3 in 1 tool: marker, center punch and hammer!
Thanks for the comment Unkle Fuzzy! From the markings I made, I found no deviations from the center. I drilled a lot of plates this week and they were all good! Of course, accuracy in marking also depends on our manual skills. As we are all "experts" we will have no problems! What you saw maybe is the vibration of the camcorder or the table where the vise is attached ...

This center punch can be useful for making markings in unfavorable work positions (for example, upside down)! You can also reach places where a conventional hammer and center punch would not have access, due to the physical space! Goodbye hammered in the fingers! Goodbye center finder that escapes by hitting the hammer!

That looks useful. I think it might be a nice addition to my tool kit.
I occasionally use one of those pull spring center punches. I don't really like it too much, it's hard to hold the small end down and pull up the spring without pulling the point off center.
This looks better because you get to hold the back end and pull against your other hand.
Starrett auto center punches are great for prick punching, but not always able to mark deep enough for larger drills.
