Lever 1

These are two levers that are for sale
to help with pressing down on craft punches.
This particular type of punch is very hard to bear down on,
but the only model that offers a lot of shapes that I want cut outs of.
So Bret made me a homemade lever as you can see below.

Lever 2

I add a board to use for the smaller punches.
Larger and smaller punches are next to the lever,
with a medium one in the lever.
Using with the smallest size:
This is a sample of the shapes the largest one makes.
As you can see, it has multiple shapes
where the smaller ones have one each.
