Duration:   1 mins

Older sockets and wrenches often use small type to designate size, making them difficult to read in dim light or with aging eyes. Here’s a tip to put the right tool in your hands a little faster.

    Once you engrave them paint the engraving. You can use any color you like. Also some fuel proof decals work well too (like used for gas R/C planes).

    While I really appreciate the information from this website overall, some of the teaching here is pretty amateur. This one is the worst. While marking things is a great idea, a sharpie is a very temporary solution at best. After one use most of these marks will be gone. Give us something we can use please.

        I think it’s important to keep in mind that there are lots of different people with varying degrees of experience and skills. Having said that spending 47 seconds in this clip is not time wasted. For some people what may seem amateurish is really a revelation. Keep up the good work.

    As soon as you get a little oil on there the Sharpie markings disappear. I’ve tried engraving with an engraving pen as well. Permanent but still hard to read.
