    I can't find this tool so suspect I'm not looking under the right name. It is a set of dies to cut holes in sheet metal. You drill a hole and then put in top and bottom cutting dies which cut out a hole as they are tightened. SWeems like there are six sizes in set. What would be the formal tool set name?

    A swedge die is used to punch holes in electrical boxes, is this what you mean?

  4. Greenlee is a popular and respected brand... these go by various names: knockout punches, panel punchs, knockout dies, slugbusters, chassis punchs. I have no idea which name is actually correct.

    cheers,
