Lift Holes

These are not just for lifting the mold into the press. The toolmaker needs to have lift holes in every plate so the mold plates can be handled safely when disassembled. Holes need to be located in such a manner that the mold will be as level as possible when it is being lifted into the press. It is wise to use the safety hoist style eyehooks rather than the eyebolt. The eye bolts will bend and the tensile strength is much higher.
