Long Taper Line Up Punches
â?¢ Always wear safety goggles and safety gloves when using any striking tools to guard against flying debris.
â?¢ Always select the correct type, shape and size of punch or chisel for the application. Not only will it increase your work efficiency but it will also help maintain its useful life.
â?¢ Always use a punch and chisel holder to prevent hand injury.
â?¢ Always ensure the working end is pointed away from yourself and others.
â?¢ Do not use a chisel that has a dull cutting edge and never use a grinder on punch or chisel as it might alter the hardness of the material and cause tool failure. Instead, restore the cutting edge using a hand file or whetstone to its original shape and angle.
â?¢ Do not use a punch or chisel that has mushroomed striking head as small pieces might chip off and cause an injury. Re-file mushroomed end using a hand file or whetstone.

â?¢ Do not use a chisel as a screwdriver or pry bar as the cutting edge might break and cause an injury.
