I have seen a Kinsley on ebay, and attempted to contact the seller to get more information to see if it could only do the very thin metal foil strips or if it could do thicker material as well. Never heard back so thanks for the tip as now I know that answer.
Have not tried the tracing and stamping over - I might have a go at that, but still don't fully trust my ability to get things all lined up.
I'll also check out the Infinity set-up, but sounds like price may be a problem for me as well.
I almost got a British WWII dog tag stamp machine which was very simple to use and very small - basically a wheel with the letters and a hand pull - and it automatically moved the material for correct spacing for the next letter or space. Very small, not at all like the huge dog tag "typewriter" machines used by the US military of the same era. But, after 2 years of bargaining for it, the old boy who had it passed away and his partner sold it to someone else. Oh well!
Thanks again folks!

I use small single letter hand stamps, and it's very difficult to get them lined up and spaced for a professional look and it's very time consuming.
Like u at first I struggled with the line up. Then I thought - "What this really needs is a guide" taped down a double thickness of cardboard and bumped raised portion of each stamp aginst it Just before striking.
