Letter And Number Metal Stamping Set - Steel Bench Block - Hammer Kit

Evie's Tool Emporium is proud to introduce a new letter and number metal stamping set, steel bench block and hammer kit in our shop.

This is a great kit for anyone who wants to get into metal stamping. Included is one of our most popular letter and number stamp sets, a high quality steel bench block and hammer weighted just about perfectly for stamping.

The letter and number set is your choice of a 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm or 3mm. These are average letter size in height and is great for projects made from sheet and soft metals. These new stamps are made of tool steel which is then hardened to provide long life. The set includes all 26 letters of the alphabet in upper case, the numbers zero through 8, with the 6 doing double duty as the 9, and an ampersand.

The bench block is 4" x 4" x 3/4" and is made of tool steel which is ground flat, case-hardened and then polished. This block will leave a nice smooth finish and is perfect for stamping, flattening, laying out or chasing!

The hammer that is included in this kit will become one of your favorites. It weighs about 13 ounces and features a stainless steel head which is 3-3/8” long and has a flat face and a domed face which are approximately 1-1/16” x 7/8”. The head is apoxied to the wooden handle which is 12” long. The handle is fairly small around to offer a comfortable grip to all hand sizes and has plenty of length for “choking up” for increased control.

hello.. i've been looking for metal stamping sets for sometime now.. im thinking of trying out making personalized charms for baby showers.. i'd like to know if this is a really good set? have you personally tried working with this set? i have found ones that are not so good, that after a few hammers the letters flatten out.. i'm really interested.. do you ship internationally?
thanks in advance..
