RFI: holepunch?

Anyone know where I can get a decent holepunch? Of the sort used for fabric. I had one I got from Home Despot, and while it was okay for putting new holes in leather belts, when I was using it to punch holes in denim for my utility belt, I sheared the metal in the wheel mechanism and it blew up. I have this thoery that somewhere there are more heavy duty holepunching tools, perhaps intended for use on heavy leather or something, that can handle going through a couple layers of denim.

Of course, I eventually also need to get myself stuff for working with leather, too, but that's another expenditure.




Also on the RFI subject; one of these days, I really want to learn basic wiring so I can build stuff with LEDs. I own a soldering iron, but have only a vague idea of how to use one.




I also need a month off to work on my various random projects.

A Japanese screw punch from Lee Valley is terrific - cuts cleanly and easily, and can be used well away from edges. It has interchangeable punches for different sized holes. Den can get you replacement punches too.

I aspire to LED knowledge as well - we should talk sometime!
