    I am almost universally opposed to this.

    1) In your example, sure easy enough, BUT what happens when the part needs to be 1/4" longer, and 1/2" wider? Now you have to change a bunch of X and Y...

    Google tells me it was invented (as in a machine, not ice blocks) in the early to mid 1800's. Of course much later to get a foolproof system that did not use toxic chemicals...

    I second the NICE pen! I personally prefer gel pens, but really something above a 10 cent bic would be good. Maybe even a desk set with pen/pencil/notepad. And you can't go wrong with a gift card.
