I am also in Moorsville occasionally at Miller Airpark or on Lake Norman. Lots of builders in the region, several RV's at 8A7 where I'm based.
Bill E. three three six-202-0574.
I am also near by (NC25) and can do the same things as Bill. My RV-6 is flying and I have an RV-8 project. I have almost all the tools that were used to build the RV-6 and purchased additional nice to have tools for the RV-8.
I did buy some ATS dimple dies early on. They are no were near the quality that Cleaveland and or Avery provided. I no longer have them as I found them too soft and they were discarded.
My RV-6 will be 25-years old in September. I have been trying to spend my airplane tool money where it goes back into the RV aircraft community. It may have been about 30-years ago, but Cleaveland Aircraft Tools founder built an award winning RV-4.
