Getting back in the shop

After a many year hiatus from full time carpentry and woodworking, I'm happily getting back into it just for fun in my beautiful new 875 sf steel building with a treated floor. I'm busy restoring my tools-mainly getting rid of the rust and making sure they're all lubed up and ready to roll, building moveable work stations and tool specific dust collection. My first question is that in bringing back to life a sweetheart old Sterett USA made 4" square, the numerals have lost all their black. I'm trying to find a way to re-black them and am looking for suggestions. I'm even looking into carbon black/India ink, etc. Anyone have experience with this as I have another 12" Sterett I plan to do the same to.

this may help

Welcome back to woodworking!

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
