The Metal Complex Tool Section has just expanded! Let me introduce you to the new metal punches! (one of four not shown) They are made of carbon steel and the ergonomically designed handle is crafted for durability and comfort.
Each plier comes with an extra set of tips. In my mind, it is these tips that make these punches so effective. The angle on the cutting tip goes through metal as though it was paper.
All you do is hold the plier horizontally and with your hand pressure you will punch through the metal.
I have a metal punch from a competitor and I always had to apply a lot more pressure to make my hole. It often bent my metal blank. With these new pliers I had to remind myself NOT to apply as much force….the holes were made so easily.
There is a square punch – it makes these cool 1.5 mm shaped punches.
There is a 1.7 oval! Isn’t this shape fantastic?
Finally, there are two circle punches 1.25 and 1.8 mm.
These tools easily punch through copper, silver and brass 24 gauge metal. Each Metal Complex Punch Pro comes with an extra pin set, so it you do a lot of punching and wear out your shaped tips, you can replace them. You can even buy the extra tips individually packed. My samples were made using Metal Complex copper blanks. Have you seen the dozens of shapes and sizes in the metal blank section? The choices are endless.
To make my samples, I simply held my pliers horizontally and applied pressure to punch my hole. It was very easy. The back of the blank was virtually clean, but I will take a little sander to the back to make sure their are no metal burs.
