I have some smaller metal stamps that I use on brass, copper, and sterling silver blanks which are then used to accent jewelry, plant markers, and whatnot. Because I was looking for an option for a larger print, I chose this TEKTON 5/16-inch set in hopes that it would work for more than just utilitarian marking of tools and such.
As with any metal stamp, the end results vary depending upon the softness of the metal. For instance, aluminum, copper, and sterling silver seem to take a impression more clearly and easily than metals such as brass or steel.
It's important to place your to-be-stamped metal piece directly on a very rigid surface for stamping. Countertops have some "give" to them, so it's really better to do it on something like a concrete floor. I use a scrap of heavy flat iron that I lay on concrete. With small cut-outs of harder metals (such as brass blanks), there's a tendency for the rest of the blank to want to curve up a bit as you strike the...
I'm a big fan of TEKTON tools because of the quality and these punches worked as advertised. They don't however stamp the stainless I had hoped they would. I'm not really sure what I was thinking because they are of similar properties, but that's besides the point and a bit embarrassing. I'll have to re-think how to do what I want on this project, but that's my problem. I have no doubt they will work great for wood, plastic, and aluminum though.
This product gets four stars and not five solely because when I took the wood box they come in out of the cardboard TEKTON box, the panel broke off and dropped "Hardened Chrome Vanadium" punches all over my tiled kitchen floor. My project at hand flashed before my eyes as I envisioned a simple lettering job turning into a re-done tile floor. Talk about project scope creep. The female cohabitant wants to re-do this floor but I'm certainly not chomping at the bit for an additional project. Anyways to the point. Turns...
Using these for copper plates to identify trees. I have an 10 digit code to identify each tree in the orchard, stamp that onto a copper tag, then hang the tag on the cage that is used to protect the young trees from deer. The key to these is keeping them vertical during the strike, use a quick double tap with a brass hammer, then place it back in the right slot. Another key is finding the right substrate to strike on. Soft cedar makes a mess of the tag, but an old oak drawer front worked well. The next round I'll set up a stamping jig to properly hold the label and to align each stamp. Used several of the stamps multiple times, and there is no wear yet on the stamp. The thin board that holds and identifies the stamps is very flimsy, and easy to dislodge when removing a stamp. For now, the box will work, but over time I'll need to make some changes to the inside part of the box. I'll update if any issues develop, but this is a good set.
