The unique process that Durable Dependable Tools uses to make die boards results in exceptionally flat die boards that possess superior rule holding, a critical consideration for die board longevity and performance.
A side view of the cut die board shows a kerf resembling a diamond shape with straight parallel ends. These parallel ends provide a much larger contact area between the wood and the steel rule.
A laser burned die board results in a kerf that ‘burns wide’ on the other side of the board. This beveled kerf can adversely affect the integrity of the rule position resulting in more re-rules.
