I was looking to get a few welders paint markers online..you have a brand you prefer? And what color you using..seems like silver is the popular choice on amazon..thanks for the info

Hobart and Lincoln also make good markers. I'm not so sure there's any difference in a tag marker and a permanent welders paint marker. Except price. We pay about 5 bucks in the welding supply store. 10 bucks in the feed store for a ear tag marker.
I use these. We but them by the box.

Yall saw the shape of the tag didn't you? They are all curled up and crusted over.....We have some tags that have lasted years and at least you can hold it up to the light and see what number was on it. But not these crusted tags. We've never had this happen before. Use to, we'd just have to replace a lost tag. First time ever to have to replace 90%....We remarked in the spring, a month later I could not read a single tag....
