Model 40B Lettering and Numbering Press

Due to the Model 40B's simple, quiet, manual operation, it can used in an office environment. Weighing only 40 pounds, it is portable enough so that it can be used anywhere.

  • Ideal for stamping Plates (Name, Motor, Social Security, Letter Box, House Bell, Dog Collar), Tags, & Keys
  • Can stamp aluminum, brass, and steel parts
  • For smaller characters, can stamp stainless steel parts
  • Various nests, strip holders, and slides can be custom manufactured for use with the Model 40B

To operate, simply rotate the 42 character dial to the desired character. Pull the operating handle and release; the tag is thereby stamped and the carriage table has moved to the next character. After reaching the end of a line, the carriage can be returned quickly to the starting point. Spacing is accomplished by a half stroke of the operating lever. The table moves up towards the dial via a heavy-duty rack & pinion drive.

An adjustable positive depth stop ensures consistent marking depth. No experience is necessary to operate this press. After a few minutes of practice, any operator can produce neat and even work.

Model 94 Lettering and Numbering Press

The Model 94 Heavy-Duty Press provides for indenting a variety of items with numbers and letters.

  • Mono Character Wheel
  • Automatic Character Spacing
  • Suited for stamping codes in which each part requires a different code
  • Easy to operate
  • Plates with unlimited height and up to 7" in width can be stamped 4-3/8" from the top of the plate
  • Various nests, strip holders, and slides can be custom manufactured for use with the Model 94

The operation of the Model 94 is very simple. Depth of impression is adjustable by a knurled nut on the bottom of the press. The table is adjusted up or down for the proper depth. The operator rotates the dial and pulls the lever to stamp the chosen character. Upon release of the lever the table spaces one character space. The procedure is repeated until the line is completed. A "half stroke" of the lever produces a blank space.

The table insert is moveable in or out without disturbing the clamped parts. Graduated lines are stamped into the left side of the table insert in 1/16" increments. An arrow is stamped into the guide rail to be used as a reference point.

There is a stop for setting the left hand margin. At the end of the line, the operator depresses the lever a half stroke. The table can then be moved to the right manually, against the margin stop.

One numbering wheel supplied with the machine with the character height of your choice (1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", or 3/8"). Additional wheels & spacing bars may be purchased at any time...
