    Hi, I am new to the forum, and I want to make a makers marking punch with my name for marking my wooden planes. I have some steel letter stamps (1/8″), and have been marking my hand made wooden planes with them one letter at a time but would like to make a single stamp that combines all the letters of my name to do this.

    If I could get reverse letters, I could stamp the letters directly into the steel to make my makers punch.
    Since I don’t have reverse letters…I was thinking I could stamp my letters into a piece of steel to make a die that has my name…then stamp a hot piece of steel into it to form the makers punch. Will that work?

    I am not a blacksmith, but have fashioned a forge of sorts using fire bricks and a weed burner torch.
