In the last few years I have taken an interest in some of the Times puzzles. As a person entering my “golden years” I find that my vision is not as clear as it once was. Please make the numbers in the boxes a little larger or a little clearer (another font?) so that placing answers in the boxes is not so frustrating. Thank you!

thanks! i try to do at least one CW puzzle per day. i buy most of them in thin books with 80 or so puzzles…i do the puzzles from newspapers, periodicals, and transit handouts, etc. i need a pencil that writes darkly on about any paper. i thought that a bigger lead would be an automatic darker lead so i bought some and it is not. please, anyone with a sug-gestion on a really dark lead for CW’s, newsprint or inex-
pensive, and magazine, post info, please…

OLDEYES!

I saw an article in American Way about your pencils. Can you send me a set for crossword puzzles? I did not see a website to order.

Where can I buy the best darkest pencil (never mind the eraser) for magazine and newsprint puzzles?

My grandfather had five school age daughters during the Great Depression and hid his crossword pencil on top of the door moulding out of their reach.
