6054Re: Gum Ammoniac Quandery
- Mar 2, 2002For making holes I've used an excellent tool from the dental
profession. I don't know the name of the tool; it is what they
use when making holes in rubber dams that they put over your tooth
and mouth just before that whine begins to resound in your ears.
It looks like a pair of pliers. There is a pointed punch on one
end and it mates with (on mine) one of 5 holes in an anvil which
rotates to bring the hole underneath the punch.
The holes range in size from approx. 1/32 - 1/8 inches. I haven't
used it on leather, but have used it on some fairly thick parchment.
