I suggest that you comb out-of-the-way hardware stores for older production US made punches that are collecting dust on the shelf. It may cost more, but this Indian made punch was a waste of money. I used this punch once, then the tip fell off between jobsites, never to be found again. While I was smart enough to buy a replacement tip at the same time, it doesn't fit. The screw thread size has been changed. The Indian made punch uses a smaller thread than the US made punch. Now I have a $28 punch and an $7 tip that don't go together.That was a very expensive hole.
Obviously since I own a bench grinder this is an easy task but I'll be removing 1/8" or so of a non replaceable tip. I think it should have stood up to a lot more abuse.
All that said an automatic center punch is one of the most convenient tools you can own, if you're considering your first, even if you don't buy this one, buy one.
