Micro Punch Set is Ideal for Making Miniature Gauges, Lenses, Washers, Gaskets and More!


Toolmaker-grade micro punch set makes perfect miniature disks from plastic, wood veneer, cloth -- even metal! And it punches tiny holes in materials virtually impossible to drill: thin metal sheet, cork, rubber, vinyl, and more. Use it on pre-printed paper gauge-faces and clear acetate sheet to create the most realistic miniature instrument panels you've ever seen. Also makes custom size washers and miniature gaskets. Easy to use: Just place the material between the clear guide plate and the perfectly matched hardened steel die, then insert the punch and tap through. Includes 9 precisely ground and hardened steel punches ranging from 1.0 mm (0.039 inch) to 5.0 mm (0.197 inch) diameter in 0.5 mm (0.0197 inch) increments. Approx. overall size: 1-1/4 inches x 2-5/8 inches.

A must for any scratch-builder!

I'll admit, the price seemed high, which put me off from buying this sooner. I wish I'd given in years ago! This little unit is fantastic, and I can't tell you how many times I've used it. In my humble opinion, it is a must for any scratch-builder. I've used it to cut brass sheet, card and mainly plastic.
<br>
<br>Note: The thicker the plastic you cut, the more of a 'dome-shaped' piece you will get. Sometimes, this works out for you.

<br>All I can say is that I wish I'd had this little baby years ago!

Are there directions for this?

by -

This works pretty well but unfortunately I am at this point unable to determine which side is the sharp side designed to cut through the sheet and which side is the part to hammer. I usually save directions so I may have misplaced them but I don't think so.************************************************Micro-Mark Update: Just place the material between the clear guide plate and the perfectly matched hardened steel die, then insert the punch and tap through.
