The Deck Punch for Punching Holes in Decking Material is a new invention available for license:
The Deck Punch eliminates the need for drilling, cutting a hole with a hole saw or using a hand-driven punch. By comparison, drilling or cutting a hole takes a lot more time and requires a battery drill or a drill motor and power (and a hand punch leaves an uneven surface below and interferes with the installation of the deck insert).
How It works:
The Deck Punch is bolted to a mandrel, which has a shaft inserted into the barrel of a low-velocity piston-type of fastening tool. This tool is used for driving hard steel pins into concrete. The piston, which is driven either by gas or powder, hits the end of the hardened shaft of the mandrel, driving the Deck Punch through the deck. This provides a clean opening the same size and shape of the punch. Since the mandrel is larger than the punch, it prevents the punch and mandrel from going completely through the material. The punch and mandrel are retained in the Deck Punch, enabling the operator to move to the next location on the deck and repeat the process efficiently.
