    Got tired of screwing with the one I got from Ebay. It's okay, but I don't think I'd really use it for more than casual use.

    So I picked up a Micron today (already had a buncha grommets from that vendor).

    Built solid, looks to have closer tolerances all around. Came with a little thing of tools and screws.

    Punches a nice hole, lines up nice and straight with the washer end. Crimps everything into a nice clean professional package.

    Handle is NOT long enough for using at counter/bench height. I have to lean on it to set the grommets, and I'm not a little person. when I mount the sucker, I'm going to hit the hardware store and pick up a length of "cheater" pipe. That should fix the leverage issue.

    Only thing I don't like about it.
