Angry routing smaller letters in wood

How or where can I get small letters (3/4"high) so I can route them in wood.

Hi Don. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

Not much help with your problem unfortunately. I have the sign making kit from Milescraft and it only has one size letters in it.

I've moved this to the sign making forum.... hopefully someone will offer up a solution.


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

You may want to check somewhere like Michaels or Hobby Lobby as they sell packs of small letters. Dave's signs only carries 1/2 or 1" on their webiste you may can contact them and see if they will do 3/4" for you as I know they cut them on a laser cutter. But if you need them quickly Michaels or Hobby Lobby is your better bet.

What you can also look for is "Directory Letters". These are used in the entrances of office buildings and professional offices. Amazon has them as do many other places. You may have to remove the pins on the back, depending on the style of directory board they are made for.
