If you are used to using FastCaps to cover screws on your cabinets, at some point you have needed some in a special color or wood species. Now you can make your own! FastCap is now offering their Custom Color Punch Kit. The kit includes a heavy duty hole punch, double sided tape, and their Flushmount drill bit.

Start by applying the tape to the back of the material you want to use as your cap. With a firm grip on the punch, you can make as many caps as needed, punching through the veneer. This kit allows you to quickly and accurately cover screws in the field or shop.

More information is on the Reviews page of my website.

these work great just whatch out for the britle species. works on plastic and real wood, some species though don’t take pressure too well. But commonly used woods no problem. I love it

Getneds,

With the brittle woods, wetting the wood before punching works quite well, and dos not seem to affect the tape.
