Graduated Group of 5 Wad Punches - Saddlers Round Punches
A good and little used graduated group of wad punches by FOOTPRINT and PRIORY of Sheffield.
The three blue punches are by FOOTPRINT and marked 'No.6', 'No.12' and '12mm'. The No.6 punch has a 5mm diameter hole, the No.12 a 9mm diameter hole and the 12mm a 12mm hole.
The other two punches are by PRIORY and marked '8' and '10'. The No.8 punch has a 6mm hole and the No.10 a 7.5 hole.
All very confusing but we believe that the numbers on the smaller four punches may relate to round punches used by saddlers and harness makers where the number is not a direct indication of the actual size.
Between 105mm and 137mm overall length.
