The HF Flanger /punch is pretty decient ,I've been using my for a few years although the little pin that holds the handle on kept falling out an the handle would fall off, when I got tired enough of that I simply welded a tiny bead at both ends of the pin and it never gave me another moment of trouble...
.
Tech,the punch hole is the same size on all these flanger tools it is too small for a good plug weld ,a simple way to remidy this is punch two holes overlapping each other so it looks like an 8 insted of a o ......works great....
