I just purchased a Scott SM 500 without engraver fonts. I would like to know if I can use other brand font sets in it. I seem to find alot of New Hermes fonts on ebay but no Scott.
Just make sure you get a holder for the letters.
Most of the commercial fonts are interchangeable. But in the worst case, you would just need to make or buy a type holder for the oddball size font. Scott, on their website, claims their fonts will fit other machines- why dont you call or email them,and ask them whether Hermes or Gorton fonts will fit their machine?
The important part of any fonts are the fonts themselves. The letters can be held by any system that works. Most of the fonts that I've seen are held in a dovetailed base where you slide the letters in and hold them in place with a stop or other such thing and that works just fine.
