Hi there

I am looking to buy a chassis punch to go through 1mm steel (not stainless) being an arcade control panel

will a chassis punch do this or is this too thick for a punch?

Or will a hole saw be a better option?

Cheers

I bought a set just like these years ago and have used them HEAPS for all sorts of things. Well worth the investment. Sold at Jaycar and I'm sure some of the discount tool places.

You could try McJing tooling in Yagona for a set of these. They import tools from China (mainly), but most are a better quality than the regular Chinese rubbish. Might be a genuine option if you only expect to use it a few times.
