Default Bottle Cap Hole

What do you use to hold the bottle cap when you drill a whole? I held them and my fingers began to hurt.
Thanks,

uhm..... that can happen - it's why ready-made-caps and cap-crafts are really not that cheap they take a lot of time, and sometimes blood 'n sweat.... You can try holding them with a good pair of pliers, but they'll probably slip before your hands would.... just don't give up and be careful.

How is that strong enough? I have also seen this idea on the internet. Tell me more.

Ladies, I know this thread is old but I just purchased the Fiskars hold punch and it isn't working. I have fattened bottle caps so I tried punching it from the top and it smashed the caps so I did it from the bottom. It worked good for a few bottom caps and then stopped punching through them. I would stop clean it, tried to sharpen the end and it would work for a few more and stop again. Does anyone know of a stronger punch? Something more industrial (LOL)!!

Also, I am using modge podge to glue down my images but they just seem to float on top and not really glue flat. I am worried the resin is going to get underneath and ruin the print.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Susan

Ok ladies - go and do a search on the forum for Bottlecap Hole punch tool -- I hav eone - and LOVE it!!!!! It is used for jewelry making and has a beveled edge!!!! I love it! I can whip through hundreds of caps easily!!! My 3 year old is out of patience, http://www.cooltools.us/Hole-Punch-P...-p/plr-100.htm

this is the exact one I have - it comes with a replacement beveled edge - hole is totally fine and fits a split ring beautifully!!!

I also have the cool tool one and it works great-not hard to punch at all-my 4 yr old g.daughter can do it-sometimes not in the right place though. I have used it probably 100 times and still is sharp and I haven't changed or sharpen it yet.

Thanks Ladies, I will order this one. My little Fiskars just can't handle the job! LOL! It was not easy at all and would never have gone through 1a 100. Do you punch from the top side or from the bottom? What about the glue problem? Do you the xyron sticker way or e6000 glue?

Talking Re: Bottle Cap Hole

Ladies, I forgot to ask what size split rings do you use to attach the chain with.

WE are waiting for our punch from cool tools (it's taking FOREVER, but we are in Canada). In the mean time my husband just bought grippy work gloves to wear while drilling. No complaints yet!
