    Looks pretty fancy and useful. Does the tool have different sized dies to accommodate various sizes of stamps? Can the stamping guide have spacing for two digit markings (stamp one digit at a time but make sure the side-by-side digit distances remain constant)? A few more photos would help. Thanks, Paul

    The metal square holder only holds one letter or number at a time but there are three holders different sizes.
    The round knob can be removed so a square block can be imprinted too. :O)

    Understood, yes, I really like this one.
    I agree with Paul, a nice enhancement would be to imagine something that allows to mark with accurate spacing between letters.
    Cheers !
