I have a rather large and pricey long turn wood project that requires the use of Sharpie makers/pens. With an email conversation with woodturner Ernie Conover, he made mention that Sharpie pens are NOT permanent and will only last a short period of time so India Ink is one of the few that will last. Ok, a panic racked this old guy in that so much has been done over the last couple of years with Sharpie pens that I went to the Sharpie web site to find information on the longevity of their ink. Here comes that really big panic! The following is copied directly from their web site:
• How long does a permanent marker last?
So with this information i need to somehow save what I have so far and figure out what to do next. As for so many woodworkers signing their projects with a Sharpie… maybe a second thought for using this maker.
