The Grommet Setting Hand Machine may be a costly investment, but it is a professional tool that will help save time. It is also a very versatile machine.
The disk that is shown in the photo is only used for covering buttons, remove it to use other dies. It also comes with a hardened white plastic disk for use with the grommet setting dies that come with a cutting or punch die. You will need a hex key or allen wrench to attach the various dies available.
You can use the Grommet Setting Hand Machine for setting many sizes of grommets. You can buy the snap setting dies in different sizes, rivet setting dies, and the dies for covering buttons.
You will need to mount it to a table, we use a small butcher block table with shelves underneath to keep dies and supplies. It comes with an allen wrench to change the dies and other than that it’s just pull and set.
