Cutting corners
« on: July 13, 2018, 06:14:17 pm »
Getting frustrated at cutting out small windows from things printed on adhesive backed label stock , new blade but some places where the cut outs are close together the  :censored: stuff tears, (thus causing tears of frutration)

I decided to search #Amazon for square punches in a variety of sizes, did find some obviosly from a distant shore as delivery was August, however I may still order a set, in the meantime I'm going to try these

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07CNSDFKK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If they don't do what I want then it's these, 5 sizes 1mm through 5mm

I would have thought there would be a UK stockist, but they only seem to do round or multi sets like the first one above.

Well the good news is that the punches do work, nice clean hole in paper, card or plasticard, however the smallest square hole is 6mm, for the job in hand I want less than 3mm, so have now ordered the set of 5, 1mm through 5mm, from China due to arrive some time in the first half of August.
