The bit will stay in the indent as it powers through the material and the force won't make it wobble off target. This punch is made from alloy steel and comes with a non-corrosive black oxide finish.

      Center punch

      This seemed a bit small. But it worked just fine for what I used it for . And it's made in USA !!!. They are tough and will last me a life time. Just another product that Craftsman made right.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Another great craftsman product

      It's a center punch that works as described. Would recommend picking one up instead of using a screwdriver. Always use the right tool for the job.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Craftsman 3/8 x 4-1/2 in. Center Punch

      The boy and I were helping Mamma in the greenhouse today and she needed a small green house repaired. It seems as though the stringers from which the grow lamps were hung were broken and she needed a way to rehang the lights. Since the frame of the little green house is all steel I figured we could drill a few holes and hook the chains that the lights hang from that frame.

      Jake asked if he could drill the holes and, of course I obliged and said he could if he knew what he was doing. He assured me he did. He never counted on the driull bit walking all over the place and off the rounded steel tube! "How do you keep that from happening," he asked.

      As we all know, you need to dimple the steel to allow the drill bit to sit in once place and do its work! So, I grabbed the ball peen hammer, my Craftsman punch and chisel holder and the center punch and showed him how it was all done!

      Drilling holes and need to keep the drill bit from walking? Get a Craftsman 3/8 x 4-1/2 in. Center Punch today!
