    cutting small disks and other things

    Thanks to all with your suggestions. I have 3 different size paper punches and none of them are the right size for my current project. So to help these tired old eyes I have to get up close and personal while cutting and use plenty of light. I borrowed my wife's clip on book light and placed it real close to the subject I'm cutting. Thought maybe some could use this idea and you need better light.

    I use the standard hole punchers....ideal for making rivets (1mm) and the cuts are very nice. I have them in sizes up to 12mm with 1mm gap.

    Johnny, That's a very nice set of punches. Where did you purchase them? I wonder if they are available here in the States? John

    I bought mine from Moduni, but I'm sure you can get them over there also :)

    Johnny,

    I bought those a while back but many were dull, and I'm not very good at sharpening them. Hopefully your set was sharpened before you received them.

    Yes they are really sharp, and I have used them a lot especially the 1-2-3mm and they are still as good as new!
