Jig for Engraving Multiple Pencils: Repeatable positioning



Here, I zipped it for you: pencil jig.zip (11.3 KB)


Thanks for that, @Jules (and @marmak3261 !!!). This is great. I think I’m going to try to make some customized colored pencils for my little niece. Her head is going to explode.

But, like, in a good way.


Conversation in spin class this morning:
“I went to see my sister, Sarinda, in Canada.”
“I bet she never finds her name on a pencil.”
“Neither do I.”
Me: “How do you spell your name, Betina?”
“My name isn’t on a pencil, either. Kevin.”
“Wait… Kevin???”
“Spelled C-A-V-E-N.”
“Nope, you’ll never find that on a pencil.”
“You must have been born in Utah…”

Gauntlet thrown. Challenge accepted. I bought 2 1/2 gross last week because my sister-in-law, Shawnya Klingler, is a first grade teacher… and I like to play.



This is so true!!! I can’t believe the creative spellings I see with my students. You can tell their parents were probably one of a dozen Jennifer, Jamie or Heathers back in the 80s and wanted their kid to be unique.
