Too soft for steel
1 Sep 2009
By BlueStringSoup

"Very disappointed with these punches.
OK, they are cheap... and they are nicely machined... but they are simply too soft for use on mild steel. It may be that I got a duff batch, but after I had (lightly) punched just half a dozen centres with the 5/32" punch the point had mushroomed sufficiently that I had to re-grind it.
If you're working aluminium or other soft stuff, or you have the facilities to heat treat to harden and temper, these could be OK - but otherwise I'd advise paying more to get a better tool."

Pointless...

"As the previous reviewer has mentioned these are way too soft to be useful. Really you only need to use a centre punch when working on hard metals that a drill bit won't sink straight into, which makes these absolutely useless. I used the middle sized one of the set, and after one hit with a hammer (not very hard I might add) the tip was flat. I tried again with the largest one of the set thinking that this might be tougher, and the same thing happened - flat. i will be returning these as faulty. They look the part, but that's about it."
