There are any number of Ebay sites offering lengths of 16mm x 2mm stainless steel tubing. A short length, edges sharpened at one end on a grindstone, plus a wooden mallet should be effective.
You might need a length of 12mm dowel to get the sample out.
Whether the value of the information gleaned is worth the damage caused is another question.

Morning all,
This looks pretty straightforward in a textbook but I am  wondering how 
effective it is in practice, anyone out there tried it, if so is it effective 
and any recommendations for a decent 16mm punch?

Thanks - Elton
