    Nice and simple. What did you work out for the spacing measurement?

    I made a hand-held stamp alignment jig out of aluminum and put a couple magnets in it to help hold the stamp during setup. (Still have to hold it when striking, of course.)

    I really like your setup for using the X travel for spacing.
