Meet Mike Scott and wish him a happy retirement. After 38 years, Mike is retiring. If you have purchased a Model 40B, Model 23 Type Holder or any other press, Mike did the machining and most of the assembly. His function was to run and organize the press department. Making sure the other machinists were working on the proper parts to keep our quick deliveries. All presses, platforms, type holders, and the special fixtures was his responsibility. Keeping stock of all the inventory was another function. Giving purchasing lists of items such as nuts & bolts to casting, was under his control. If sales could not help solve a problem with the machine, you may have talked to Mike, to get your machine up and running.
Mike liked rebuilding the machines that he built.. My favorite saying to him was, here’s another one that was needs your help. It’s only 25 years old, couldn’t you have made it a little better? He’d respond I’ll fix it to last another 25 years!
His work ability was tremendous. Always making sure that product was 100% (or more). Working with engineering, suggesting changes or procedures to make and produce the best product. Mike always stepped up, when we needed parts made or assemble a machine in a rush. Especially when making modifications to allow customers parts to fit. Thanks Mike, it is appreciated!
We wish Mike and his wife the best in their retirement. We’re sure he’ll stop in to make sure we are doing it properly!!
As we prepare the office for the new year, it‘s always interesting to reflect on past years. Looking through an old file drawer, we noticed the many changes thru the years in the catalogs. (more…)
With the first year of the new decade coming to a close, we have much to be thankful for here at Numberall. We were able to help many new and repeat customers in 2020, meet their metal marking needs, and fulfill various custom orders, including this Model 50P we modified to solve a customer’s clearance issue. Like many, we are excited to see what 2021 has in store. (more…)
Numberall has many choices for the Model 23P Type Holder. Not just character size and capacity, but we can modify the Model 23P for just about any type of marking. (more…)
Numberall manufacturers identification equipment for all industries. Here’s a custom setup for marking coins. Using the Model 301 hand operated cylindrical marking press to mark around the edge of the coin. We used our standard adjustable holding fixture and added adjustable stops and non-marring clamp faces. Designed for a range of coins from 3/4″ to 2-1/4″ diameter, with a thickness of 3/32″ to 1/4″.
This customer uses our Model 23P Type Holder and standard steel type to put a special message around the coin.
This setup has oversize endplates for additional clearance. We also, made a series of riser blocks, to fit under the fixture to raise the coins within the adjustment of the sliding head. This is needed when going from small diameters to large diameters. Our Model 301-A can be used for this application.
If a serial number is needed, we recommend our Model 50P. An option would be to extend a frame leg and make a slot to hold type or a special logo. Various other styles of marking devices are available and can be customized to suit the application.
We can also supply other fixtures for products that require information to be stamped around the part. Made in the USA!
