I agree, though I use a #3 pencil for labeling cassettes.  Less smearing,
finer print.

Please listen when I tell you that a #2 lead pencil works best for
processing cassettes!  I know it goes against everything you have learned
over the years, you know how in the medical field you have to buy the
highest priced items.  In this case, it is not true.  I wouldn't spend 50
cents on a marking pen for cassettes.  A #2 lead pencil is the way to go.
Can anyone back me up on this?  Give the pencil a try-you'll be happy you
