Well ... I'm in for 2/4! Errr .... 24?(actually thought I was gonna get 48, but oh well ;-)
I've been doing some Christmas shopping for a few months now & at the BIG family gathering I'm thinking stocking stuffers!!!
I also have a pretty huge craft shop. Lots of little gadgets will get good use of these pens and I won't have to take them outside anymore!
And thanks for the past 10 years. :-}

That's interesting, and completely opposite to what my garage door opener person told me.
The "WD" in WD-40 means Water Displacement. WD-40 is NOT primarily a lubricant. See the Wikipedia page for details, but it's designed to keep joints from rusting by keeping water away. Once the volatile compounds evaporate, there's not much lubricating action left (as in the Wikipedia article above, it's only 15% oil - not much unless you really soak things. What that oil does do is to attract and capture dust. It's also a poor lubricating oil for areas that get cold, like my garage in the winter.
A far better spray for your garage door is silicone-based. It's all lubricant, operates over a wide temperature range, and is far more appropriate for the typical garage. That's what my opener dude told me. He's also the one who told me that the WD-40 that I had been using was doing more harm than good.
Silicone spray is cheap and widely available at Home Depot and Lowes.
