    I am going to assume you are looking for dykem or something similar. Here is a link to a site that sells it http://www.americanmarking.com/dykem.htm but only in case quantities. Another site is http://www.knifeandgun.com/catalog/d...9_products.htm I have dealt with either site listed so don't know for sure.

    Is there any industrial supply places around like Hubbard or Grainger?

    Use a construction-grade black Sharpie marker from HD. That's the sharpie with the wide tip. That's what I use.

    You're welcome. Keep in mind that if you spray lube/solvent on the part while cutting, the sharpie mark will disappear. Learned that in mid-cut!

    Most towns of any size have an industrial supply house that sells stuff like drill bits and milling cutters to local factories. They usually stock layout fluid. Shipping usually runs as much as or more than the fluid when bought by mail order.

    Thumbs up Here's a good place

    Victor Machinery Exchange in NYC has Dykem products and thousands of other tooling goodies that I wish I could afford. Decent prices and fast shipping.
