I'm liking it more and more!

Handy grommet punch. I have plenty of grommet setup installers. From bench to hand held but none of my dies are for "self piercing" groms. So I got this for my collection. The bad, the head is off center but when you squeeze it it pulls it on center. The spot weld that holds this alongment is so tiny that I will either wait until this weld breaks or just cut the weld then re weld IN PLACE to align it. I wish at least one side of the head would have been magnetic (I'm not sure I can msg. The head myself, but will try). The "squeeze" facter is high so it might impact tight spot use. I'll keep it , if nothing else you get 500 pelf piercing nic-plated grommets. These alone are the price of this deal... the tool is just a bonus. So the tool is the ADD on part of this deal.
***UPDATE*** I apologize about the head not being magnetic it is and holds the furnished groms very good. The dies are wearing smoother but still off center. Over all, did pretty good. On 9mil poly tarp I did get some puckering
2nd UPDATE... I've been using for awhile now and am thinking of a second batch of these "self piercing" grommets. I've started using the 1" wide "two sided tape" for FOLDING my edges on my tarps and that has ELIMINATED ALMOST ALL of the puckering! I'm really starting to Ike thiS grommet installer over my other hand grommet setters.
