Stanton, the original thread in the how to forum was locked soon after it was posted. The thread was then copied here into the general forum so others can comment.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Jim Becker mentioned to use hardwood instead of softwood and not metal, which is a good idea. I have found after trying many surfaces that certain plastics work best. I think what I use is ABS. It's black and some what flexible at 3/16 to 1/4 inch thick.

Commonly available kitchen cutting boards should work well. I've never dared to try one.

Jim, you'll need to buy a dedicated one for gaskets...those little hole circles would not be appreciated by other family members!!

This type is what I've had success with:

I use this punch set which has it's own backing die and a larger diameter punch than the hollow hole punch set. When I need more throat depth into the material I remove one of the screws in the punch guide.

For a backer board, I have a piece of hard nylon, about 8” square 3/4” thick. I’m sure I picked it up at a swap meet, I’ve been beating on it for a long time.

Thanks to everyone who contributes ideas and suggestions/corrections to my "How To Make Your Own Gaskets" thread. I've incorporated them into the post, kept this one here, and created a "locked" version over in the How To Forum.

Thanks again!
