How do you put numbers in your right side plate before you park it? I only have hand stamps and the frame is riveted.

I found a sqaure bucking bar and shimmed it up with little peices of flat iron then put a piece of leather on the anvil and it was solid as a rock and didn't hurt a thing. Hotch

I use a piece of scrap steel clamped in place as a guide, with masking tape on the steel to mark the proper spacing. Hit it hard and hit it ONCE. Chances are if you try again you will get a double strike. It is very difficult to line up properly to hit it again and have it look good.

I just put my completed receiver in a heavy vise or on a concrete floor to do the stamping. Make sure your setup is stable and hit the stamp square.
