Leather Hole Punch.
Possibly the Mek's best friend.
Whilst mekkin larger Ork gubbinz for my Blitz Brigade there has been one tool that has moved further to the front of the tool box.
This is a simple device for punching holes in leather, so why has it become so important to me?
Well the by product of punching holes out of things is rather handy circles of waste material.
These things can usually be found in craft or hardwear shops in varying qualities and price ranges, but for our purposes cheap is good enough.
Cutting plastic will eventually wear out the brass plate that the cutting edge works to.
The example picture shows one I picked up in a local shop for the grand total of £3.50 and is still going strong.
This can cut plasticard of up to about 2mm thick that will be usable, (It will cut thicker but the shapes will be uneven and you have to have a grip like a vice to force it through in the first place.)
Here is a picture to show the different six sizes. The one I use the most is the smallest which is about 2mm across.
Some uses for lots of little plastic disks.
Ok ,so most of those are rivets but you get the idea.
