I am working on a small project and I started thinking about using a punch instead of drill bits since the holes they produce are much cleaner. There are some specific drill sizes that will allow 6, 8 and 10-32 screws to clear without having too much slop, and others just slightly smaller which will allow the metal to be tapped for the same screws. Does anyone know if they make numbered punch sizes in addition to fractional sizes for something like a Whitney punch?

In the first pic think the base section holding the punches constitutes the die. And the clear plastic would be a guide. Came across these on HF the other week when looking for something similar - square punches.
