    I've used these. Loved them. So did many other thieves I worked around. Making them is going to happen.

    Looks good, what material did you use for the punch point?

    My guess is a broken drill bit.

    Nice, and seems to have more punch than the commercial version. The point started off as an old broken drill bit, but I reckon that a concrete nail with the head removed would work as well. Also, pretty good turning without access to a lathe.
