*** Due to supply issues this item is on backorder until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience. ***
This Model 4 press comes with a 1/4" Character Size Marking Dial. The manual Model 4 marking press is for marking on tags and nameplates up to 4 inches deep and 8 inches wide. Can hold nameplate thickness of .012" to .093".
The Model 4 is our manual nameplate marking machine for stamping into name plates, metal tags, dog tags and ID tags. Model 4 accepts plates up to 4 inches deep. These machines mark evenly spaced letters and numbers that are accurately aligned and uniformly deep. Model 4's are available with sharp face character dials in a variety of sizes, please select which dial for purchase. All dials are interchangeable and fit both the Model 4. Additional dials can be purchased separately.
NAMEPLATES: The Model 4 can be used to mark on all materials - steel, brass, stainless steel**, aluminum, and some plastic. **Please note, SCHMIDT does not recommend the use of character sizes larger than 1/8" on stainless steel. While the dial is quite capable of creating an impression in this material, the pressure required to mark larger characters may cause the ram to deflect resulting in incomplete characters.
CHARACTER SPACING: Please familiarize yourself with our Character Spacing before purchasing.
Each letter or figure occupies a space as wide as it is high. Fractions (1/2, 1/4, etc.) are made with the characters in line - not above one another. A fraction will occupy a space equal to letters or figures of the same character size. 1/2 will take up the same space as 123.
For example, 1/8 inch characters are spaced 8 to the inch. Marking the word TEMPERED using an 1/8 inch character dial would create a mark that is one inch long. Marking the word TEMPERED with 3/32 inch characters would yield a mark 3/4 of an inch long.
