Have You Seen My Tool 005 – Chassis Punches

The intent of the video series titled "Have You Seen My Tool" is to provide a review for new tools and also expose tools traditionally used in one field and reveal how they may be used by others. This week’s tool is chassis punches, a better way to put large holes in thin material.

Nope. Tried your link and searching "defenderchassis", "defender-chassis",and "Defender-Chassis". No go.

Edit; PS; I'll delete my posts to clean up your thread if you want.

No worries, that is weird though. I have no idea what is going on. It is a business page so everybody should be able to see it. In fact, I got a new like just today from a guy in Texas that I have no connection with.

You're right about the capacity of the chassis punches with a 3/8" bolt, pretty sure it's 16 gauge steel.

The conduit size punches, and chassis punches with a 3/4" bolt are good for either 10 or 12 gauge. I have an 1-1/2" just like the ones in your video (square headed 3/8" draw bolt), and a 1-5/8" with a 3/4" bolt. The trouble with that one is now you have to drill a 3/4" hole to use it, which takes away from the convenience factor.

Since I came up with a lever press I've been buying punch tooling for that. Gotta love being able to punch holes as fast as you can pull the lever...

Nice videos!

I got tired of using the hole saws, but still do at times.
I started using this:
http://www.harborfreight.com/hydraul...kit-96718.html

It is conduit size but have been able to center my tube size dies. I use the punch ram to also dimple after the hole is punched.

This is 1/8" and was too big for the press

SWAG Offroad manufactures a set of dimple dies that work with the HF knockout punch set...
