1) This is the part of my vice I use to lay the club’s face down on. My vice is lag bolted to my workbench and it ain’t gonna move! You can use any solid surface – even the deck of a workbench – as long as it’s steady.

2) Here are the tools of the trade! Two-sided tape (aka – grip tape), masking tape, a REGULAR hammer (not a 4-5 lb. hand sledge hammer), and the stamps.

3). Close up of the box of stamps. I bought mine at an Ace Hardware for about $25.00. Mine are 1/8 inch letters.

4) I place two strips of two-sided tape on the vice and two strips of two-sided tape on the face of the club. The tape not only holds the club in place, it also provides a bit of padding between the vice and the clubface.

5) Stick the face of the club to the vice. Notice I do not have the right edge of the anvil part of the vice up against the inside edge of the club. I have left a space there. If I did…when I hammered in the letters, the edge would mark up the inside of the club where the hosel begins.

6) Place a piece of regular masking tape on the club where you want to stamp the letters. I guess you could use two-sided tape as well, but I don’t……

7) Hold the stamp in place and TAP the stamp about 5-7 times with the hammer. You are not trying to drive the stamp into the metal, only the tape.

8. After TAPPING the stamp a few times with the hammer, you will make an indention in the tape that will allow you to check positioning of the letter and allow you pick up & put down the stamp in the same spot.

9) If the letter is where you want it….put the stamp back in place and hit the stamp a bit harder. I hit the stamp about 4-8 times, depending on what it takes to make a good indention in the club. As you can see in this picture, the tape was clearly cut by the stamp and you can see the metal.
