Successfully finished designing a keyfob project for the scouts. A lot of skilled volunteers helped in the making of this, and I hope to prepare 50-100 pieces in preparation for an area event

The die is CNC milled cold-rolled steel, pattern is my own design. Following the milling, it was hardened by heating with a torch to a dull red & quenched in oil. Pieces can be cut with an arbor press.

The stamping is done with an arbor press fitted with a drill chuck to make quick changes for tools as each scout makes her project.

Using a chuck on the arbor press ram is a great idea.

I am sure one of the scout will catch the leather bug.
