    12G Wad Punch and Filler Wad/Overshot Card Punch

    Not sure if anyone would be interested or not, but a while ago I got sick of being told my LGS was out of "specialty" shotgun components (non-resin wads, filler wads, cushion wads, overshot cards) so I decided to make a press-mounted tool to produce my own.

    I posted my design on YouTube and received a number of inquiries from people interested in buying one for themselves, so I found a shop to produce 100 units for me. If you'd like to see what the tools look like, you can check them out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyDQRUyzo3Y If you'd like to purchase one, you can email me at greg AT tacticaladvantage DOT ca Price is $80USD including shipping and insurance to anywhere in the US or Canada.

    I've had a lot of inquiries about similar tools for 20G and .410; I doubt there'd be enough demand for me to make something in those, however if you know of anything similar please let me know so I can refer folks.

    Thanks!

    I have been watching those videos for a while. Glad you got production up and running.

    I started buying old card and fibre wads in most of the common gauges at our local gun shows years ago when they were out of fashion and everyone was using plastic wads, so I was lucky and got them all at low prices. I pretty much have a lifetime supply ...

    Yeah I did that for a while but the time involved quickly became too much for me.

    I'm from Canada and they're absurdly expensive here, IF you can even find them. Pretty much the only option at this point is to order them from BPI, but they only have two distributors up here and after the exchange rate, markup and shipping it's just ludicrous.
