Make your own tools
You will make a handled punch.

The handled punch is used to punch the large hole in a tool which has a wooden handle. It is meant to be hit by a sledge-hammer which imparts a great shock to the punch. For this reason, it is fitted with a handle made from steel rod. This is fitted slightly loosely, saving the user from shock.
