By Mark Rosen on March 24, 2012
I used the expensive version (On Mark) of this for a while before I bought my own Flexbar. These are great tools, but you do get what you pay for.

The Flexbar works well for me and is pretty precise. The On-Mark is visually more accurate. If you can afford it, get that. Optics are noticeably better (I compared them side by side) and the punch may be higher grade steel. That said, I am not disappointed with the Flexbar because it's so, so useful and within my budget.
If I ever do buy the on-mark, I'll give this one to my brother (who's always a little envious of my machining).

Replaces one from Veritas that Ioaned out and never got it back. There aren't and directions included, but it works the same as the old one. There are two viewers and two punches and not clue as to which does metal and which does wood/softer items.

Overall, this is a great way to get much more accuracy when center punching.

Easy to line up, easy to get a starter punch mark. Then deepen with a regular center punch if required.

Flexbar has great customer service. One of the optical punches was defective and they sent me a replacement free of charge with no hassle.

Every shop or garage should have at least one - or more.

Helpful tool when prepping sheetmetal layouts for holes and other cut-outs.

A well designed accurate tool.

I am very glad to see the back of my previous spring loaded punch.
