Reply To: Restore folding wooden rule


After cleaning, are the markings deep enough that I could apply something black, then scrape or sand just the surface, leaving the black in the markings? I can’t quite tell if there is enough depth there. If I used a black dye, it might bleed into the surrounding wood or go too deep. Maybe I could crayon on some of my darkest filler wax? If it rubs out, I can rub more in, and it won’t bleed.
