Painstaking process.

I have a set of metric and a set of standard 1/4-drive sockets on socket rails in my tool bag at work, got sick of grabbing the wrong set so I used auto touch-up paint and colored the engraved line on the metrics. Wiped off the excess and now there's a line on the metrics so I can tell at a glance what set I'm grabbing.


Do the same with your wrenches, just put the paint in the size markings or in the name on the wrench, wipe it off with a cloth, and the paint should stay in the markings. Use durable paint and you won't have any problems with it fading or getting rubbed off


That's what I did with my Gearwrench combination wrenches but I used nail polish. It works really well and is quick to do. I did it in black for both sets but I've been considering cleaning them up and redoing the Metric and SAE in different colors. I like the touch up paint idea, then I don't have to look for paint without glitter or whateverTF they put in that stuff.
