Default John Deere Stencil

Hi Guys,

I am in the process of restoring a 1 1/2 hp John Deere E gas engine and I was owndering if anyone makes a stencil to paint the John Deere name back on the engine?

I have had stencils made before and what I have done is have the graphic shop cut out the name and remove the letters and stick the outside of what is normally thrown away and paint over this with my airbrush.

I thought before I go to all that work I would see if anyone out there has already made a pattern.

Thanks

Todd E. Hasse

The graphic shop should be able to supply a film that they can cut with your design called something like a masking film or stencil film.
It's a lot easier to pull off then the standard vinyl.

I have gotten decals from Hit and Miss Ent. and they worked well. One thing I wish I would have done differently with them would be to trim some of the excess clear part of the decal.

Some time ago I restored some of my John Deere Corn shellers. It was a John Deere NO. 1B, and the lettering was in yellow. I could not get any stencils that was even close to what i needed. The place were I work, we use to silk screen every name, number and letter on the units that we manufactured. Our silk screens were made of a special piece of a fabic stretched very tightly in a wood frame, like a picture frame. I traced out the lettering and had the shop make me a silk screen for the sheller. I lay the screen on the sheller about 1/8 above the work put some yellow paint on the screen and take a hand squeege and push the paint thru were the lettering is on the screen. The lettering comes out just like the original. I have used the decals also on my engines, have not made a silk screen for the engines. JR

I think KK Antique Tractor was the name of the place I got the decals from for my engine. They are out of Indiana. Very nice die cut vinyl that replicates the look of the original stenciled lettering. They may be willing to sell you a "reverse" decal to use for stenciling. If nothing else, you could buy one of theirs to lay out a stencil on cardstock. Good luck!

A friend of mine contacted a graphics guy who was able to recreate the old 1940's logo and the text surrounding it, in 2 sizes, and cut that as a stick-on stencil he could paint through. It looks GREAT on his tractor. Email me as sam at forbin dot net if you would like me to find his contact info. He is in Iowa, I can't remember where.
