Hello,
I am looking for an alternative to the 'hammer/tap and die' indutrial snap setting method.  I've had nothing but smooshed snaps, and ineffective snaps, and just plain old bad luck.  I also need to do alot of them...  so hammering, will probably annoy my housemates.

I'd love to know if anyone knows of or has found a light commercial snap setter? or even one of those vice-grip-like snap setters, for industrial/heavy duty snaps.

Any hints, tricks, tips, ideas?

I have (had?) several lighter duty ones... but they don't seem to accomodate the industrial variety of snaps.  Good to know that it exists... maybe I need to google for upholstery suppliers...
