Looking at buying these punches:

The problem is, they don't seem to come with a die or base. Can't find out anything online. Just need advice on if they would work and what else I would need to use them.

Matt,
These are transfer punches, meant for marking the center of a hole, using the hole in a mating part.

I have a couple of punches I got from the leatherworking section of my LHS. They are great for making tiny discs for lots of different uses.

I found this place online: http://umm-usa.com/onlinestore/index.php

they've got square punches, round punches, hex punches, D punches, and all kinds of other nifty stuff.

I'll be buying the RP Toolz punch, direct from Hungary.
