Product Description

Product Description

The Starrett S248 set includes five extended length drive pin punches with an 8" overall length, 3-1/2" long pin, and 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", and 3/8" pin diameter sizes to push pins and rivets into or out of a workpiece. The extra-long drive pin section provides greater reach in recessed areas, which makes it suitable for machine shop and motor service work. Each punch is made from hardened and tempered steel, which provides wear resistance and strength. The round shanks are knurled for grip.

Pin punches are used to insert or knock out rivets and pins in assemblies. They have a metal shank on one end and a metal pin driver on the other, and are typically tapped with a hammer.

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.

I work in a factory as a mechanic, and I hear all the time that punches do not matter, buy whatevers cheapest, blah blah. But I can tell you, the ones I bought from Lowes bent, broke, or chipped in the few days I waited for these! and this is not by any stretch harsh usage. I have been in maintenance for 7 years, and only had a couple of the smallest starrett punches break on me, which is understandable. Do yourself a favor, and invest in products that will last you years instead of weeks, I mean, is it really cheaper if your buying them over and over again?

I worked in a racing engine machine shop and we used Starrett products for very precise measurements. I personally own Starrett mics, calipers, bore gauges and dial indicators of all kinds. I'm not bragging just letting you know my history with their products from waaaaay back and have always been very pleased. So I needed a drive pin punch set for my AR build so naturally I went with Starrett. Never been happier. Love em!!!

I bought these as a tool kit for gunsmithing and other uses, these things are excellent way more than i need for the gunsmithing, i'll be suprised if i ever have to use anything but the smallest when it comes to guns but as a automotive or general punch these things are top quality and will definatly last for years of abuse

I am restoring old wooden sash windows. Sometimes I have to dowel them, and for the upper rails, where the dowel is countesunk into the sash-rope channel, you need a good punch to get into that channel. Works awesomely! These feel great in your hands... a true pro's tool.

The punches are of very good quality. I gave this set 3 stars because it doesn't come with the pouch shown. When I read through the product description I saw no mention that the pouch was not included. I am good with the fact that the pouch doesn't come with the punches but , other buyers may want a pouch since they see it in the picture. I have owned Starrett punches for many years and have never had an issue with their quality. These are very good punches , just don't expect a pouch.

Starrett tools are tops. These punches are replacing a set I've had since the 70's. While the tools are excellent, frankly I'm tired of the scam nonsense of amazon sellers whose pictures don't represent the actual product in this case the pouch. The distance between amazon and ebay gets closer everyday.

Like all the other reviewers....solid product. I bought three sets in total (two steel and one brass). One came with a plastic case, the other a very nice nylon case and these in a box individually wrapped in paper. Wish they were a little more consistent with their sets and cases. Given they're not cheap, a nice nylon case for each would have been much better and really helps keep them protected.
