New center punch


#1

Hi,
I’ve recently purchased a new automatic center punch, it cost about 20 quid from delaneys
for those that don’t know it makes a small indentation on metal to help when drilling a hole.
for the last one someone decided to remove and lose the end pin which is hardened metal.

I would appreciate if this one was not taken apart and had parts removed or lost, it will live in the black metal tool chest for now
Also do not hit this with a hammer, it’s designed to be pushed down on, you can alter the amount of pressure needed by screwing / unscrewing the top part.

(also it’s probably best to keep this away from the surface plate)

Many Thanks
Richard
