Stimpson 488 Electric Powered Eyelet / Grommet Table Top Setting Machine


The Stimpson 488 electric powered eyelet / grommet setting machine was designed to auto feed and set eyelets and grommets with a hole diameter of ½ inch or less. The Stimpson 488 machine is a heavy duty, precision built, versatile bench machine that was produced in two configurations. The first is a standard single action model used when your material is pre-punched and a 2 revolution model which first punches a hole and sets the eyelet or grommet on the second revolution.   Like all auto feed eyelet machines, the Stimpson 488 machine is capable of setting one diameter eyelet or grommet only.  The machine has a throat depth of 5 inches.
