HANDY HOLE TRANSFER PUNCHES
When fabricating gaskets, exhaust flanges, etc. , a set of hole transfer punches can make the job easier. However if you do not have transfer punches, or if they’re always at the other end of the shop, this little trick comes in handy. Set the tool of your lathe a little below center line, face the back end of a drill bit, leaving a pointed “pip”. Use the bit as a transfer punch by tapping the other end of the bit with a soft leather or plastic mallet. We make this easy modification to the bits in all our drill indexes.
