WHITNEY PUNCH


Recommended Posts

I bought an old Vhs video of Bill Moran and making handles, on it he has an old turn torque punch of some kind that punches the tang hole in the guard, he said a whitney punch (I thought), I can find whitney punches, but nothing like he had, which was a bench mounted looking little unit that punched a rectangular hole that was perferct for starting the tang hole. Beats drilling and then filing out the guts... I WANT ONE! Anyone with any clues where to get one.

i recently priced odd sized dies for my model #24....ropers price for both punch and die was around 350.....toooling up isnt cheap.... but seeing as the 24 was a gift(list around 1100 new) 350 for punch and dies isnt sooooo bad...

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart,and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart...

I'm not familiar with these punches, but there seems to be on on Ebay for sale.

Current bid is under $200, but the bid doesn't close for three days.

 

Cheers,

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Thanks for the info, but right now, 200 dollars is a little much for me.. wife wants to go to the smokey's. But in the video he torqued it around and it punched a square tang hole in his fittings like "shamwow" .... ok, that dude gets on my nerves on that towel commercial... but at any rate, it was like "pow" and the hole was there, saving mega mega time.
