    I'm looking for a Plier much like an olive or cherry pitter, but with
    a larger diameter push-rod and a back-side hole diameter of 1" to
    1-1/8"

    Does such a thing exist?

  2. Haven't seen one. Im thinking that the force required to push a 1"
    diameter punch or whatever through most materials would render a plier
    configuration less than optimal.

    I Googled lever press and this popped to the top of the list:

    For a 1" hole, I think this is more or less what will be available.
    Punches and dies sold separately, of course.
     

  3. Here is a small Arbor press at Harbor Freight for $50:

    No intense force needed. Very cold object is foil packaging cuts
    fingers ;-)

    Get ur self a cheap set of channel lock pliers and weld the
    pieces you need on the jaws.

    You must know some one around that can do that for you?

  8. OK, Yoda. ;-) I think I know what you are up to. You want something
    that can punch through the file packaging. The tolerances will probably
    have to be closer than those for an olive pitter or the foil will just
    fold around the punch. There are large paper punches sold at some arts
    an crafts shops that might fit the bill.

    As I write, I'm studying a snap-fastener plier to see if I can adapt
    it.

    In the packaging is the frozen food for my salt water fish ;-)

    Then why would you need a one inch hole?

    It's cubes, ~1" on the diagonal.

  12. I thought you fed them with annoying posters from s.e.d.
