Default Bottlecap hole punch at walmart

Just an FYI. There is a 1.8mm hole punch at walmart in the scrapbook section. Says on the back for use with thin metals. I haven't tried it yet. I will and let everyone know how it works.

Stupid question, but is 1.8mm the same as 1/16" by chance? I picked up that size today at JA on sale. I haven't tried it yet ... maybe I will now ...

Aaaannnd it is ... YEAH!

Ok, JA (JoAnn's) has their scrapbooking supplies on sale for 40% off and they have 1/16" (also 1.8mm) hole punches in stock. Either Fiskars or the cheaper ones (I bought the cheap one).

It works, but kind of hard to get it off the cap once it's punched.

Sorry it is 1/16. BUT I DO NOT recommend this punch!! Maybe they are all like this, but it is very hard to punch. Are any of the other punches easy to punch?

Thanks for the info. Is it the same as the one they have for sale here on HG? And how much did you pay for it? The one here is $12.50.

I played around a little bit with the hole punch I bought at JA. It's from Darice Crafter's Toolbox. It's a 1/16" which is the same as the 1.8mm punches. I took out the springy thing in the middle of the punch since I don't seem to need it. I made about 10 punches in various caps and other than it being a tad difficult to get the cap loose once you punch it, it works great. I paid $2.39 for it. HTH

$2.39 it's very cheap, I'm going to see if I find it tomorrow.

Are you talking about the Martha Stewart one for $5? Yeah, does not work at all!!! I was SO excited when I saw it I thought hey i'll try it and if it doesn't work I will take it back. Well, after a couple hole "punches" it broke or maybe I should say bent in half so it was not useable anymore or returnable! Live and learn I guess. Good thing it was only $5. I'm going to order the one from HG now.

My advice... Don't buy this to punch holes in bottle caps!

This is the one to buy!



you can buy it here

http://www.cooltools.us/Hole-Punch-P...-p/plr-100.htm

I have punched over 10,000 caps with it and haven't had to use the replacement pieces it came with yet. Also it so easy (cuts like butter) and doesn't take any force so you can do a lot of caps at a time.
