Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier.

The White Out is pretty tough and is recessed in the disk and should last a very long time, but be careful when using the mineral spirits, it will start taking off the arrow head, but you could recoat it.

Another trick I learned a long time ago from role playing dice is to use crayons. Use a contrasting color and rub it into the engraved letters with some force. Then you can just rub the extra off with a rag. Easy to apply, easy to see, easy to repair.

Nice trick. We used to do the same thing with the dice used in playing Dungeons and Dragons back before they started inking those 8-20 sided dice
