Stamps

New stamps! These will enable me to produce these designs in a more consistant manner...
Rings, pendants and some coin-like badges...
Cant wait to bang these out, but because of the embossed style ( or is it debossed??)-that is, raised lettering and sunken background, it requires heaps of metal displacement. Which means heaps of force.
More than I can generate with one arm and a large hammer. Which means using Johnny The Press.
But, I have to engineer some way of holding these guys in the ram of the press. Which means making stuff on a lathe. Which I dont have. Are you feeling my pain? Does anyone get me and my 19th century problems??
