I am conflicted about telling you my secret...<br><br>
I don't own a snap press, but I set resin snaps all the time...<br><br>
...<br><br>
I use a drill press. The dies just fit right into the chuck, you use a vice to hold the bottom die, and voila!<br><br>
So if you or your hubby has a drill press, you just have to buy the dies (~$48?) and snaps.<br><br>

I e-mailed my dad about Lindsay's nifty idea, and he also recommended an Arbor Press from Harbor Freight ($30 on sale), which I'd already seen someone mention on MDC before. :LOL He also has another tool in his garage that might work, and I'll get to see it Friday. I'll let ya'll know how that goes. I really like the idea of spending $28 (+ $3.29 shipping) instead of $90 (+ $15 shipping). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Especially since I'll mainly be making diapers for myself and friends (might sell some if I get good enough, but I'm a ways off from that yet!!! and I don't know when I'd get the TIME anyway). I can do Touch Tape as I've been doing, but I really like snaps better, plus I like AI2s with snap-in soakers.

Do any of the dies fit the drill press? Sorry if that is a stupid question, I just don't want to order them and not have them fit.

I know OSDS's listing says what size the dies are. So you could compare that to your drill press to be sure.
