white fine point permanent white marker for Flywheel marks

I bought a new white tip permanent fine point marker, so i can mark my 0 and 10* marks. well, my dog decided to remove marker pen package (still in the unopened package)from my coat, and chew it up before i could even use it. hopefully i can salvage what's left to mark my darn flywheel
-bad dog

I use nail polish for a buck at Wal-Mart.

Bottle seals well, has a nice little brush, doesn't dry out, dries fast, and on cam sprockets and stuff you can still see the original hash mark.

And it even smells good.

I've got one of those... it's almost like a paint pen, it's great.

I swear to god i had the idea for the white out pen before it was invented. I couldnt come up with a patent so i gave up. 2 years latter look what comes rolling out.

silver sharpie


i use them for everything. when they start running dry, store them point down and you can milk some more marks out of them, otherwise i store them horizontally.

i quit using white-out pens when i found silver sharpies.

+4 on the silver sharpie.
I love that thing.
I've used it for hash marks on pvc plastic, cutting marks on black pipe,
heck, I've even doodled with the thing.
I love that marker, and I always try to store it tip down.
I find it makes it last longer.
I tried the whiteout marker, but it came off too easily.
Get it wet, or accidentally rub across it once and it's gone. :mad:
At least the silver sharpie has some staying power. :-\
