Necessity is the mother of invention, or so they say. Well, this is a prime example. Someone kept stealing my pencils in the shop, So I made a simple marking knife to use instead. They are more accurate anyways.

<p>Great idea!</p><p>Your 2-in-1 Sander looks really cool, I've never seen one of those</p>
<p>It's a fairly low end sander, But still real handy to have around. If you search the internet for a few minutes, you can usually find a harbor freight &quot;super coupon&quot; good for 20% off anything they have, and get it pretty cheap.</p><p><a href="http://www.harborfreight.com/4-inch-x-36-inch-belt-6-inch-disc-sander-97181.html">http://www.harborfreight.com/4-inch-x-36-inch-belt-6-inch-disc-sander-97181.html</a></p>
<p>Nice I made a similar tool for cutting plexiglass. </p>
<p>they really are handy to have around the shop. i keep one at the table saw, one at the chop saw statin, and a few scattered around here and there for convenience. great way to re-use old bits i find at the auction all the time. </p>
<p>Got a ton the same way myself.</p>
<p>That's a pretty cool marker, I have about a dozen pencils in my shop and can never find one. This idea will make it a lot easier to find the marker and the car wax was a great idea as well. Thanks for sharing!</p>
<p>the old spade bit made the perfect donor blade too. its high speed steel, so you dont have to worry so much about overheating it when you grind it.</p>
<p>Great idea instead of using a pencil!</p>
<p>very. the line is much thinner, more accurate, and the lead doesn't break every 5 minutes. and with any luck, my kids wont steal it like they do my pencils, lol.</p>
