I make alcohol burning cook stoves. Most I give away; but a friend sells some of them on eBay.
Before I could use this punch for my purposes; I had to heavily modify it.
First I used needle nosed pliers and obliterated the paper guide so I could get the punch over the rim of the can si I could punch the jets for the stove.
Second I used a screw driver to pop off the basket that catches the little pieces of aluminum because I needed to see exactly the jet locations.
Those two things went fine, and the punch makes nice smooth holes.
So why give the punch only four stars? Two reasons.
1. The cushioned handles. I have no idea what the cushion grips are made of, but I can hardly wait for the cushion grips to fall off; in fact I am tempted to cut them off because the word Fuskars embossed in the handle, and the non slip texture could easily cause blisters if you have to make a lot of holes.
2. The punch is too short and the small disc often sticks inside the base and you have to use a toothpick or similar to pop out the disc so you can see to punch the next disc. If the punch was 1/32 of an inch or 1 millimeter longer thhe punch would completely pass through the base this problem would be solved.
A week or so ago I saw a much better-looking 1/8-inch punch that gets even better (although lots fewer) reviews than this one does, at around twice the price (but still under $10), so I ordered one. It's the EK Tools Heavy Duty Punch, 1/8-Inch Circle. It has hefty, beautifully designed and manufactured painted cast-aluminum handles. It looks and feels like a much better tool than this one, but it cannot punch a clean hole in anything.
The handles are great but the punch is sloppy, with far too much clearance between the punch and its mating hole, so some of the material you're trying to punch (even thin paper) gets pinched between them rather than cut. I returned the first pair, but the replacement was just as bad, so I gave up on it and came back to this one, which looks and feels cheap but does its job perfectly.
(I noticed that Martha Stewart is selling that EK Tools punch under her own brand name at a 50% higher price, which proves again that she's into looks more than performance--but into making a buck more than anything.)
The flap that holds the chads fell off immediately and got lost, but I don't use it anyway.
