allenlook,

I learned this for my dad many years ago and it works great. It also saves a trip when I ruin a gasket. :lol:

Lay your gasket material in place and use the ball end of a ball peen hammer around the perimeter of the casting/plate/other part. Lightly +-use the hammer (you know like Maxwell) and the gasket material will cut as with a knife. Use the same procedure on the ID of the gasket. For the holes make sure the cut gasket doesn’t move and peen the holes. The hammer will cut a nice hole. Larger holes are easier. Smaller holes require a smaller hammer.
For cork gaskets I use a utility knife to cut the shape of the gasket and thin wall brass tubing to punch the holes. 8)

Another good tool for punching holes is different sized "SPENT" ammo shell casings.

Donny, I rmember Dad using your method to cut differential housing gaskets out of cornflake boxes for our 51 Chevy pickup when I was a kid.
