Common Questions

What is involved with a standard rework?
For a standard rework we will go over the entire surface of the nib. We will re-grind the approach angle to remove wear rings and pick-up. We will re-polish the approach and bearing to a mirror finish. When the die is returned it will be in an "as-new" condition, providing you with more die life.
How do you determine if a die needs to be re-sized?
Let us know the maximum size your die can be opened up to. We'll do our best to rework/repolish without going over your max size. However, if we find this can't be accomplished due to the condition of the die, we can re-size the die to your next useable size.

What if i need the die restored to an original (smaller) size?
In cases where you need to have a die which has worn larger and out of your target size range, we can re-nib the die. We will remove you old nib from your casing, replace it with new one and finish the die to your custom specs.
How should I package scrap dies for pick-up?
Place your broken, worn out dies in a 55 gallon drum. Have this on a 2 x 2 drum pallet. Let us know how much it weighs and we'll take care of the pick-up, Bill of Lading and labels.
