      I use a 3/8" flat washer.  Has room for initials  date number or what you want to use for idenity..
      Hole in center to use what ever you want to secure it to oven I've used beaded key chains.

      Or if your too cheap like me keep your eye out for scrap sheets of stainless steel. Where? I'm curently using the housing salvaged from a neighbor's dead toaster oven. Cut to any shape/size with tin snips. Drill hole but hold it with pliers cause if it grabs as it breaks thru it can cut you as it spins. Place on soft wood board and use letter set (<$5 at Harbor Freight) to stamp whatever. They always curl but they're easily reflattened with a scrap 2X4 and a wack of the hammer. I never thought of the idea to use a hog ring but love it, especially the price.
      Feels like I've made them for half the troops in the council. I make extras and hand them out at our cooking contests so every troop goes home with the right pot lid. The boys can always use a flat blade screwdriver to create the letters if needed.

      Ref. ID tags:
      If you are interested in making your own tags and tags for your fellow DO cooks; go to http://www.unline.com/ and look for brass disks.  They have holes already punched in them.  You can get a set of stamps at Harbor Freight to stamp the disks.  Home Depot and Lowes (or any key shop) can supply the rings.  I use Hog Rings and a Hog Ring Tool to attach the disks to the handle of my DOs.  You will need a piece of flat steel to stamp the disks and a heavy hammer.  Be aware that the disks may bow a little when they are hammered.  Have fun.  I have made a bunch for the scouters in my area.

      A few years ago, I bought some Dutch Oven name tags from a group in California. I would like some more, but don't remember who I ordered them from. They were round. adm stamped wiht my initials, and a number. Does anyone know where i can buy some more?
