NB: in the case of shapes, the pliers must be positioned perpendicular to the strap, so that the oblong is straight after the cut.
In the case of cylindrical holes, turn the strap at the end of the cut, to facilitate cutting and improve the cut.

REmoving and refitting the punches
The punches are housed in the pliers via a cone.
To remove, use a mechanic's pliers to extract the punches, or for shaped punches the through-pin supplied with the pliers
To refit, position the punch in its housing and press with the pliers to drive it in properly.
When replacing a shaped punch, use the pin to push through the punch. This enables you to orient the oblong correctly before permanent insertion.
