Best carto punch or best carto punch technique?
Hi,

I'm having trouble making holes of the right size in my cartos. I have tried the hammer and nail and the donut ring and screw punches but too often the hole ends up too big.

Can anyone recommend a reliable technique or punch so I don't waste so much juice and cartos.

This is for an AGR so I can't use the pre-punched cartos which all have a flange as far as I know.

Thanks

Chris

Are you getting flooding?

Use pre punched cartos with two holes and use a punch to make one bigger!

I've not had a flood yet.

BTW my punch is just a normal cheap screw in one.

Yes I'm getting flooding. I have a stack of un-punched cartos I'm trying to use up

I have 3 agr tanks and no you can get pre punched boges without the flanges from loads of places although I've not see pre-punched dc cartos withought flanges.

Don't bother with the smok cartos I find they flood almost instantly. I live the agr tanks just wish they were 22mm sothey looked better .

Ditto on agr but the threads aren't as good as an o ring tank and my mint mix cracks anything plastic Sad....I find my 50/50 mix is fine with just one hole.never feel the need for two..I have 3 punches and the Siam one I have is the best for me Smiling

By the looks of it the kir fanis punch has a washer attached to stop you punching too far into the carto,great idea! Just buy a couple of washers and pop them on your punch till you get the ideal length on yours. Gonna do this myself.

Don't bother looking down here....I'm not one for willy waving!
