    I got hold of some sticks of 3/16 2% years ago. Put shrink tubing on them and sharpened for scribes. Very durable.

    I have several scribes,, all are high carbon steel,,

    I ain't gonna go cheap, reusing scrap tungsten, just to have the tungsten snap and stick a hole in my skin somewhere,,

    Maybe I would think differently,, if I did not have young grandchildren "helping" me,,,

    I like that small project for class.

    It's one of the first things the students will make next year actually.

    Do you still have that 5/32" tungsten? I made a few out of that stuff, works great until I lose it.
