I've been going in a loop, trying to learn about manufacturing things from metal by stamping them. At this article, there's no information at all, so I click on "forming", which takes me to the article on metalworking. In the contents, I see "sheet metal forming", which takes me to merely a list. On that list is "stamping", so I select it -- and I'm back here.

As far as I can tell you've got a set of articles that spend more space listing things that reference back and forth than explaining any of those things! (talk) 07:42, 9 November 2010 (UTC) not logged in because the login function isn't working

Yeah, you are right, it's not laid out real well right now. Probably the articles you are looking for are punching and shearing (metalworking). Wizard191 (talk) 15:16, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Proposed merger with Stamping press[edit]

Proposed merger with Stamping press article because of close relationship and both are short articles.Phmoreno (talk) 03:27, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Stamping is a weak article. Way too much on the history of lubrication. I added a Wikilink to progressive stamping, a related technique. Stamping press doesn't have any sources. There's a series of articles called "Stamping 101" at [1], from the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association. Those are good sources for the basics. Summarizing the "Stamping 101" series would be a good way to improve the article. John Nagle (talk) 18:12, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Added one-line descriptions for each of the stamping operations, with a link to "Stamping 101". John Nagle (talk) 18:35, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Took out most of the long section on the history of synthetic stamping lubricants. Somewhat promotional, and far too specific for this article. Now we need some pictures of stamped objects. John Nagle (talk) 18:46, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
