making a good impression
Been thinking about my upcoming stamping session. Since my new coins will have a larger, more detailed image - a simple hammer blow won't quite cut it. As I have some other elaborate metal forming projects in mind, I've been (tool frenzy) shopping for a good deal on the best option that will work well with the minting process and won't limit me too much for other projects due to size. Where else can you get a 12 ton H-frame hydraulic press that costs just over 100 bucks, weighs almost 50 pounds, and FedEx shipping is only $6.99?... Harbor Freight.
