3. Hand-held method. Proceed as follows:
a. Place selected chuck (figure 1, item 1) in open end of holder (figure 1, item 2) and secure chuck
in place using locking screw (figure 1, item 3) located on one side of holder (figure 1, item 2).
Then place the die (figure 1, item 4) into anvil (figure 1, item 5).
In most instances, a chuck will be installed in the hand held holder and a die will be
placed in the anvil. However, there may be some occasions that require the location of
the chuck and die to be reversed. This situation may also apply to the hand or foot
b. Fit socket or stud (figure 1, item 6), as applicable, on chuck (figure 1, item 1) lower end. Place
