Other then the fact that this "automatic metal home punch" is very light in the hand and easy to hold, it really doesn't have much else going for it.
For starters, the tip -- though it comes with a thick gel like cover-- isn't all that that sharp.
Secondly, to even get the tool to work you have to apply an enormous amount of pressure to the spring loaded handle and even then all you get is an indented pock mark in your piece of metal. I used this item on a 22 gauge piece of aluminum and I had to repeat the action nearly two dozen times before just a tiny opening of a hole was poked through the other side. I finally took an eyeglass screwdriver and eventually widened the hole enough to string through a piece of waxy hemp cord. I have since placed my project on hold until I can purchase a better metal hole punch, because A.) my project is too large for me to continue on this way and B.) the hole is not uniform and looks very poor and jagged which has resulted in a wasted piece of metal; and also because of the final reason...
Thirdly, the spring loaded mechanism on the inside of the handle broke due to the four or five dozen times I had to tamp it down in an attempt to work on my project. I think that is pretty poor quality for an item that is already in the trash can the same day I had just received in the mail. I find it to be a true waste of $8.00.
Unless I wasn't operating the hole punch correctly; however, I fail to see how such a simple object could either be used any other way or even how a person could possibly incorrectly. I find that idea to be right next to impossible.
I will not purchase this particular product (or even anything by this brand) again.
I DO NOT recommend this product as a wise purchase; it will only cause you to become very aggravated at the undesired outcome on your project and it will waste your materials.
