Looking For A Particular Stamp

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a specific stamp. Has anyone seen one listed any place. It is not in the current craftool listings. It is very close if not exact to one used for a border on the holster on the cover of Packing Iron and again on Page 120 of Packing Iron. I know they are or were available from some body. I have a couple of [pictures of recently made holsters with the same border. it is the stamp used to create the border on the holster in the two pictures below. Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like an old Y-653(small) or Y-654(larger) from Tandy before they were the evil empire.

They have long dropped that. There is one on ebay right now at this link:

Studio-N thanks for the try. I have 634 and 635, they do not come out quite the same.

Studio-N was close, I think it's the 652, can't see one on Ebay though :dunno:

Thanks, but none of those give the right impression, they are designed to make pedals of a flower. The closest I have found is F990 or F991 with the bottom 2 pedal or what ever ground off.

It is close, but the two 'petals' to the side don't stand so close to the centre one on the F990, They poke out the side more.

Must be some-one out there that has one just like it, just a case of waiting until they come along ;)

looks like it could be #844 made by McMillen

Do you have a picture of the #844 stamp? I can't find one on line.

Wrightcamp, that does look close. Although the one in the border looks a little more tear drop shaped for the arms or pedal or what ever you want to call them. Now if I could only find one.

Hi camano ridge

The phone # for McMillen Tool Co. in the 2014 Buyers Guide from Proleptic, Inc. is 573 374 7880

I have some stamps I bought from them over 45 years ago that I am sure pleased with.
