I use a magazine, and an HB pencil, 0.5, 0.7 or 0.9 depending on how
thick I want.

Hi Mike

I do mine on one of those self healing X-Acto cutting matts. It's got
just
enough "give" without being too hard.  I also use a blunt scriber rather
than a ballpoint pen, but either way works fine.

Cheers
Mike
