Dog Tag Engraving Jig

Had to make a way to hold more than one at a time. Came up with this. The tag sits exactly flush with the top and the height is .25 in. Works perfectly! I should have engraved the Height = 0.25” though. I guess I can’t think of everything.

Very nice jig! Is it lined with cork sheeting?

Yes. The cork is just the right thickness to make the tags flush with the top. They’re actually 4 inch square pieces of cork with adhesive on one side. I cut those separately and then placed them in the jig.

Awesome. I have those same cork squares, which I bought to use on the back of tile coasters. Wonderful idea.

Can I ask where you purchased the dog tags? I bought a couple but never could get an engrave to show up.

Where did you get the cork? And a brand? Did you cut the cork out to fit in each jig?

It’s from Amazon. They are 4 inch squares with one sticky side. I could cut 4 little rectangles out of each one to go into the jig. Here’s the link.
