The above alternative to conventional stops is an excellent method to set up dies accurately and enable easy adjustments to shut height when material thickness changes. The die set is engineered to be .010 off the blocks in the closed position with nominal material thickness. A piece of solder wire 5/32 diameter is placed on the block and then the machine is adjusted to squeeze the lead to .100. This would be the set up position with nominal material. Keep in mind that the press may back up slightly and a final adjustment may need to be made.
