    I need to procure some #2 self-piercing grommets (we have Stimpson machines) to use in 3/16" foamcore mainly. We seem to be doing a lot of these, and the standard ones end up crushing the material too much. I know they make them......problem is no one seems to sell them. Anyone have any leads?

    We use Hiker and they offer a Medium (3-7mm) and Long (6-10mm) Barrel... Does Stimpson have longer barrels?

    I ask only because we bought our Hiker at the time when none of the other machine vendors had long barrels.

    Thanks....I looked there and didn't see them. Now I do. And CRAP they are 3 times what standard ones cost.

    Can you switch to hiker? The medium and long barrels are only $0.015/ea more.
