    In a sarcastic tone....... let me know how that turns out. These things are like hens teeth. I have been looking for several months with no luck. I refuse to belive that they are not manufactured any more. Some one must have a led?...........

    Tell me about it, I sold the last one I had before going overseas. Now can't find a replacement.

    If you don't need bunches of them, or even if you do, you can stamp the number into some soft metal, put some release on it, make a few reverse positives with some bondo, put release on them and apply them when the time is right.

    I seem to remember someone saying that metal casting suppliers sold the actual reversed character label makers.

    3/4" tape and 1/4" letters, that does not look like it will meet the requirement.
