RS PRO Carbide Point Automatic Centre Punch

Introducing the carbide point automatic centre punch from RS PRO, high quality hand tool ideal for self striking centre punches with precision in a variety of materials such as metal. The RS PRO carbide point automatic punch features a carbide point that offers exceptional durability and wear resistance. The punch features a pen style design with a clip, allowing you to attach it to a pocket. The slimline design makes this tool particularly suited to scribing or dot punching on soft, ductile materials, mild steel or abrasive aluminium alloy materials, where standard HSS tooling would quickly dull.
