Default IEC connector- tool that punches out the correct size hole?

Is there a tool that punches the correct size hole for an IEC connector in aluminum? (I know they make em for circles, but my dad swears there an IEC one)

Are you talking metric size knockouts or square punches?

There are 13 different kinds of IEC connectors, which one are you talking about?

This one? http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...C60320_C14.jpg

I always had to use a regular rectangle punch, never could find a big enough "D" punch.

You could also use the Klein 76011B Nibbler Tool

I don't know where else you could find a rectangular punch, but the Greenlee ones are about $300!

I'd just mark the size, drill a hole and either nibble it away, or take my Dremel to it!
