I've never used real marking out fluid only red and blue wide tip permanent marker pens.
Unfortunately cutting fluids etc dissolve the inks.
Is the dykem impervious to this?
Yes Charles, I've never had a problem with them.

Dykem is good stuff. I got very lucky and got a 1 quart bottle of the red color on eBay for $20. Jumped on it like a duck on a June bug.

Aluminum is a very soft metal. The table made from it will soon be loaded with embedded chips of steel,cast iron,or anything harder than aluminum. I know this from personal experience using aluminum over 60 years ago when I only had wood working machinery at home to cut the aluminum. I'd advise at least cover the aluminum with a steel sheet screwed to it. Cast iron would be even better,but it would be a rare find to discover a piece of it that would be suitable. Or pay like it is gold to buy a piece of it from a distributor !
