Dimple Dies?

Anyone know a good place in the southern San Diego area where I can go to get some 3" holes dimpled (flared) for cheap? Or anyone have a set and a press? It is for a thin piece of aluminum so it won't be anything difficult. Thanks!

There's several write-ups on DIY dies, Harbor Freight used to carry a set, I forgot to look when I was there yesterday

Or, try Bob Bengal in Spring Valley at: Bengals Hot Rods and Off Road Fabrication

Sweet! I did a search online and the cheapest I could find was about $200 for a 3" die. I will have to look at harbor freight and if not give that shop a try. Thanks!
