Is it about the size of a normal Sharpie? Test is in a few days and I'd like to start simulating testing conditions if possible. Thanks!

I had a 0.6mm wet erasable marker. As you probably know, "Sharpies" come in several tip sizes.

That's why I was asking about the normal Sharpie (with an embedded link to a picture!), which is about the size of the normal dry-erase marker.

But you got even more specific, thanks!

0.6mm is much smaller than I expected.

It's just like a regular, fine tip pen. Not one of those stubby tipped markers used on whiteboards.

Well that's one less thing to worry about I guess. Too bad that issue called "the quant section" isn't so easy. :lol: :cry:

Thanks for your input.

It was much less of an issue than I thought it would be.
