Q-Max Circular Sheet Metal Punches

<p>Hand-operated sheet metal punches, providing the easiest and quickest way of punching holes in sheet metal up to 16 gauge mild steel.</p>
  • Punching operation is performed by simply assembling the punch into a pilot hole and tightening with an allen key
  • Punches can be used anywhere – no electrical or compressed air supply is required
  • Ideal for cutting holes for switches, chassis sockets, electrical boxes, panel meters, pipework, large cables/looms, etc.
  • Suitable allen keys are available separately, please see Technical Specification
  • Optional thrust races (bearings) are recommended for use with the larger sizes (above 31mm/1in) to reduce the operating torque
