Default Nice Price on 1 1/4" Greenlee Chassis Punch $59 New

I decided to pick up a greenlee punch for the new keggle I'm putting together. While many methods work, drilling out a 1.25" hole with a step bit can be a PITA. I need a new bit, too. So hopefully this will be a good solution.

Check out THIS LINK

I thought the price was good and shipping only added $6.50.

I was looking at sets on ebay, but couldn't find the Chassis punches, only the conduit ones. Hope it helps someone out.

I'd like to know why the square punches are crazy expensive...
$400 + for a punch?

Made to punch radio chassis and 16 gage mild steel. Let us know how it works on that stainless keg!

I punched two holes in a keg with this punch today. Worked great took about 30 seconds of ratcheting per hole. The draw stud showed a bit of wear after two holes, so that may not last forever.

But wow. I mean, about 1/50th the effort of the step bit.

Your link directs to a replacement punch part. It seems that this is what you would actually need:

I assume it was just much cheaper when you bought it?
