High quality, reliable construction.Adjustable Striking Force
Turn the knob clockwise for a heavier striking force (counter-clockwise for lighter).Carbide Tip — Better Penetration
Carbide is a harder material than stainless steel. This results in a longer lasting tool than can more easily penetrate steel.
Why we like this one: We're committed to only supply tools that reflect our own standards in reliability. So, we looked to Japan who are known for exemplary manufacturing and quality control. That came at a cost. From our experience, the quality in the low cost variety is hit or miss. But, we understand if you're looking for a more inexpensive option depending on your expectations and use. We recommend checking your local hardware store or utilizing an online marketplace(paid).
What is an Automatic Center Punch?
An automatic center punch is a spring-loaded tool commonly used in machining and woodworking to create a starter hole or dimple that guides a drill bit.
Pressure is applied by pressing down on the handle which compresses the spring inside. At a certain point while applying increasing pressure on the handle, the spring will release the sharp pointed tip and pierce the contacting surface. This will create a small hole.
The design of a center punch has not changed very much and is quite optimized for its intended purpose. That is why all of them look very similar if not identical. A good center punch really comes down its construction and quality.
