Part# 12-00907
MFR Model# DRDT-2


DRDT-2 (Dash 2) is a welded steel c-frame rivet dimpler. It replaces the common impact c-frame rivet dimplers of the past. With its sample mechanical advantage, dimpling is fast, easy, noise free, less fatiguing and safe on the skins. With a fully adjustable die holder you can achieve consistent and accurate dimples**. The DRDT-2 incorporates a new low force spring return system that prevents skin damage from the accidental release of the handle without increasing the force required to dimple. 22" throat depth allows dimpling of up to 44" wide sheets. The relief under the lower frame member provides dimpling access to spars, ribs, leading edge skins. Designed and analyzed using state of the art engineering tools the DRDT-2 can handle all your dimpling needs on your project.

Now dimpling is consistent, easy, safe, less fatiguing and noise free. Now you can dimple at anytime day or night without disturbing your family or neighbors. The experimental aircraft builder can now achieve commercial quality results in their our own shop.

The DRDT-2 is painted with an industrial powder coat giving one of the toughest finishes available. The -2 comes ready to dimple (minor assembly required).

Great tool. Much faster and cleaner dimples than the dimples with the hammer wacker.
