I suppose you could always try to fit your holepunch size of choice into a
Dremel or drill press. The hole punches should fit into a Dremel chuck. I
know they'll work in a regular drill. Should work, though you might have to
empty it out on occasion. You also won't be able to drill through too many
leaves / sections either due to the short length and shape of the punch.
Just make sure it's sharp.
