Square Punch

796 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  power
I have these square switches I would like to occasionally install. Sometimes they'd be in various cabinets, boxes, equipment, etc. It gets to be a pain in the butt to keep drilling, sawing, grinding, filing......

It appears this rocker switch (shown below) would need about a 1 1/8" x 7/8" square hole for a press-in-fit.

Does anyone know of a company who manufacturers a square punch? Either hydraulically pressed, or screw drive (draw stud) similar to our KO cutters?

Ok, Thanks to all. We have a Cincinnati Knee Mill in our shop, I thought of trying to just make one.....But then I thought I probably would have to harden it, and I don't suspect my acetylene (from the torch cutter) would suffice......I don't know.....just lazy too...rather just buy one. Well, see, $650+ is quite a bit for such a simple item.
