    I believe I shall echo this sentiment, loud and clear!:roll:

    Any one have one yet???
    Please share with us, any info you can offer!
    Give us a report, preferably with pics, of course!:twisted:

    Does it remove the same size hole it advertises?
    Does it do a clean job of it?
    Easy to use and blades seem to go on for ever???( i know):roll:
    Waste of every penny???
    Is ok, but I think ++++++ works better.
    Where do you get ++++++?

    I could go on but you get the idea..
    I just want to know everything!:roll:

    I've got one of those rotary leather punch plier thingies, which is very powerful and has 6 alternate punch sizes, but of course you can only reach as far as the opening of the jaws. The huge advantage of this new tool is that you can punch holes anywhere on the sheet.

    Waiting for the postman,

    I'll do a thorough test when it arrives (3 - 14 days according to seller) and post the results here.

    ... isn't it obvious how to punch a hole anywhere in a sheet with a rotary leather punch ?

    I guess one could always cut out the circle with a small border then use the rotary punch.
    The screw punch spins the cutting bit though where the rotary does not. I think you will get a much cleaner hole with a screw punch. Plus you won't have double the work.

    This will be the only clue you are allowed. :)

    Using it this way you can screw around with it as much as you like whilst pressing.
    (I take no responsibility for the reader's mind at that point :twisted:)

    Curses! Foiled Again

    Would you Adam and Eve it? The guy sells from Hong Kong, but won't ship to Hong Kong! I was going get the jump on you and be the first to give a report on it. Now I can't even get one!:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: /Stomps around room and kicks over potted plant/

    Ah well, at least I got the picture. I can go to Apliu Street (where we buy our tools) and show it too them. If you ask for a screw punch, they just look at you with a blamk expression.:roll:

    Hole Punch

    Hi guys, mine arrived today. Box was flat packed and the bits are in a small plastic container, all in a padded envelope.I have given it a quick go in my lunch hour and the results look great. It easily makes perfect holes in 80gsm, 128gsm, 160gsm and 1mm card.It does not require much pressure at all and gives very good results in my opinion. Pleas note this is the first time I have used a tool like this and it is vastly better than trying to cut small holes with the plier type punch or a knife:grin: :grin: What a fantastic bargain :twisted Tanks again for the heads up:) p.s. 5 days from Hong Kong to the UK, not bad at all

    Thanks for the report smyfe!
    I still couldn't wait and already have one on the way!
    I was a little leary of it but I'm glad I didn't wait now.
