    Hi folks,

    I'm after an automatic center punch to use for pin removal (having a hand free would be really useful)

    I found loads on Amazon/eBay - the problem is, none of them mention the size of the point/tip. I imagine the diameter would have to be less than 1.5mm to be of use.

    Any center punch users out there that can recommend a suitable model?

    Cheers guys :)

    My company uses these McMaster-Carr
    it's the ones on the top. The smallest these go are 1/16", and they also have a 3/32".
    but with you guys being in the UK...I dunno what to tell ya. i think it would be reasonably safe to assume that they are around the 1.5mm that you were mentioning. That probably wasn't very helpful....

    Randy!
