This vintage rug crafters tool is amazing. I loved it so much that i've imported a few more off e-bay to offer to people here in New Zealand and or around the world! It works with thick yarn 12ply to 16ply and is very easy to control. Some people prefer to have their canvas vertical as they punch with this tool, but i use it on a 30" x 30" gripper frame on my lap. It works with both monks cloth and rug warp. I haven't tried it with any other fabrics yet. Speed up your rug making or pillow making with this awesome vintage tool. It comes with lubricant, a metal threader, a original box and original instructions!
