Flame Inspiration

Sometimes the simple tools are the best.

My personal fav hole puncher is the good old screw punch. Did you know that the small side of the screw punch is the perfect size to make 14 gauge wire rivets?
Another customer fav is the Euro punch:

If you really want to put some might behind your punching go for the Euro Tool Power Punch. I like this tool because it make larger hole with ease.

A video I just had to share

I was looking around on You-Tube and ran across this great video on making a ring out of a quarter.    It came by way of the video I have posted on the Swanstrom disc cutter and positioning plugs to make a washer. One Video led to another. So much cool information out there. I just had to share.
