Barthel (MN) – This review is from: SE 7924LP Heavy-Duty Leather Hole Punch Tool, 2.0 – 4.5 mm (Tools & Hardware) This is a good leather hole punch. It is made sturdy so you do not have to worry about the handles or head of the punch bending like some of the cheaper models. This works great on belts but if you have some horse tackle, saddel or the like you would like to use it on it may not be the best choice since they have thicker leather than a belt usually. The only down side to this leather punch is that there is a small black bracket that holds the punch wheel in place while you punch a hole in your leather. Well, this is a soft metal so it bends if you punch into heavy leather. If this was a solid latch instead of sheet metal it would be an awesome leather punch. Good news is the latch has a screw that lets you remove it and bend it back into shape but my guess is this will break eventually if you use it a lot. If this bracket is bent they you do not get a clean hole cut into your leather. The thicker your leather the greather chance this will happen. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 121 of 126 people found the following review helpful Packs a Punch, July 24, 2008 By Annabelle Jones “Belle” (Frederick, Maryland United States) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) Having several belts, etc. that needed an extra hole (or two!) I did some on-line research to identify something that could do the trick, without costing a (w)hole lot of cash – since this is a gadget that won’t be in daily use. I looked at several punches, and read the varying reviews on them; but in the end I selected this “PROFESSIONAL” puncher. I’m glad I did. It does a very good job, although you may need to use some extra exertion/punch to pierce through a thick leather belt. The punch is solidly made, easy to use, and has a good selection of various-sized punch holes. The only negative I could spot is the relatively flimsy safety catch. Otherwise, would I buy it again – definitely. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 82 of 86 people found the following review helpful Terrible hole puncher. Waste of ten bucks., January 12, 2011 By G. MTZ. – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: SE 7924LP Heavy-Duty Leather Hole Punch Tool, 2.0 – 4.5 mm (Tools & Hardware) I bought this just to add some holes on some simple leather belts. I have 2 belts that I wanted to add 2 holes on each belt. First of all, the hole puncher does not make clean holes. I tried using the correct size hole puncher first but noticed it would not cut through. Then I tried using the smallest hole punch size in order to start the hole and then I gradually began using the bigger sizes, until I reached the hole size I wanted to use. The hole puncher in the various of sizes are very dull which makes the cutting of the hole very difficult. I ultimately added the holes I wanted in the 2 belts but it wasn’t pretty in the end. I had to use a sharp cutting knife in order to clean up the hole debris that was left after using the puncher. Also, the hole puncher was not completely aligned with the flat metal head which causes the hole to be slightly offset when punching down on the tool. The red sleeve also came loose on one side while putting slight pressure on the puncher. Lastly, the metal locking mechanism that holds the puncher in place broke off which makes the hole puncher wheel completely loose. I bought this here on Amazon because of the better than average reviews I read here. As for me, I completely disagree with most of the positive reviews for this hole puncher. This tool did not work for my simple needs and it may not work for you too. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
