I was hoping for recommendations for a hole punch that was large enough to cut holes that a D-Ring could go through but also strong enough to cut through chipboard. I've see the WRMK crop a dile etc. but they looks as though they only cut brad size holes. I don't want to invest in a big book machine just a single hole punch system. Any ideas?

I have the original crop-a-dile and it definitely punches holes big enough to go through a binder ring. They aren't as big as a standard hole punch, but big enough to work.
I recently used it to punch holes in my daughter's favourite board book (so, pretty thick chipboard!) so I could re-bind it with binder rings.

You could use a drill with a bit large enuff for the size holes you need. HTH, Maria

My Cropadile has two hole punches - 1/8" and 3/16". I wish the bigger hole was 1/4", but 3/16" works for binder rings.

My poor Cropadile has been used to death! It's great for punching holes in chipboard, leather, tin, layers of cardstock. I love this thing. It's a workhorse of a tool.

That's good to know that the 3/16th is big enough. It looked rather small when I was looking at it in the package.d. Is there any advantage to the big bite or is it the same size hole bot a longer reach?

I always use my tool for eyelet holes. The one I have has changeable size heads. Maybe those are not something scrappers have these days but I guess I am rather an archacic scrapper. But then maybe you do if you have been scrapping for a while.
