Using Your Hole Punch Pliers
by Judy Larson
Here's a really neat trick for making holes right where you want them with your hole punch pliers
Instructions
When placing the cutting blade/tip on a marked spot and closing your hole punch pliers, you will find that the hole made is probably not directly cut on the marked spot.  That is because the cutting tip is angled to make cutting through the metal easier.

Here is a way to cut the hole in the exact spot you want it.  Turn your hole punching pliers over so that the bottom jaw, the one with the hole, is on top.  Center the hole in the plier jaw over the marked spot and punch.  Viola!  Your hole will be in exactly the right spot every time!
