embossing press attach stamp and tray

Recommended Posts

Just got an embossing press but wondering how I can attach my stamps to it, there’s one hole but it’s much bigger than my stamp thread 

 

also do you guys have any good ways to make the process repeatable? It comes with some magnets but I think I’ve seem a track system that slides in and out. Seems a little better 5E2CF6C1-BDC2-4B11-A788-915ED550696A.thumb.jpeg.8e098806c54c978c840f78237f47177e.jpeg

When you say repeatable, I am guessing you mean along a line or being able to accurately place the stamp where you want it. All I can think of, is an edge guide of sort for the straight line, and carefully judging the distance between the last impression and the impression you are now making.

As for repeatable placement, such as in the same spot on identical items, I would make up a jig, so that you place each item in the exact same spot.

A jig might be as simple as a piece of masking tape applied to the press bottom plate, then draw a line on the tape to assist you in placing each item in the same position.

thanks I'll try making a jig like that. was thinking maybe magnets too to side against but not sure if they would move.. 

 

how do I attach my stamp to it to heat it up though. the instructions say use high temp tape but that seems a little crazy if I'm heating git up to 320* and annoying when I change stamps

Some of the rare earth neodymium magnets hold pretty well.

The main things to remember with these strong magnets, be very careful if you have a pacemaker, and place them carefully by not allowing them to clank together or to a metal surface because they will crack In half very easily

@Treesner if you are not fairly mechanically minded I am going to be honest and tell you you got the wrong press I think!! Here in the sellers video you can see one with a slide in one which would be a lot quicker and easier than bolting your stamps in individually.

 

That said... I don't know what stamps you are wanting to use and whether they are all the same size etc. I have a lot of different embossing machines and a lot of different types of stamps etc and although any one of them could do most of what the others do, none of them have all of the best features in the one machine. If I had the machine you have there I would start by using that bolt hole to attach a slide grabber that I could then remove the stamp holding block from easily. The machine with the best grabber is this one in the first picture and the reason I like it best is that the spring piece at the front allows me to slide the stamp block in without having to loosen or tighten any screws. (Screws often get over tightened and get stripped all to often.)Notice that on this one the bottom piece is able to slide in and out if required and can be taken off as well as shown in the next picture. Also note that this bottom plate I have put in 2 screws to enable me to put in whatever cardboard jig to hold the product piece in place that I want. That is one way of getting stamps to be repeatedly in the right place and the next time as well.

This picture shows that the bottom plate can be removed and this enables me to use other systems for where I may need more depth for instance.

Here I have 3D printed  a block that allows me to do a wide variety of embossing s on our product box lids.

Another one of my favourite embossing methods I came up with is what I use for stamping my belt lengths. This method uses the heat tape to attach your stamp but I have put the sizes all onto same length steel boxing. With the holding block for it I have placed within it a 1/8" long magnet that holds the size boxes in tightly and with the aid of a pair of pliers I can rip them out hot between sizes and change to the next.DSC07976_resize.JPG

SO.....I would think about making a holder that that is easy to slide in and out and encase a magnet. When you get any new stamps attach them to a steel backing and you can just then click them in to place.Remember to allow room to lever the stamp out though. I think that should get you some ideas that could help.

Do you have the same machine as this? I doubt it could be bought but some like myself could make it fairly easily and an engineering shop could do it for sure. Design wise it depends on the machine and what type of stamps you want to use as well. My favourite stamp holder is shown in these first 2 pictures and you can see that it uses a dovetail to fit into the spring grabber. This one allows me to use spacers and a couple of 1/4" bolts to tighten up onto the stamp or letter set whichever the case. Back of the holding block showing the dovetail-

Another embossing machine I use has a similar dovetail but it gets tighten up with a bolt and is actually a little more trouble to make.

If you are using a Kingsley letter set like in this pic below their machines have a wide variety of holders and they are also held in place but a couple of tension springs and a guide strip.

This is a single line holder that I use a lot for embossing initials onto the ring boxes I make a lot of.

If you want to give me some pictures of your machine and an idea of the variety and type of stamps you want to do I could Cad up a drawing perhaps that may help you better.
