Default Dimpling pliers

I'm looking for a dimpling pliers, it puts a dimple in the metal to lock end caps, the connecting rolled lock seam edge on wallstack and wallstack fittings, and some other seams.

I was looking around more and found that Roper Whitney
makes one, It's called a #9 button lock- dimpler but it's huge, I would like a smaller one. The thickest metal I would use it for is 24 gauge.
If I can't find one I may make one out of a small Roper Whitney punch.
