Dear Tom,
For over twenty years I've used a black lead pencil, originally one called a
"Back Magic" pencil, and when that became unavailable I started using either
a 1or2B lead pencil. I have in the interim used pens such as Securline etc.
but found the major hassle was other people at cut-up, even my self at times
leaving the cap off and draastically shortening the life of the pen, or
having it die in the middle of cut-up.
Pencil is pretty hard to beat both for performance or cost!
Regards Mike (Downunder)
