I really like making my holsters with the Texas Lonestar brand on them. So I decided to try my hand at making them a little easier to do with this embossing tool I fabricated. Still have some fine tuning to do with it...but not too bad for my first try.



This is before the tool....

That's mighty good. It sure does the job nicely. Thanks for the pics. Do you have any pictures of how you made them?

I'm working on this holster for my 5 1/2" barreled six guns. It should be nice after the finishing steps are done.

No pics...here's the wordy version.... I took two holesaw pieces the diameter I wanted, ground off the teeth, assembled them on the holesaw arbor. Then filled the inside 2 rings with JB Weld and then pressed in the 1/4" letter/number stamps, let dry.

Next found a piece of PVC tubing coupler the right size (1 1/8th) and likewise filled it up with JB Weld and let dry. Then marked the points of a star on the end of the PVC piece and used a hacksaw to crosscut the star points into the PVC and JB Weld. Took a knife and removed the rest of the star and then it's done.

It's not perfect...but I know it would cost Thousands$$$$$ to have a professional tool made...so this will do for me.

There are people using 3D printers to make a heavy plastic stamp, that can be had for less than $50. But that doesn't show the sheer genius and MacGuyvering that you put into your own brand. Not perfect? Rustic and charming, and well done.

Thanks, Rick. That's pure ingenuity to make that. I like it a lot. I had a hand filed bolt for my makers mark for years before I finally got one. It was nothing compared to yours. Looks great.  Cheesy Cool

Thanks for the compliment, it means a lot to me you guys who know way more than I.

Here's the near finished holster... only a few more steps left.
