Before drilling into a workpiece, use these centering and marking punches to make an indentation at the center of your hole to help keep your drill from drifting away from center. They can also be used to create marks for drilling holes at the same location in separate workpieces for inserting fasteners, or to scribe lines into your workpiece as a guide for cutting.
Use a hammer to strike these punches on their blunt end, and the tip of the punch will create a small indentation or hole depending on the amount of force applied.
