The palm hole punch can be used to punch holes in any size drip tubing for the insertion of 1/8” barbs (or for similar size only) or for the insertion of 1/8" micro tubing use with Spot-spitter spray head. This punch removes the residual debris formed as it punches a hole in the drip tubing. We recommend cleaning the punch every few holes to make sure that the material does not accumulate inside the metal pin. The main advantage of removing the waste material as you punch is to protect the drip emitters or spray heads from plastic debris that can, over time, plug the drip emitters and spray heads. Use a paper clip to remove the debris.

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.
