Lol. No kidding. I used a hole saw and a die grinder. I've made lots of holes in metal metal over the years and I never thought I needed a punch. Must be a homebrewer thing. If you don't buy a Greenlee type of punch and instead buy other tools that will enable you to make holes in metal, you will be able to make many, many other things besides holes. A punch is only good for making holes in thin metal, that's it. Go with the other tools and you will be able to do a lot more stuff.

Reason: typo

I LOVE my Greenlee 7/8ths for making a nice hole for a keg draw tool, and I've got a bigger one coming for welding in my 1" couplers for elements.

I have not had a single problem with them and stainless steel......

I was married for 10 years before my wife knew I drank.
Then one day I made a mistake and came home from work sober
