Air-Driven Nailer Modified With Special Punch

Roger W. Meihak, 10150 223rd St. No., Forest Lake, Minn. 55025 ph 651 433-2600; loroinc@yahoo.com): "Anyone who has worked with stainless steel will probably agree: stainless steel looks nice but is hard on tools. It quickly dulls drill bits, hole saws, reamers, etc. This was shown to be true on one of my projects, and I discovered a way to make holes quickly and easily in the 20-ga. stainless steel I was using.
  "My invention uses an air-driven nailer modified with a special punch. The punch attaches to the nailer and, in most cases, it can be used with one hand. The punch can also be used as a center punch. Besides lowering the cost of making holes, another advantage is speed. Holes are punched in one or two seconds. The tool works very well in ordinary sheet metal as well as aluminum.
  "I'm not planning on marketing the system at this time, but it has a patent pending on it."
