Embossing machine.

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

I just bought on ebay 2 custom made embossing wheels. They look damn good but my problem is that they are oversized compared to those made by tippman and tandy.

The biggest one as a 3" diameter and is 1 1/2" wide. So, it wont fit on the old speedy embossing nor the new one.

I would like to know if the tippman embossing will accept such a huge wheel? I just send them my question.

And you? Do you you know another embossing machine that i can buy in the US or Canada? I dont have sales tax number so i cannot buy for weaver.

Here's a picture of the biggest one.

Many thanks.

I don't think that thing would fit on my Tippman embosser. But the only way to know for sure is to test it.

Why can you not buy from Weaver? I have purchased several items (including the imbosser) from them (too many if the truth be known) and I do not have a Tax ID # but do have a bus. Lic. This is all that is required.

The dies are probably made for a Randall embosser (1-5/8" bore). The Randall dies are larger for longer repeats and can emboss deeper the hand crank machines. If its a 1" bore, it might be an old Russle or McMillan embosser die, but 3" OD sounds like a Randall.

Thank you every one for your answers!

@Hobby Tom

Did not know that weaver was accepting bussinnes license. I migth go and get one from Québec governement.

@Campbell Randall

Thank's. It is still possible to buy some Randall embosser?

And, i just received a e-mail from Tippman. They are saying that if i can send them the 3" wheel, they will make a bottom roll to accomodate my big roll.
