There is a German made stamping press (Praegnant -> from Praegen, to stamp)
which relies on an electric type holder, held in place by springs. Cover is
held at at slight angle back from vertical, and typeholder hits it dead on.
Wonderful except that one can't use dies with it which are larger than
type. No idea on cost.

hold 12 to 16 pt. type and be heated, say by a soldering iron element with
a rheostat to control the heat.
