Frequently Bought Together
The Starrett SB565Z is an eight-piece brass drive pin punch set to drive pins into or out of a work piece. The set is in a fabric case, and includes pin punches with the following diameters: 1/16", 3/32", 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 7/32", 1/4", and 5/16". Each pin punch is made from brass, for use with surfaces that could be damaged by harder steel punches. Pin punches are used to place or knock out loosened pins and rivets from workpieces, where they are frequently used to attach something to a rotating shaft. They have a cylindrical body to hold and drive the smaller diameter, flat-ended tip into the workpiece.
The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company was founded in 1880 and is headquartered in Athol, MA.

The shafts are very nicely knurled and the punch tips are precisely squared off and sturdy. Punches feel nice in the hand and work well. You'd have to break a sweat to hurt one of these, I can see. I've bent my share of HF punches but that's not saying much.
The cordura flat case doesn't really blow my hair back like the upright plastic holder that the steel version of these punches comes in since I work at a bench, but you can't have it all I guess. Someday I'd like to get the same plastic case for these as the steel set comes with, much easier to grab and move around on a bench and see what you're doing when selecting sizes.
Overall, these are well worth the money for good tools. Buy once, cry once. Life's too short to drink cheap booze or buy cheap tools as my buddy Matt with Eight Fingers always says.
The reason you use brass punches is because brass is softer than steel and won't mar a steel finish. If you have a stuck steel pin, use some other method to remove it.
Also, if you do bend or deform these punches, they are very easily reformed with a vice and a little bit of filing or emery cloth.
They are not cheap for sure. The fabric case is of really nice construction the pins themselves look & feel great ( although my 1/16th did arrive with a slight bend in it ? at $45 this is unacceptable ). I also own the Wheeler Brass Punch Set 780194 which compliments this set well ( and at a LOT less money ) between the two they make a pretty complete set for small pins . What the Wheeler set lacks, the Starrett set has.
The Starrett set has 1/16", 3/32", 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 7/32", 1/4", and 5/16" which gives you two smaller punches.
The Wheeler set has 1/8", 9/64", 5/32", 3/16", 7/32", 1/4", 9/32" and 5/16" gives you the 9/64" and the 9/32"
so form 5/32" up I have doubles but when do you ever have enough tools lol I'll probably just put the larger Wheeler punches with my "garage set" an put the smaller Wheelers in the case with the Starrett punches to save space.
Only hope paying this much more for the American made punches keeps someone working, would I buy them again if I had not forgotten I picked up the Wheeler set before I ordered these? probably not. The 1/16" and 3/32" are good to have but not really worth the difference in price.
Two stars off for the bent 1/16" punch - and it WAS SENT out bent - there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY IT WAS BENT IN SHIPPING the way these are packed - which worries me about the " Starrett quality " these days.

Classic Starrett quality and precision. A necessary when working on precision equipment so as not to damage items.Published 2 months ago by MrShay
Very nice set. The only reason I am knocking off one star is that the pouch that the punches are packed in is full of brass shavings. They literally go everywhere. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Andy N
