Guide your punch
What is a Punch Guide?
A nibbler has a die, a punch and a punch guide that all work together.
The punch is the moving part that does as it says... it punches a hole out of the metal you are cutting.
The die sits at the bottom of the punch. The punch goes in to the die when cutting.
The punch guide guides the punch in a straight line whilst punching.
Why do you need a new punch guide?
As with any moving part, things get worn over time.
The punch guide will eventually wear out over time due to the movement of the punch as well as the metal chipping you produce.
