By the way, the dimples I see in your photo are improperly done. You need to adust your squeezer to apply more force in forming the dimples so that they are crisp and do not distort the skin around them.

This can be achieved by either increasing or or decreasing the squeezer stroke position to optimize the force. Try it on scrap.

Please get this right or you will regret it later on. See debate on countersinking elsewhere on VAF.
