Yeah. I agree. I don't believe we have a theft problem. Lots of those
tools are mine on loan to Tangleball and they still seem to be there. But
there is a wee bit of confusion as to whose tools are ours and whose are
Tumekes. I vote for pink paint. I have marked a couple of things with a TB
for Tangleball. I used a white twink pen which is ok on some surfaces e.g.
unpolished steel but no good on chrome etc . When I was engineering we used
an impact engraver. Or used a threading tap tool to punch a series of dots
to put our initials on tools. See the spanners on the shadow board. For
personal tools its probably best to have your name or initials on it. So
people can track down the owner if they find it lying around. But I do like
the resistor colour code idea too.
