General Discussion / number letter stamp other uses
« Last post by skipskip on July 13, 2024, 01:51:37 PM »
I have quite few stamp letter and number punch sets that are missing too many to be useful as sets.

What can the odd punches be used for?

Is the steel anything special?

Thanks

Skip

Welcome!  I live in Texas.  Missouri City just outside of Houston. Papaw lived down the road from me about 25 miles or so. I'm the uncle everybody calls to ask about gardening. I like shopping estate sales for tools.

Saw this hasn't been posted to in a while. Hope it is ok if I throw some out there.

I hope all are well.

I have some more.  Will post tomorrow or in the future!

I'm a refugee from the garage gazette. Looks like y'all have quite the nifty little community here. Busted down with the ban hammer from ch3

Thanks for having me.

Not really a collector, more of a user of tools and such. I'm the neighbor they bring stuff to get looked at and possibly repaired. Kids and grand kids bring their broken stuff too. Some can be worked on, some can be fixed, and others get repurposed or just thrown away. I try to have patience. My wife reminds me of the stories my siblings and parents told of me tearing stuff up as a youngster. So I try to understand why stuff gets torn up. I will say, I know why my dad and grandfather were always so salty now. I just couldn't figure it out back then.

I hope I can add to the site with good info and I hope all are well!

The date is 1938 but it doesn’t seem to appear in the ‘38 catalog. Probably special made particularly if it doesn’t have a part number.

I read where at the initials  stood for the acronym:  Every Morning Fixit,  probably not uncommon with the level of development in 1912.    Nice wrench, wonder how many owners it has had in the past 100 years?
