A New Tool
The copper strip is 26 gauge and was annealed prior to punching out some small discs. Also, the punch was lubricated with Bur-Life. Although the punches are advertised as hardened, I take no chances and anneal and lubricate. I will say this, although small in size, the tool is precisely made. I doubt if I will ever use the tinier punches, but the four larger ones have potential.
I keep the set in an Altoids mint tin. It does not come in any kind of storage container other than a rather weak plastic bag.
