Since these stencil machines are used at all military repair facilities, I think this probably qualifies being in this forum.

Picked up locally a Marsh “Model R” 1” Stencil Machine.
Deal included a 50lb case of Marsh oil board for stencil use.
Been wanting one of these for years but I refused to pay the high prices they normally bring.
Came across a steal of a deal.
Seller didn’t know what he had. Just wanted it gone.

It’s definitely seen lots of use, but works great and isn’t trashed like some on eBay.
Every character cuts clean and crisp.

We had every size stencil machine at our units hanger and I got pretty good at making them.
Still use them.

They’re very heavy and very well made.
Built like a tank.

It needs a good cleaning throughout and some TLC
The rubber foot pads need replaced due to age.
Pics are right after I brought it home.
It’s cleaned up nicely on the outside since then.
Will clean the inside and oil the required places/parts.
Already cut some stencils I’ve needed.

i have been trying to buy one of those machines for a while. would be much cheaper to pay for them to be made. just need the stencils for the air cover on my LMTV marking the oil and trans fill, and trans dipstick. Neat machine. If someone else is offering stencils for sale let me know. the only person on here that i have seen talked about does not appear to be in business anymore.

This person has stencils for several different vehicles. Not sure if he is on SS or not. Purchased a set for my FMTV. Cheaper for me then trying to find the equipment and Oilboard to make them.

The guys who make these for sale are much better set up.
They usually have all 4 of the different size machines and can handle most all requests.

I have used him for stencils for my LMTV. He was awesome and did some extra ones that were not in his LMTV kit. Pricing was good and stencils arrived quickly

I would love to have the three other size machines but that will probably never happen.

I had been looking for the 1” machine at a decent price for years.
1” is the size I need most often.

It is nice to be able to make them now.
