I brought this thing hoping it would be better than my screw down punch.. and I really don't care for it. I am always pinching myself or marring the metal. However on the plus side it punches larger holes.
I so love this BABY! if you have plans to use the variety of hole sizes this is the tool for you. I own a screw down punch and no longer use it. To avoid marring metal slowly open after punching metal,I do this and no damage to the metal. I like this tool so much and have used it numerous times. this is simple to use i really didnt have to keep looking at instructions its pretty easy to use. and its way smaller than i thought itd be! love that it comes in its own case.
I love, love, love my new power punch pliers! Now I can easily add crystal snap rivets to my pieces. I use 18 gauge aluminum to make prototypes of my silver designs, and these pliers punch through it like paper. This is a well made product and worth every penny if you need to punch larger holes in thicker gauge metal.
I'm so pleased with the power punch! I weighed up the pro's and cons of having a number of single size hand punches against the one multi size power punch, and the power punch just has so much going for it; not only do you get the choice of SEVEN hole sizes, but there's a reach of 1.75",loads of strength in the tool and the holes are perfectly clean.
As Cathy McGowan would say:"I'll give it five!"
I love this punch. It does take some getting used to to handle it efficiently. I use it for jewelry blanks but also for punching larger pieces of metal for artwork. It's great that it can in the middle of the larger pieces of metal.
