K&D 600 Staking Tool...HELP! "Click" to Login or Register 
posted
Guys/Gals:
I'm a new member and seek some advise. I just purchased a K&D 600 Staking Tool from Ebay. It was not properly wrapped and the set looks like pickup sticks. Is their a diagram on how these tools are to be properly organized? It's a mess. Any guidance is much appreciated!

Greg, this is a schematic of the layout of a K & D staking set layout, not sure if its the one you have or not. Hope this helps you out.

Greg, I don't know why it wouldn't enlarge after I saved it to my desktop and sent it in the above post.

Thanks for the help and quick response. I got them in numerical order last night, but knew there had to be a more logical sequence to getting "Humpy Dumpty" back together again!

Welcome Gregory, Thanks to "Curly' for supplying the layout and to you Richard for publishing this larger size. I am sure it will come in handy for years to come.

I am linking this post to the watch repair forum.

Good Day!

The stakes were arranged in a such way to allow use of K&D numbering. K&D has numbered flat face hole punches from 44 to 73 and round face hole punches from 74 to 103, exactly 30 difference.

Now I have placed flat faced punches on the left hand side and round face punches on the right hand side, following the same sequence. Thus allowing me to visually select the same size punches without having to read their numbers every time I wanted one.

Also I sized the list to fit in the inside of staking tool cover so that I can easily see the sizes in millimetres of all the punches.

Sounds complicated while in practices it is very simple.

Here are the images of both my staking set and the arrangement I thought to be to my advantage.

The staking set shown above is in a box with different layout, nevertheless, the same philosophy can easily be applied to it.

Cheers

Dushan
