This hand operated rotary punch is made for consistent repeat hole punching on leather belts and straps. This machine replaces manual hand held hole punches and mallet operations, therefore increasing efficiency and improving accuracy. The machines has an automatic feeding and self-centering gauge that can take straps that are between 1/2" to 4-1/8" inches wide.
As you rotate the manual hand crank the wheel punches the material and pushes along the strap. The feed (spacer) can be adjusted to punch holes that are 7/16" inch apart (10 mm) to a maximum of 1-3/4" inch (45 mm) apart. The hole spacing and shock absorbing anvil are adjustable too. There are size etchings on the machines for easy setup.
This is a wonderful leather working tool if you are in the business of large volume belt or strap production and looking for more efficient and consistent machines. We recommend you do the math to determine the amount of time spent manually punching individual holes based on your hourly cost to understand how long until you can effectively pay this machine off. We hope you find that this tool saves both time and future arthritis!
There are 4 holes in the base in order to bolt the clicker to a table.
