Review by Goomer on January 30th, 2010
Harbor Freight sent me one of these along with the base by mistake. This was more expensive than the item I was supposed to get so I kept it (shame on me). I should have sent it back. It took a lot of effort to punch a hole, it is so large I found it awkward to use, at least for my purposes. The smaller hand punch (HAND PUNCH - 44060) I find to be a much better tool. Maybe they just sent a bad one, I gave it away.

This is almost a direct knockoff of a Roper-Whitney XX. The body of this punch is pretty decent. The set screws for the dies wear out with surprising speed, but easily replaced with better quality. The dies are extremely disappointing. This wouldn't be a problem, as you could replace them with real-deal (and relatively inexpensive) whitney dies...except the only substantial difference between this punch and the XX is the threads (the HF punch has metric threads). If you can find a good way to re-thread it, this punch could save you a ton of money over a XX.
