Tool Time: Making impact sockets legible with a paint pen

 I was scrolling through ToolTok and found a chap spray painting his impact sockets to make them legible, then wiping off the excess paint with WD-40.  I tried it and it didn't work, but I found another way.  I painted over the engraving with a Milwaukee Inkzall Paint pen https://amzn.to/3TQCSXd (Amazon Affiliate link), let it dry completely, and scraped off the excess paint with a razor knife.  This worked an absolute treat.  10/10.  Thanks TikTok!
