Michael Posted November 12, 2009 Share Posted November 12, 2009 I managed to get my hands on almost a dozen set tools, hot cuts, punches, a fuller and set hammer at a garage sale recently.Got a chance to try them out yesterday. What a huge difference punching holes and hot cutting are with a handled tool, rather than a long punch!! It must be the added mass of the set tool, I cut the point off a RR spike with the hot set, a weighted chain holding the spike down and it was much easier to keep the cutter in the cut than with the hardy hot cut. Same with the punch. I haven't had the chance to use the handled fuller, swage or set hammer yet. this is the third bottle opener made, out of the RR spike this time, it only took about an hour, instead of the two plus the prior ones took to make.
