Re: [BKARTS] Japanese punch drill



Dorothy is right...they dull rather quickly & the bits aren't cheap
-around $13.00 each retail. Oh, and dropping them...is thus costly -I
love it though. Since I generally make one-of-a-kind books, it's perfect
for me.

    Some of the problems people have reported about these drills have
clearly arisen from confusion on the part of the purchaser.  These
Japanese punches should not be mistaken for paper drills, which are the
proper tools to use for thick stacks of heavy paper.  The hand punches
are wonderful for precision hand work, but will dull quickly if used for
heavy production work for which they are not suitable.
