Welcome to the latest episode of Stimpson®’s Digital Workshop Series. In this episode, Keith Gentilin, Stimpson’s Director of Sales & Marketing, introduces viewers to the Stimpson 405 Bench Press Starter Kit with #2 self-piercing grommets & washers. This press is a staple among many industries, including signs & banners, marine applications, apparel, tents, awnings, and prototyping, because of its reliability, versatility, and ease of use. With the ability to cut a hole in the material and set a self-piercing grommet & washer in one pass, the 405 has remained the press of choice for fastening professionals since its first iteration over 100 years ago. While its operation is manual, the quality of work it produces rivals that of large automatic machines.

The Stimpson 405 Bench Press Starter Kit is available with different size self-piercing grommets & washers that include #0, #1, #2, and #3. Each starter kit contains everything you need to start setting self-piercing grommets & washers immediately.
