Rocker stamp mounts can significantly improve the imprint quality of large RIBtype® stamps. For large imprints or marking on uneven surfaces, such as corrugated cartons, rocker stamps make a great impression.
Made of sturdy red oak, our wooden rocker mounts are excellent for making large impressions. Wood rockers come standard with a "knob" handle (shown), but an aluminum "G" handle is recommended for mounts 2" x 5" and larger as it applies pressure over a larger area for better imprints. "I" handles are also available for any size.
Our aluminum rocker mounts include a "G" handle and are made entirely of metal excepting the RIBbase, sponge, and protective weatherstripping. Aluminum rockers have a radius of approximately 5" with type.
Rib Direction: We recommend and, unless directed otherwise, make all rocker stamps with the ribs running the same direction as the rocking motion. Running the ribs at a right angle to the rocking direction can result in ribs being spread apart and can cause 2-rib RIBtype® to fall out and make type, logos, or mats with several ribs difficult or impossible to insert.
Handles: For larger rocker mounts, an aluminum "G" handle (shown in picture to the right) provides a better imprint and reduces fatigue. It is available on wooden rockers at least 2" x 5" and is attached to the wood block by 4 screws. All aluminum rockers come with a "G" handle.
Wood Rocker Lengths: Standard wood rocker lengths (length of ribs in the curved direction) are 3", 4", 5", 6", and 8". 8" is the maximum length in the rocking direction. If greater lengths are required, we can make curved aluminum bases by quote.
Baselock®, Grip-line®, Sta-tite®, Dilok®, and various other brands of ribbed rubber type are compatible with RIBtype.
