The 3 ton punch press punches bot the single hole at the tip for the cheat as well as the holes to mate up with the holes in the handle. The current configuration is punch holes for the handle. In operation, the huge flywheel is spinning. I slide the saw in above the die and step on the pedal underneath the yellow guard. Dogs slide out and engage the wheel which in turn slams the punch down and through the saw.
Here are some saw blades which have already had the single hole punched and are now waiting for the handle holes.
