Found this VW stamping tool in a box of NOS parts and Matra tooling I just acquired. I've never seen one before and wondering if anyone else has. Talking with some fellow enthusiasts and we believe it was used for stamping the lead seals that went through the throttle cable hole on factory reman engines.

Very cool.

Maybe also for the governor seal?

Yeah, that was also mentioned as well Everett. Not sure how it ended up in the stuff I got. I would assume this would be a tool only available to the people doing reman work for VW.

Can you fit a fingertip in there?

Heat it up and brand yourself with cool VW fingerprints! Smile

The wife has smaller fingers but for some reason wasn't keen on the idea. Laughing

I like that thing, maybe you can make some lead vw jewelry, or make mini emblems and sell them like Chiclets. Very Happy

Brian Holcomb (rip) had one of those. I always wanted it for doing the steering boxes. Wonder where it ended up?
