Purchase the entire system or choose any of the components in order to complement the equipment you already have on hand!

Handle Insertion Press

Handle Insertion Press

This machine will significantly reduce the time required for handle-installation while assuring that the flat front of every handle is in perfect alignment with the front of the mount. The handle-holder and work-table stops are designed to automatically square the flat side of the handle with the front of the stamp. Stamps of mixed mount- and handle-sizes may be assembled with tremendous efficiency. Table-stops and handle-holder may be set and locked for even greater efficiency on long runs of identical stamps. The built-in counter indicates the quantity of stamps that have been assembled, and the work-light fully illuminates the work-table. A one-year limited warranty is included.
