Ironworker Die Shoe and Punch Holder:

This is a fabricated dieshoe off an old Hendly and Whitmore ironworker. It has a flat cut on one side so that holes could be punched in angle iron.

The punch and punch holder are typical of the type used on ironworkers. These have both been adapted to fit a 4 ton Benchmaster punch press.
