Hi gang, like the heading says I'm looking for "letter stamping
pliers". I've seen them before but never used them. The general idea
is that they have little letter wheels (several to a set, obviously)
where you rotate your chosen letter into position, then press the
letter into the metal by squeezing the pliers. Typically used for
stamping rings, I believe, though I'll be stamping on the outside of
the ring, not the inside (necessarily).
My particular challenge is that I need to be able to stamp mini
letters (.5-.75mm) and midi letters (1-1.25 mm). It would be ideal if
the same different sized letters could be used on the same pliers
(interchangeable sets). I've found one source but they've only got
the letters in mini-mini (.5mm) for inside ring stamping.
For what it's worth I have seen stamps for these size letters but
I'd rather have a pliers set-up for this due to the nature of the
work I have in mind.
Any and all suggestions, even near-misses or "try this" ideas, would
