Description

Name and Number Stamps are used to mark metal or timber with lettering and numbers (e.g. to denote ownership).


Features and Uses

More complex stamps of logos, initials or symbols can be similarly used by craftsmen (e.g. Hallmarks applied by Silversmiths or Assay Offices).


The workpiece must be well supported on a Blacksmith's Anvil, Stake or Bench Block, for example, and the stamp struck sharply just once to make a strong impression.


DT Online Buyers' Guide
  • The lowest cost option is to use a hand-held punch with a hammer but a wide range of automatic punches are available - both Dot Punches and Centre Punches.
  • In general, Dot Punches have a sharper point (i.e. 60° instead of 90°) and need only the lower ranges of impact force (e.g. 20N to 50N).
  • Automatic punches are simply pushed down against the work-piece and do not need to be struck - indeed, should NOT be struck with a hammer.
