We will cover repairing your machine when you have accidentally tried to clamp two domes at once in a later post, but today we will discuss how to stop it happening in the first place.

It’s a very simple technique to learn and will save you either hours of frustration or an expensive trip to the badge repair shop.

Before placing the dome in the die, hold it on its side and drop it lightly onto your work surface, if there are two domes, they will drop apart due to the sudden shock of hitting the work surface.

If you develop this good habit it may save your time & money!
