I have a Starrett auto punch that is _stout_ and a General that is a wimp.

The Starrett will knock you fillings loose when you use it and turn up a serious dent, especially if you strike it multiple times.

Or just use an old school center punch. Sharpen it a bit to the pointy side, the shallow tip angle that typically comes standard for drill starting purposes is too flat.
