Enter jacket diameter (inches):
ET-2-S jacket trim die cuts jackets to length in the S-Press. Adjustable length, specific diameter (specify). The jacket trim external punch is a conical shape which pinches the jacket against the edge of the die to deeply score it. The portion of the jacket which fits inside the die is the remaining length. It is adjustable by the setting of a stop nut on the internal punch. The scored portion of the jacket can be twisted or pulled off, or with precise adjustment it may simply fall off depending on the thickness and toughness of the jacket material.

Over time, the design of the external trim punch has evolved. Earlier punches had a long taper without a guide or pilot tip. This evolved to a punch with a pilot tip, which then evolved with further years of testing to a sharper conical punch without a tip projection. The current design can use the same external punch for almost any caliber of jacket, and will make a better score in a wider range of materials.

The ET-2-S can be converted to an ET-2-H by adding an adapter kit. The same kit can then be used with any caliber of ET-2-S, so that all your calibers of trim dies can be the -S type, converted to use in the CSP-2 or CHP-1 press with the same kit.
