answer 2
Yes, this would work with leather. The punch has two bits that you change out for the different hole sizes; one on the bottom is the inner diameter of the hole you're punching, and the top-side is essentially a piston that gets forced down through the material. If it still tries to come out a little messy, the answer might be to go up one size for your holes.
