A Card Punch, or "Pegger", is a card marking device, that is used to place a small bump or "blister" onto the surface of a playing card, allowing the initiate to detect the card by means of touch.
The Pinpoint Pegger, designed and made by Eoin O'Hare, has many unique features, including an innovative pin holder design allowing the user to see the pinpoint itself, as the pegger is being used.
Features of the Pinpoint Pegger
The pin holder can accommodate various diameter of pin. A laser cut slit at the back of the holder aligns the pin and holds it securely whenever the two hex screws are tightened with the supplied hex key.
Back Stop & Side Fence
The back stop can slide along the main body of the pegger, and be locked in any position using the thumb screw. It remains independent of the pegger’s “up and down” arm movement when creating a blister. Used in conjunction with the adjustable sprung side-fence, they determine the position of the blister on the card.
Normal & Edge Marking
Traditional positions for blisters on a card’s surface, can be controlled with or without the stop and side-fence. Extreme edge marking is achieved simply by sliding the back stop forward until it touches the pin, and locking it in place using the thumb screw. Then adjusting the side fence to locate the desired lateral location of the blister, and also locking it in place using it’s sprung thumb screw.
