing a perfectly symmetrical bail.

The large bail is available as a single design. The two smaller sizes are sold as a pair on a larger die.

  • Instructions

    Can I use this tool with a hammer and a punch?

    No - This design is intended to be used in a hydraulic press.

    Can I use this tool with a hydraulic press?

    Yes, all Gemina impression dies and shot plates can be used in a press. Ensure your metal is annealed regularly before you begin. Intermediate annealing may be required to achieve a full impression.

    Can I use this tool with the YQK-70 hydraulic crimping tool?

    NO - This design cannot be used in the crimping tool.

    How much silver do I use with this design?

    Select the thickness of sheet you require and cover the design completely.

    What shape of silver can I use?

    Flat sheet:

    Cut sheet to size so that it covers the design. Press until you have an outline of the design. Trim, anneal and repeat until you have a full depth impression. Remember to use sheet that is thicker than the impression depth of the die. Alternatively, you can use thinner sheet with urethane (or a soft metal pusher) to create a hollow impression.

    Removing your impression from the die

    Occasionally, some dies can 'hold on' to your metal. This is more common when using a press compared to hammering. Ensure the dies are clean before use. If you wish, you can apply a very small amount of oil into the die before forming as this can help removal. Excess metal will create a flange around the design that will aid in removal after hammering or pressing. Carefully use a thin bladed knife under the excess metal to lift the impression out of the die.

    Some additional information can be found here shot plate and impression die tips.
