I foolishly missed out on an old set of rune stamps a while back and now have a use for some - has anyone got a set tucked away somewhere that they don't use and would like to convert into folding money?

I'm happy to pay the shipping cost from anywhere in the world plus whatever you think is a fair price.

Just drop me a PM or leave a note here and I'll be in touch very soon.

Thanks guys,

Ray

Hi Ray...Found them:-)

I use to buy from them when I lived in Sweden, I know for sure they speak english cuz I always called them when I wanted stuff. This place have some of the best prices on Jiffy and double cap rivets too if someone uses them, rivets in danish is - nitter.

Whatever you do, don't buy them from Skindhuset. IMO, their customer service is terrible (when I ask for a price with shipping before you charge my card, I mean I want a price with shipping BEFORE YOU CHARGE MY CARD), they didn't tape the box holding the runeset shut inside the exterior box, they constructed the outside box from corrugated cardboard, and failed to tape all the corners. Can you see where this is going? When my set came, I had 13 out of the 24 runes I was supposed to have, because the constructed box had broken and the interior box had fallen open, letting the runes fall out and get lost.

Luckily, I was able to find a set on eBay, but I'm seriously pissed about how much I spent to get only half the runes I was entitled to, and not even get an apology from the jerk at Skindhuset who refused to tell how he'd shipped it so I could go looking for the package at my end. I finally stabbed in the dark and asked at the post office. For whatever reason, they had failed to send me a card to tell me there was a parcel.

Yeah, still bitter, can you tell?

This time 'round, Ray's getting 'em from me: I happened to have had a set collecting dust (didn't use it much). I promise it will leave here well packed and in an appropriate envelope. It's sad when businesses don't ship things well, when you've paid them for the product and don't get what you paid for!

Now if I can only sell that hand press I've got sitting around here...

I have never order by mail from skindhuset… but I
have bought a lot of stuff from them as their shop is like 1 km away from my
workshop. Their shop service is great although their prices are kind of
steep.

Ill be sure to make a remark about their service towards you.

Thanks for all the help guys - I now have a set of runes coming my way... Thanks a bunch Holly!

For anyone who hasn't got one, IMHO Holly's unwanted press is absolutely the best way to use 3D stamps and alphabet stamps. Perfect impressions every time and no problem lining things us. I already have one or I'd be negotiating!

I use mine for keyfobs, guitar straps with names on, belts - in fact any time I need to use letter stamps. Works like a charm as long as you set it up right.

Thank you, but you needn't bother. I made enough remarks of my own via email.

Ray, thanks for the press on the press :lol: I wish I could sell it, because it's honestly a shame just sitting here. I even have a UPS packing/shipping outlet nearby I could use for it. There was a little interest after I put it in the Marketplace section, but it drizzled out. Ah well, the right time will come.

I'm really surprised you have still got it, Holly. They are quite expensive if you buy them new from TLF and having had one for a while now I wouldn't want to be without it. Okay, because it takes a few minutes to set up each time I mostly tend to use it for short 'production' work when I have say ten or more items to produce - keyrings are a great example. I have made a template that sits on the bottom plate and I just drop the keyfob blank into place and pull down the lever - simple as that.

The reason it works better than a simple mallet or maul is becuse you can set up the depth you want to emboss to. This means you don't get the square impressions from the corners of the 3D stamp or letters.

For anyone who is considering buying one take a tip and invest an extra couple of dollars in a set of adapters so you can use all the different sizes of Tandy stamps. It makes the press a lot more versatile.

The downsides are worth considering too (before anyone thinks I'm on a retainer for TLF or Holly is paying me for marketing copy):

1) Weight - this is a heavy chunk of metal and shipping isn't cheap

2) Safety - The handle isn't supported/locked whilst in the upright position and can fall on your head if you aren't careful. It is worth mentioning that you won't let this happen twice unless you are completely stupid like me... eventually you will invest in a small length of leather strap fitted with a snap to keep it in place. Doh!

3) Set up - This isn't even slightly difficult but it has to be done each time you change the weight of the leather you are using.

4) Space - You will need to fix the press to a chunk of wood or preferably to your workbench and it takes up some space (not much but if you only have a very small area in which to work it may be an issue.

I think that is it! I am a total convert and if anyone has any questions about setting up or using one of these I'm happy to help out.
