I am researching a project from a layman's perspective and was
wondering if someone can help me.
Problem: to build a puncture press that will push a hole in the cast
aluminum and platters of a hard drive.
Air compressor with 150 PSI max pressure and a jig to hold the hard
Air cylinders of any required size
A "punch" that will fit on the end of the air cylinder to be driven
through the hard drive.
What cylinder size will be required for the given pressure?
What size should the piercing end of the punch be in order to
penetrate the cast aluminum, the platter and the circuit board?
All help is appreciated.
