Steel Stamp
« on: September 22, 2013, 02:23:52 PM »
A friend asked if I could make him a stamp with his log to brand some parts he makes whilst hot, he provided the artwork and I made this -



This is what it does on hot steel plate -



I'm quite pleased with the results, I prototyped in aluminium then went straight to the finished item in one multi-pass operation starting with a .1mm cut then .2mm per pass to the finished depth of .9mm,

Cool! What type of steel did you use to machine the stamp? And did you do any sort of hardening to it after machining?

It was some general purpose tool steel I had in stock for making pins & punches, machined in it's fully annealed state then hardened and tempered to around 65 Rockwell C.
It was nice to have a use for my new (to me) heat treatment furnace, I really need to finish fixing that furnace door!  :-)

Thanks Hood, I was very pleasantly surprised at the fine detail when I zoomed into the photo.
Graham manufactures and sells traditional gentlemen's shaving equipment, the brand for his in-house products is Hellrazors and he wanted to mark the Sheffield Steel brackets while they were still hot from the furnace,
Regards,
