Parallel hole punch plier

Hole punch plier!

These are great for creating a sawblade hole for piercing, or holes for jump rings or other cold connections including rivets. The hole created is 1.5mm, just smaller than a 14g wire, and is pretty clean. Very minimal cleanup required when using for purposes other than sawblade holes. They can be used on silver and copper through 18g, brass through 20g. Maximum depth of the jaws is one inch. Super useful tool if you don’t have a flexshaft, but even if you do, this can be faster. Next week I’ll show you the tool we like for enlarging holes, goes great with the parallel hole punch plier for 14g rivet holes.
