Simple Dimples

30 June 2021

Speed holes are an age-old technique used by fabricators to lighten components or allow airflow, but they can also add strength if dimples are punched. Franklin Performance offers a set of 45-degree dimple dies that remove the barrier of needing to have a press in your home garage, as they can be actioned using an M12 or M16 bolt through the central hole. This is also great for working in situ, or on large panels. Offered individually, or as a set of six ranging from ½-inch to 2-inch, they are machined from tool steel, and heat treated with a unique oil-impregnation process right here in New Zealand to ensure they will last. A complete set retails for $399.00. Order online from
