An idea what they look like. You might be able to find
them at a good electrical supply stockhouse (where house
wiring supplies are sold), as opposed to an electronic
parts store.

I have several punches, including a 1-3/4" punch that I
think I paid $30 for. I use it for Hubbell AC
receptacles in my custom rack panels.

The expensive punches are non-round punches, like D-sub
punches for serial/parallel jacks on PCs. These run at
least $125.
