    Rotating hole puncher - less than 2mm punches?

    Hello folks: Happy New Year!

    I have one of those handy rotational leather hole punchers (please see a borrowed picture from a similar tool below). Mine has six hole punchers, from 2mm to 4.5mm in increments of 0.5mm.

    I have searched the Internet trying to find a similar tool that will include hole punchers smaller than 2mm, but all I've found include pretty much the same sizes (it seems like a standard tool) :(. In "my potential business idea" ;), I wish somebody will make one rotating puncher including six punchers starting from 0.5mm to 3mm, with increments of 0.5mm as well.

    Please let me know if any of you have ever seen or heard about the availability of such a tool. ;)

    Thanks in advance and, you all have a wonderful year ahead!

    Might check out Tandy Leather for one suggestion.

    Hey Nokie,

    I checked Tandy Leather as per your suggestion (thank you). They have three or four models of Rotary Leather Punch but the smallest punch in all of them is 1.9-2.0 mm (or 5/64") which is the same I have.

    They also sell a smaller individual threaded steel punch tube of 1.5-1.6 mm (or 1/16") which is exchangeable for other punch tubes in some of the rotary punches they sell, but the tubes in my rotary puncher are not replaceable (they're fix).

    One of the rotary punch they sell is not that expensive. So, one option I may consider (if nothing else comes up) is buying their rotary punch and the extra replaceable mini tube. Now, the problem (for me) is that, firstly, I'll end up with two similar tools (a second set of unneeded tube sizes); secondly, I'll add only one more punch size of the three sizes I'm looking for (the 1.5 mm).

    I'll then still have to keep looking to see if I can find an individual punch with 1.0 mm and 0.5 mm punch holes; I mean, start looking for individual pliers (not the rotary type) that could have that size of a punch hole (0.5 mm and 1.0 mm punch each). Not really the road I wanted to take as I have a rotary punch of a very good quality (from the clean, sharp cuts point of view) and very convenient (as it's rotary), and I just thought a similar tool with smaller punch holes (I'd call it "micro rotary punch" ) may have already existed in the market.

    Thanks for giving me some directions.

    Regards!

    If they don't have exactly what you want might also check out either ofrei or esslinger as well.
