What is PUNCHit?
Just punch it man, just punch it, go!
PUNCHit is a dedicated, single-purpose blender addon featuring a negative for the initial release manifold extrusion tool, that attempts to work more reliably and be more flexible, than Blender's native manifold extrusion.
MACHIN3tools DeusEx 1.0 will feature the exact same tool, among its many other tools.
Meaning existing DeusEx customers will receive this tool (not this addon) for free with the upcoming MACHIN3tools 1.0 release.

How to Install
SHIFT + E
PunchIt is used to create a negative, manifold extrusion along either the averaged face normal, the individual vertex normals or a user-defined edge.
Unlike Blender's native Extrusion tool, it can be used to punch through meshes, as well es subtractively extrude at the mesh silhouette.
Any number faces, but only the biggest island will be used
One or multiple connected Edges
The mesh object needs to be manifold, or the tool will complain.
You can use the CleanUp tool in MACHIN3tools to find non-manifold edges.
