If there aren’t things on your bucket list that never get done, you’re probably not thinking big enough. I agree that it’s unlikely that this particular “some day” would happen, but it’s because I’m too busy doing other things that I want to do more Smiley

huh. Is that a custom die cutter? Or a standard one? I've been thinking about a custom die cutter but have no idea where to start looking for information.

Yes. Full custom die for a leather press. I researched a lot of different approaches, and it took me a couple of years to get to this point. I’m sure you can do it faster if you want to... especially if you already know you want to go with a die and aren’t comparing it to other methods like laser cutting. If there’s a specific die design you have in mind, I might be able to help you create the drawing and walk you through the process I went through to have mine made.

For me I was thinking about cutting cardboard rather than leather. I'd like to stamp out 1/3 scale IPSC targets. So roughly torso shaped a little under the size of a standard 8.5x11 sheet of paper, using only right angles. I probably wouldn't buy a leather press, I have an arbor press I might use or I'm sure I could rig something. I just have no idea how feasible getting that kind of die would be.

That’s going to be pretty expensive as a custom die because of the size., and it wouldn’t even fit in the leather press I have.  I would look at something like a vinyl cutter, laser cutter, or a light-duty rolling die cutter like the Sizzix Big Shot. You can order custom Big Shot dies straight from the sizzix website, but you’re probably looking at several hundred dollars for the bigger sized Big Shot machine and a die.
An arbor press probably doesn’t have the surface area to do a big die like you’re talking about either. You’d probably need a big hydraulic clicker die system to do a straight press type of die and those clickers run upwards of $10k.

Another thing you could do is hire a custom box maker to do it. We have a local box factory that will make a big die for a custom box size for a few hundred dollars... but then you buy the boxes on top of that. In your case you would buy “boxes” that are all flat, so they shouldn’t cost a lot.

I figured there was a reason nobody offered them cheap  Grin

It's just the scotch in me saying "hey we're throwing out this cardboard...wouldn't it be nice..."

What company did u get it from, would u know if they offered this?  I am looking at getting some custom branding irons, to mark my leather, knife sheaths, and sling pouches. Since i mostly use leather.
