So I've gotten into stamping ball markers and I did some random wedges and some custom Central Michigan ones for my cousin.  I read the article on golf digest (https://www.golf.com/gear/wedges/2019/10/02/callaway-wedge-artist-anthony-taranto-secrets-customize-clubs/) and I saw that it mentioned a magnetic anvil or at least a very large magnet.  I went to the website mentioned and I saw nothing that looked like the picture or matched the desciption.  Obviously, I'm not trying to break the bank here, but does anyone have any suggestions or ideas to make or get the magnetic anvil?  I currently use a 1" stainless steel plate as my anvil from clubstamping.com.  

Here's a little bit of the handiwork so far.  The wedges got a final acetone wipe to clean them up.  Also, digging out the paint in those small areas was a pain in the ass.  A small needle seemed to work best, but the scratches bothered me. So any helpful tips, tricks, etc. would be most welcome! Thanks!

For the paint fill did you try soaking it in something like Tal strip or Citristrip?  I usually coat that on and then let it soak.  For the tiny spots use an old toothbrush or a toothpick.  If you want to avoid scratches stay away from sharp metal.  I have one of my kids old battery toothbrushes that seems to work pretty good at hitting the tiny spots.

I haven't seen anything about a magnetic vise and also couldn't find much online in the 2 mins I searched for it.  I primarily use Copper, Brass and Aluminum for stamping.  Ball marks and ball mark repair tools.  Since none of those metals are magnetic I've never looked in to it.  I use a piece of rail road track as an anvil and if I really don't want the piece to move around I'll just use gorilla tape and make a circle with the sticky side out and tape it down.

If you really get in to wedges you need one of these from Ricky Johnson!

I've seen the Ricky Johnson thing before, but I definitely won't do enough of them to justify the $300 price tag.  I used acetone and citrustrip.  I tried toothpicks and a toothbrush. Maybe I just didn't leave it on long enough. How long do you leave it on for?

Probably 5-10 mins, but it's been a while.  If it's real bad you can try the back side of an X-Acto knife.  We use those a lot at work to remove stubborn paint.  It will still scratch if you hit metal but it works pretty well.  

You can also try filing down the handle side of the tooth brush to a point.  The plastic point should still give you a rigid point, but less likely to scratch the metal.

For the magnetic anvil, I believe your looking for an electric magnet. Looks like block of steel with a switch on the side. Easy to make too. They can take a beating.

Try double sided tape, works very well (4 bucks). Just stick it to your anvil, place the club on top.

Nice job on the wedges⛳👍🇺🇸

Reach out to a company called MagSwitch tell them what you are looking for.

IMO, best way to stamp hard steel base with club head removed from shaft. Use double sided tape on steel base stick club head to tape. I never have had any issue just don't hit the stamp to hard. Practice on some junk clubs, salvation army etc.

Have fun ....Good stamping.

If you want a high powered magnet, go to a scrap yard or a pawn shop or antique store and find an old microwave from the 80’s or early 90’s. The magnets in those are what lots of the vans use and they cost virtually nothing. All the fancy contraptions and devices and an old microwave magnet works better than all of them.

Agree nice job and the dbl sided tape maybe your best bet for an inexpensive jig.

Thanks for the tip! Can those magnets handle the pounding from the sledge?
