STEEL LETTERS AND FIGURES. Name Stamps are essential, both in Mechanics' and Manufacturers' outfits. Manufactured goods should be plainly stamped with maker's name and address, and tools should be stamped so that they may he identified if lost or stolen. The owner's name on a tool may not prevent its being stolen, but a "tramp" will usually think twice before he steals a tool with the owner's name plainly stamped on it.
The greatly increased demand for Steel Letters and Figures (more especially in connection with typewriter work) has led to the designing of improved machinery for their manufacture, and a consequent lowering in price.
The Solid Steel Stamps, Fig. 989, have to be made by hand.
