When I was a kid my dad painted all of his tools bright yellow so he could spot them when he lost them in the field. 30 years later I still see his tools and have found several of them in the field. He always seemed to leave a few on the frame of his equipment.
I go through a lot of cans of fire red tremclad, just for that purpose. my favorite go to hammer which is an old stone hammer, found it on the field road without realizing i had lost it. everything is red, Lol. Even stuff i use on the john deere tractor, if it can fall off it is red.
i haven't tried it yet, but, i was going to try some glass beads (sandblasting) on wet paint so it would reflect bright at night if headlights hit it.

That stupid laser etching is the worst, same problem with the eyes, also i think the street signs are getting more fuzzier than i remember, must be poor QA, LOL.
Oh man... I hate that lazer etching. My vintage SnapOn's from the 70's are still easier to read than some I've picked up in the last 10 years. I bought letter stamps (just 2, for my initials) back when I worked in shops to ID my tools. The ones I stamped in the 70's are still legible. I stamped sockets on the sides, but on top of the larger ones would probably be easier.
