You guys got me to thinking about "quick change" die holders for those presses. What I would envision is a "die holders" built and welded to the upper and lower frame where the current dies are located.

The big question is... With dies in place, how much travel is available/how much distance is between the upper and lower dies? If you build/install quick change die plates/holders, depending on the thickness you use, you're going to loose a couple inches. If there is enough room left (that's totally up to you) then I would certainly go the route of making the dies "quick change".

If you want, I can take some pics of the way the die holders are on Orange Crush and post them....just let me know.
