Has anyone found a place where you can buy a 120mm Greenlee Knock Out Punch (730EBB-120) in Canada?

Also pending the metal a possibility when using one of these? It seems like it would need a lot of torque.

You can find Greenlee Canadian Distrib on their website, WHERE TO BUY - Greenlee A Textron Company

I've used it on very thin aluminum cases and as long as you support the weight with your hands, you'll be Ok.

Speaking of big tools, I took some shots of My Grizzly G0580 14" Bandsaw 3/4 HP... I've owned it for 4 years without any problems. You can use 1/8" x .025 bi-metal blade for cutting acrylic and metal sheets. I usually cut 1/8" thick sheets.

Swell. Even have a bunch locally. Hopefully they'll have one.

I would watch Ebay as well for Knock-out punches, I found 3 for 80mm fans and 3.5" blade for 92mm fans on Ebay.

I've had this 12" Craftsman Bench top Drill Press for 4 years without any problems, other than the LED swivel light burned out. 5 speed (manual drive belt) with digital depth readout and Laser cross hairs. $219.00 at Sears
