The Drip Store's larger diameter palm punches are constructed of heavy duty plastic and fit comfortably in your hand when punching precise holes in any size drip tubing from 3/4" and up. Use 8 mm tool when installing large starter barb LF318 for both 1/2" .700 OD polytubing and 17 mm dripline laterals. This punch removes the residual debris formed as it punches a hole in the drip tubing. We recommend cleaning the punch to make sure that the material does not accumulate inside the metal pin. Use 4 mm tool for Spot-Spitter system (direct connection of 1/8" poly micro tubing without barb) and for Katif drippers with large 4-5 mm barb.

Punches and drip tubing cutters are common tools used in the layout and installation of a micro irrigation system. The punches come in various sizes and are used to punch holes in the drip tubing for the insertion of drip emitters or 1/4" barbed fittings. The drip tubing cutters are used to cut the drip tubing where needed. Together, the punches and cutters provide the installer with the main tools needed for the installation of a drip irrigation system.
