The Starrett 117E center punch with round shank is 5" long and has a 1/4" (6.5 mm) diameter tapered point. The punch is made from hardened and tempered steel, which provides wear resistance and strength. The round shank is knurled for grip.
Center punches make small dimple marks in a workpiece to help guide a drill bit. Manual center punches have a metal shank with a point and are typically tapped with a ball-peen hammer to mark the material. Automatic center punches have an internal spring mechanism that enables them to mark the material without using a hammer, leaving one hand free for steadying the work.
The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company, founded in 1880, is headquartered in Athol, MA.

The picture on Amazon is deceptive: you will receive one punch, not a set. While I was not deceived, I did take a star off my rating to draw any reader's attention to this un-picture-perfect situation.
This is a great tool. It will be an asset to any metal worker's toolbox.

I love this punch. I use it to mark holes to be punched on hot rolled carbon steel. Hundreds of holes later, it is still super pointy. I've been using a crappy punch for years. Read morePublished on December 24, 2013 by Taylor Stewart
