We have a massive amount of Edge Pro products so we figured it would be good to have a whole section on how to use the machine and what to use on it.

Pen to write on back of EP plates

What pen do you use to write on the back of the EP plates? I tried Sharpies, but they just wash off :(

A cheap engraver for the aluminum?

I have a Dymo label writer. Works really good.

Cover what you write with the Sharpie with a piece of cellophane tape.

A follow up for you, I didn't have it in front of me at the time but the Dymo label maker I have is called a Letratag. Mine is pretty old, but the plastic label tape works great on the EP stone holders. Amazon has a new one for less than $30, it will come handy for a lot stuff you'll find. Brother also makes a similar label maker.

I use it for marking my strop pads too, type of leather and the grit size spray on them.

I have Shapton Pro stones... :D

On my Glass stones I use permanent marker on the back.

Permanent marker is a good idea and easy.
