I'm curious if anyone has tried using a big router with a carbide or
diamond bit and a template to do the odd shapes. Of course, the
advantage of punches is that a smooth edge is the result.
I recall that the model shop guy at one location where I worked didn't
fool with Greenlee--he said that they were probably fine for field work,
but he relied on his Pexto punches (now part of Roper-Whitney) to do
that sort of thing in the shop. I suspect you'll find a Pexto or close
relative in most sheet-metal fab shops.
