1.Best to mark

You want to place the holes in your belt one inch apart from each other to maintain even spacing. While this is the standard for most belts, feel free to deviate from that standard if you wish. However, it is important that you choose a spacing for your holes and then stick to it throughout your work. Use a ruler to mark the location of each hole, making sure to mark it on the back so that if by chance there are any mistakes, your markings will not be visible.

2.Choosing the right size

You will find six different sizes to choose from when punching the most popular sizes on the premium rotary punch offered by WUTA.

The best thing to do at this point is to look at your belt and estimate the size of the claw. The pins will need to go through the holes you punch, so these holes must be at least a little larger than the diameter of the pins.

If you're not sure what size is right, it's best to start small and work your way up. You can easily move up to a thicker punch to make a larger hole, but you cannot move backwards to make the hole smaller again. Start with a small margin of error and then gradually move up until you are satisfied with the hole you have created.
