DIY Hot Leather Stamp

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I'm looking to make a stamping machine from a 1 ton Arbour press and a brass stamp. I would like to heat the stamp and regulate the tempature however not sure what I could use to do this. Any ideas?

Ian Armitage has a video showing how he uses a heat gun and IR thermometer to manually heat and regulate a stamp. This is what I would recommend for someone who doesn't have experience or extensive research into building automated heating systems. When buying one from a reputable source you pay for a lot more than convenience.

Here are a couple of threads, maybe reach out to them to see if they can point you in the right direction.

 

There is another thread that I know of on here but for the life of me I can't find it. I also think he started selling the unit, but he did go through what he did to accomplish it.

I ended up getting a great deal on a Kwikprint 86A at an industrial auction and repurposed the press for rivets and snaps. It worked great though.
