Etched Name Plate ?

Post  hydro9 on Thu 18 Aug 2016, 6:31 pm

Anyone found a reliable source for etched brass name plates. I need one for my recently completed 4" agricultural. Years ago there was a guy on this forum producing them, but he doesn't seem to have posted for years.

Hydro,
I have ordered a pair from this company, http://www.nameplates.wix.com/name-plates
Not received them yet so don't know the quality, but the draft design looked good.

I've been trying for a few weeks to contact Steamplates, without success. Mike King, from here, has contacted them for me, I did receive an email from them, but they, for some reason, didn't get my email.
I did contact Nameplates, yesterday and this morning I have heard from them. I'm waiting to find out what the nameplate will cost.

Hi Hydro,
Received my plates this morning, very pleased with them.
Cost was 83.00 inc recorded delivery.
They are on 3.2mm brass plate.
The background can be red or black, I chose black which I think is more in keeping with an Agricultural engine.
I have tried to show the relief in the second photo.

Etched Names Plates

Post  hydro9 on Sat 01 Oct 2016, 7:41 pm

Thanks to everyone who provided input.
In the end I went with http://www.nameplates.wix.com/name-plates. David Fieldhouse there couldn't have been more helpful.
Plate arrived today and it's superb. David's 'money back guarantee if you're not totally satisfied' is a winner and his prices are approx. 1/2 that of others that are referenced in this thread.

Hi guys,
Could any one help, wondering what size the name plate would be for 4" showmans?

Hi Bryan

It depends on the length of the name that you choose and what looks right on your engine, I made a card version first that when taped to the engine looked too small, I just made different sizes until I decided it looked right. Then I got some friends to concur that it looked the right size. My engine is called 'Julie P' and the name plate is 145mm x 35 mm.

I hope the above helps.
