I'm not one to spend money on all the latest and greatest gadgets but this is one tool that I can definitely recommend! I recently purchased it so I could start using up some of the many eyelets that I have collected. But before I could try it out on eyelets, I used it to punch some holes in some acrylic sheets for an album I was working on. It punched through the acrylic like buttah!! This is one tool that I can say is worth the investment and it's always out on my work table .
