I have two P-touch label makers, one for the electronics shop and one for the metal shop. The one near at hand is the oldest(Many years old) and is a model PT-2430 PC. I love it and use it a lot. I have a large inventory of different tape sizes and colors. I highly recommend it.

I quite like my Dymo embossing label maker. The great thing is there are no batteries - it's purely mechanical - and it was inexpensive. The labels are sturdy too.

Love this forum...now I'm only looking at two brands. Will probably go with the Brother for its range of use.

Thanks!

Here is another quick example of why I like the Brother system. I just 3d-printed these wood router bit holders and quickly created labels for them using the 1" label tape. I just grabbed the image from the mfg website and added the text

On my bolt bin I added pictures of the contents to the lable. When looking for a particular fastener or washer, my brain proscceses pictures fatser that the written word. Try it you'd be amazed how much easier it is.
Where i used to work I did the same on the bolt and pipe fitings bins, and Im taking about 100+ bins
