New Review: Medium Punch and Die Set PT8 – Round

Recommended Posts

Another beautifully crafted tool from our friends at UMM-USA is this new punch and die set, accompanying the numerous other tools used to punch standard shapes out of thin brass or aluminum, or plastic sheet stock up to 0.080 (2mm) thick.  In the set you'll find an aluminum die block with hole sizes ranging from 0.6 mm (0.024") up to 3.0mm (0.12") diameter, accompanied by the hardened tool steel punches of corresponding size.

If, like me, you've tried slicing round stock to make buttons, access covers, hatches and the like, and never managed to get parallel surfaces, you'll welcome this fine tool.  It's great for adding subtle detail, for creating instrument glass, access panels, fastener heads, and the like.

Our thanks go out again to UMM-USA and John Vojtech for his generous support to the review team here.
