Marking your Measurements Pencils and Markers

Now that you have your tape measure decoded, you may want to look at some marking tools. These are my recommended marking tools.

Markers

First up: Fine Point Sharpie
I use this for marking steel studs, face marking studs for electric box
locations, plumbing stubs, and anywhere I need a durable marker.

Note: Do not use this to mark anything
that you might want to paint. Do not use this on drywall unless you
want to spend a lot of money on KILZ to try to cover it up. This is a Permanent Marker

Next up: Carpenter Pencil.

This is the preferred tool for marking materials, as it has a strong lead, its shape is unique meaning you can find it in your tool pouch, and won't roll around. p.s. if you do a lot of business with specialty yards, they usually will give you a few. Even if you have to buy them, they are a good deal. Sharpen them with your utility knife.

Last up #2 Pencil

Everybody has them and they work. They do break easy, roll a lot and get lost.

Pens are not recommended as they run out of ink, roll farther and faster than #2 pencils.
