Introduction: A Simple Marking Knife

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.

Great idea!

Your 2-in-1 Sander looks really cool, I've never seen one of those

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 "super coupon" good for 20% off anything they have, and get it pretty cheap.

Nice I made a similar tool for cutting plexiglass.

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.

Got a ton the same way myself.

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!

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.

Great idea instead of using a pencil!

author

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.
