Making a Pin Button/ a Magnet Button/ a Bottle Opener with Magnet using B400

  1. Place an upper shell onto A mould with the sharp edge facing downward. Place the graphic/design paper on the shell followed by a piece of Mylar. Align the graphic to the vertical pin of the A mould to adjust orientation.
  2. Rotate/swivel the plate to set A mould properly stop by the upper mould. Hold the machine body by one hand and pull down the handle gently till its furthest then release it.
  3. Place a back component onto B mould with the sharp edge facing up. Align the back to the vertical pin of the B mould for proper orientation. When making the metal back pin button, the magnet button, (32/37/44/58/65/75mm), the bottle opener(58/65mm), a washer/gasket is recommended to put onto B mould before the back component goes in.
  4. Repeat step#2 but set B mould instead.
