    Ummm, what's the difference in that and a regular hole punch? I know you can get the ones that make the small holes.

    One of my scrapping buddies swears by this tool - her's is a Japanese Screw Punch. It will punch through anything like the description says. You can punch anywhere, whereas a hole punch you would be limited as to how far in you can punch.

    That's what they showed on the video and it looks like it just works like a charm.
    I may have to think about it for a while then splurge.

    I can't find it right now, but there's a similar tool that's sold by a scrapbooking place. The only problem is, it only punches through paper, while the Japanese screw punch punches thicknesses up to bookboard depth.

    Those Japanese screw punches are great. I've gone back and forth for months about getting one every time I have a 50% coupon for Joann's (they are very expensive,about $50) but I'm still thinking about it. But talk about a 'silent' setter for doing eyelets and such, this is the tool. It's easy to use and allows you to punch anywhere on a page to set eyelets and more. And it does cut through other materials as well.

    And later today........

    A HEADS UP! I went to Joann's on my way to work to pick up some deck chairs and while I was there I thought I'd check out the paper drills again. Joann's is clearing them out at 50% off! Here's your chance to get one at a great price - I did.
    I've played with it a bit and I can't believe how easy this tools cuts. I wish I would have broken down sooner.

    Depends on what you would use it for, but if for drilling through lots of paper, this could work too.

    That is a great punch, but is hard to use. You have to have muscle to use it. Just wanted to let you know. I had one and did not like it because of that, otherwise it did go through just about anything.

    This may sounds crazy (and cheap) but I use my DH's Dremel drill to punch or drill through thick pieces of chipboard or a lot of layers of card stock. The trick to drilling through multiple layers is to clamp them together so they will not more. I also put a piece of repositionable tape over my starting point to keep the paper clean. I use the smallest drill bit first to start my hole, then swap to a larger bit. It works like a charm. My DH swears he is going to put a lock on his workroom door so I will stay out, but I tell him I saving him money!!!
