    Center Punch EYE

    Center Punch EYE.

    Made from Aluminum body, Brass punch holder, steel punch and Plexiglass eye piece.

    Eye piece has small circle inscribed at the bottom to center the target.
    I didn't make the plastic eye piece a gentleman in Texas sent it to me after I emailed him that I liked his design.

    Nicely machined punch guide. I like the eye piece idea.
