Looks promising.  I have a number of hole punches I've made over the years and it would be nice to use something that doesn't require a hammer!  :o)

Nice! 
I can't even count the number of times I've needed something like that or even something that would yield the round disks that resulted though it looks like this tool wouldn't provide that end of it so much.

That's a rubber dam punch used by dentists.  I've got a couple at the office.

It sure would be nice to have tool like that for punching out square/rectangular holes for windows and doors.

MicroMark does have a corner punch for doing that - never tried it.

I was look for a good tool to punch holes and save the round interior part. I did try one of the
leather punches that have about six sizes on one tool. I used it to make target faces for n scale
track signals and street signs. The tool work okay but is rather on the cheap-tool side. (pick up
at a local flea market for like 3 bucks or something)::

Seems to me like it might be a help in cutting streamline windows for passenger cars from sheet styrene.  Not sure of the sizes involved but it might be something to consider.

It's not used directly on the teeth, it's used to isolate them with a piece of latex rubber.

Another option-

You can get square,rectangle, etc punches for it.
Depending on hole size,we've used ours (including the "junior")on 16 gauge steel or better.
Harbor Freight sells a cheaper chinese rip-off,but I don't know if Roper punches will fit it.

Hmm... bad enough...

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I just went through a root canal and a crown procedure on one of my molars. I know more than I wanted to about those rubber dams!  :RUEffinKiddingMe:

I concur with BOK on the rectangular or square punch tool in this sort of device.
I purchased the Micro-Mark version which seems to be for a drill press which I DO NOT have.
I have tried it on styrene by tapping firmly with a hammer.  I am not prepared to cut wall blanks
at this time and try to do window or door openings with it.  The plier tool would be more easily controlled,
however would need a big throat to allow for reach into wide styrene sheets.
It is not clear if the Roper Whitney version would work for doing two or more story structure windows or upper floor doors. Would like to hear comment on that use.

Sign me up for one.  8)
