For marking metals and other solid materials. Produced from high grade quality steel and heat treated to give accurate impressions. All too often these days tools are stolen, sometimes entire workshops are cleared. We are frequently asked to quote for insurance claims when a workman's whole collection has gone missing in the middle of the night. According to the police most of these tools, if recovered at all, are totally unidentifiable. They recommend at least marking tools with your post code, if not your name and address. Larger machines and power tools should also be marked and a log kept of all model and serial numbers. Workshop number and letter punches are supplied in sets in a plastic box. Letter punches contain 27 characters A to Z and &. The number punch sets contain nine numbers 0 to 9 (inverting 6 to get a 9).

Good, but sizing description inaccurate.Bought number and letter sets in 3mm and 4mm sizes. The 3mm punches produce characters 4mm high, and the 4mm punches produce letters 5mm high. A pity that I need characters 3mm high to fit limited space, and the 1mm punches are out of stock. Apart from the incorrect sizing, the products themselves are highly satisfactory. unlike Screwfix punches where I had to grind away the belled-out metal displaced by the character forming operation to make the business-end cross-section square to use in an alignment jig.
