Pete,
We had no idea what was involved in making these dies. I did not mean to be diminish the work involved. We're happy to pay a fair price for them. We want these dies. I've been looking all over for something like this. Just let us know what a set would cost. We'll be ordering them.

Pete, et al, I have restored the photos of the dies that were "mislaid" during the site migration. I apologize for the inconvenience, and I am still fascinated by these and their potential.

A STANDARD SET... at lease for now. I have added the standard "Large Door" to go with the "Small Door". And we already had the 2 most common window openings. As requested bu Lucy and Lee I have added the most common "Arched Window". The "Arched Window" accommodates the WM-3 Mullion as well as CEL-4 and CEL-4s. (see Photos). The dies are $25.00 each or the complete set of 5 for $120.00. Remember for the same price I will build you a die to your specifications.

They sure make a nice cut. Very authentic looking. Probably very close to what the Japanese builders used back in the 1920s and 1930s.

Donald,
This is the email I have used before and it's the one listed under Pete's place - oehmen@sbcglobal.net. I think it works. I have these dies and they make life so much easier. I am very happy with them.

Lucy
