One thing to remember for punch health is to keep them lubricated.
This is especially true for aluminum. It tends to stick to surfaces.
It can cause the punch to skew and break. A light lub on the
blade works best while the threads should use a grease.
Cleaning the threads will also help to keep chips from getting
into the threads.
Find a local pizza place, music store, museum and more
then map the best
