Default Scored some Greenlee punches

I just want to brag a little. I know ya'll will appreciate this.

I went to Canton (giant flea market) with my wife and in-laws yesterday. While my wife and mother in-law looked at furniture and girly stuff, my father in-law and I looked at tools and other cool stuff. I told him to keep an eye out for hole punches. We found a couple, but they were a little high on price for the condition they were in so I passed. I'm pretty frugal, so I figured I'd just stick with my Harbor Freight step bits. When we got back to my in-law's house, my father in-law went out to his shed and dug up a whole set of Greenlee punches! He said they were handed down to him, but he never really knew what they were. Talk about luck!

Nice, just remember that they are conduit size not chassis size punches

Edit: at least thats what greenlee 735's are maybe you got more.

Yep. 1/2 conduit is the 7/8" hole he needs for that weldless bulkhead.

I tested the 1/2" on a piece of scrap I had. It went through it like butter, and the weldless bulkhead fit great.
