These punches are specially designed for those who are building their own instrument/gauge cluster but can also be used as standard hole punches. No flare is added to the edge of the hole to allow for a flush, clean finish when your gauges are mounted in place. Very simple to use: just drill a pilot hole on center for where the gauge will be mounted. This hole is for the draw bolt. Set one half of the tool on the back side of the panel with the draw bolt going through the hole. Apply the second half of the tool over the draw bolt on the front of the panel and tighten the bolt. The finished hole is smooth and perfectly round. Several sizes are available from 2-1/16" for the smaller automotive gauges to the larger 3-1/8" for the instruments used in Aviation. Anti-friction bearings are included with purchase. If you plan to use a hydraulic or manual bench press, no pilot hole is needed. Just use a center punch to mark your location and use the optional spring-loaded center pin to insure exact placement of the hole. See the "How To" video for a demonstration.

The video below shows the Automotive Punch and Flare tool being used on 16 gauge cold rolled steel with the help of a hydraulic bench press and optional spring loaded center pin. If you are using the tool manually you will need to pre drill a pilot hole on center for where the gauge will be mounted. This hole is for the draw bolt. Set one half of the tool on the back side of the panel with the draw bolt going thru the hole, Apply the second half of the tool over the draw bolt on the front of the panel and tighten the bolt.
