Best way to inscribe?
I'm having a hard time inscribing a graphite rod. I've built several others for myself, but this is for a young man, and I want it to look good. Every method--rolling ball markers, pen and ink--seem to leave to wide a letter. Seems like since the ink can't be absorbed it just puddles on the surface. The result is wide letters. How do I get nice thin letters? I do abrade the surface with wet sandpaper first, but still no luck. All help would be appreciated.
