I am not trying to make any money out of this, if anything in the end I lose money by doing it since I have to pay the shipping to get the stuff back to me.

A greenlee punch is $40, a unibit is $20 - $40, my Porter Cable grinder was $50, the backing pad was $15, not to mention whatever misc cutting/polishing supplies I would have left I would throw in, the bottle of cutting oil for instance. I bought it all new. What will I do with with it when my keggles are finished? Just thought I could help someone out and they wouldn't have to buy everything like I did.

If a rental place even rents a Greenlee punch I don't know what it costs but it can be shipped USPS in a if it fits it ships $5 box.

I was into audio for years and a car forum too and we did stuff like this to help each other out all the time. There are some really nice and helpful folks on this site but the more I am on this site the more convinced I am that the home brewing community is not like other forum communities I have been a part of

So I used the greenlee to put the holes into my 1st keggle, does work amazing, nice clean hole no need to grind off any sharp edges.

Default Count me in...

I'd love to use the punch. I've got three kegs in need of holing (is that a real word??) and a stepped bit still in the package for fear of my screwing it up. To whom do I send the paypal cash?

It'd be me. Give me til the end of next week and I will have all my kegs holed. I will also send the stepped bit I bought to get the pilot hole done (I also had to use it because the sight glasses require a smaller hole than the step bit) and a bottle of cutting oil for using the stepped bit.

Then whoever was first on this thread if they still need it gets and so on. I will post next week when I am done and ready to ship it out to the first person for the pass around.

I have gotten behind on my build since I just moved, I just have my last vessel to finish which I plan on finishing this weekend.

Sorry for the delay guys. Next week I will start contacting folks to start the pass around.

OK guys finally got all my holes punched so who wants the greenlee first?

I will send the greenlee and the bits I bought to make the pilot holes and to use for smaller holes like sight glasses.

I might want to be the first. Let me see if I need a 13/16 or something smaller. I have a few fittings to install so this may work for me

I've got two friends with a total of 5 kegs that need to be punched. Put me on the list if this could be passed somewhat soon.
