Once out of the box, we can see that there's a pretty solid little plastic box inside:

Opening it up, we find a case filled with foam and punch bits:

The foam is fairly dense, and there's a guide as to what's what cut into the top part:

As you can see, the contents consist of the following: Everything is colour coded to boot and has the sizes marked on them:

So how does it all work? The center piece of the lot is the Rapidswitch piece:

One end is blank for striking, but the other has an opening to fit the punches into:

The punches are inserted into the end with firm force:

The fit is surprisingly good - once in the punch doesn't have any looseness in either vertical or horizontal directions, which is important. Whether that stays the case under repeated use remains to be seen, but so far it looks quite promising. The end result:

Overall the build quality is quite pleasing, and in use the punches perform quite well. All of the punches at this point seat firmly with no wiggle movement and work well as punches. We'll update after having used the kit for some time to see how it goes long-term, but at this stage it looks like a good way of getting a decent number of punches in a compact kit for not a lot of money.

You can usually find one on eBay, or you can search eBay for other pin punch sets.
