One of the virtues of a simple initial stamp it that it's a heck of a lot easier for someone to search on it on the web.  There's a tool making company's stamp that I'm going to write on a post it as I've spent way too much time hunting it down more than once because they have the letters jumbled up...

Finally got a clean transfer from the touchmark that I forged from coil spring.  Then scribed a loose sketch into a layer of sharpie on the working end of the punch, and carved the pattern using engraving tools that I forged earlier. And did some clean up using a rotary tool. Here is the stamp and the impression in the reigns of a set of tongs I just finished up.20201207_135919.jpg.0109144e7d6d99bef3afe6df4fe85c16.jpg

I have searched online and there are so many places selling touch marks. There are some really nice expensive ones, and some more affordable ones but its hard to tell how durable those are. If anyone knows a good place to order a durable custom touchmark that won't completely break the bank, let me know.

We have a lot of members in Ohio, some may be close enough to you to visit once this pandemic abates and we all get shot.:) We won't remember your location once leaving this post, hence the suggestion to edit your profile to show a general location ( no need to put in your exact address):ph34r:. That way every post will let us know where you are.

It's been almost a year since he's logged on. A PM notification might get his attention. If not Buckeye engraving is also a reputable company.

Howdy all, I am still here. Survived 2020 and still making the touch marks for iforge people.  Marking Tools since 1960 Made in USA Michigan. If you need something I have made special arrangements you can go direct. Not through distributors. 

If you have a budget limit let me know so we can make suggestions to complexity and size to best get what you need.

We make thousands of stamps a week for manufacturing companies but I am an old metal worker hobby guy myself and still support the small business and individuals here as well as car restoration, firearm and tool guys. 

Admin if you could make sure PM request notifications still go to my email I would appreciate it.

Very nice. I've been thinking about the outline of a honeybee because my last name is derived from the old English word for beekeeper but I'm not at level where I need to start marking my work yet. When I am you'll be the first person I contact.
