Useful information and cost implications

Consider the cost of corner keys:


Standard Corney Key
x 4/5 times the cost =
Gas Corner Key

A Gas Hole Punch Tool Kit could save you the cost of gas corner keys (see web link and photos below):


Please note: Collars and sleeves will be required for this method, but the cost of collars and sleeves is minimal in comparison to the cost of gas corner keys.
