We recommend a 1 ton arbor press. You can use anything larger, of course, but please note that the Xpert Base might not fit on the larger arbor press. The base was designed to fit the 1-ton press from Central Machinery. It is much more affordable than larger arbor presses.
We have always bought our arbor presses from Harbor Freight. These are usually around $50-60. If you do not have a Harbor Freight near you, or your store is currently out of stock, you can buy one on our Pricing page.
We highly recommend the tool base as part of your purchase.The Xpert Tool Base was created as a response to customer feedback. It eliminates the need to secure the tool to the arbor press and greatly improves the tools’ performance.
With a 1 ton arbor press, you can expect to cut up to 0.080 aluminum. We do recommend exchanging the 12" handle on the arbor press with a 19" piece of steel rod. This will allow you to cut through the 0.080 easily.
For substrates such as Diabond, we have redesigned this tool to work with 6mm thicknesses!
The Hole Punch creates a ¼” or ⅜” hole in your material (depending on which one you purchased).
The Drilling Jig allows you to use an ⅛”, ¼”, ⅜”, or ½” drill bit.
The Hole Punch is used on an arbor press (sold separately).
The Drilling Jig can be used on a drill press or with a cordless drill (more convenient for job sites).
On the Hole Punch, you can use the guides to inset the hole ¼”, ½”, ¾”, and 1” from the edge or corner of the blank.
The guides on the Drilling Jig can be set every quarter inch up to 2” from the edge or the corner of the blank.
The Hole Punch is great for cutting through metals, composites, magnetics, etc.
The Drilling Jig works great with aluminum and acrylic panels, pvc, or other substrates, up to ½” thick.
The Drilling Jig attaches to the drill press platform. Different sized holes can be created with different drill bits.
You can use the guides to inset the hole up to 2” from the edge or the corner of the blank. ⅛”, ¼”, and ⅜” drill bit bushings are included with this tool.
The Drilling Jig works great with acrylic panels, or other substrates, up to ½” thick.
