In case somebody does not know this, the 1/2" conduit punch actually cuts a 7/8" hole. This is perfect for soldering/welding 1/2" couplings using the keg tool, and it is also the correct size for 22mm switches and pilot lights. 7/8" = 22.2mm. It opens up new possibilities for getting a punch that will work for us. I got a 1/2" conduit punch, but I will have lots of uses for it in the foreseeable future.

Interesting timing on this post - I just came to that exact realization no more than 5 minutes ago.

Does anyone have a feel for the best method to cut all those 22mm switch and pilot light holes? Punch, hole saw, or step-bit?

In my experience, each and every one of the very few things I've purchased from Harbor Freight has been C-R-A-P CRAP! Reading the customer reviews, this item seems to be no exception.

You can buy the real Greenlee product on Amazon for about $65, or often a bit less on ebay.

I'll have one to lend in a few days, it's a 1-1/4" Greenlee. See my thread about it for details.
