Perfect Butt profile scriber in use

Searching for this tool on the internet might land you at sites that could generate marital strife, but finding it is worth the risk. Unfortunate name aside, the M.Power Perfect Butt profile scriber will accurately scribe any piece where you desire a gap-less butt joint.

For instance, while installing your brand new counter top you discover an unsightly gap left at one wall. Simply trace the scriber along the counter top with the scribe’s wheel following the contour of the wall. This will create a perfect profile on the counter to to follow when cutting.

Five different wheel sizes –11/16″, 1″, 1/8″, 2″, 2″3/4, and 3′ 1/2 — attach to the knurled brass retaining shaft, giving the scriber the flexibility to match just about any contour. Inside the shaft, a replaceable spring-loaded common scribing pencil creates the scribe line.

Street pricing runs about $30.

    That is soooo cool. I want to buy three of them. That would be way simpler than using a block of wood with a pencil taped to it, or a compass, and later find out that the line wasn’t quite right do to user error. (DOH!) I’ve had to redo one too many of those errors.

    Again I say, that is sooo cool.

    …but, being round, it won’t do corners or fine detail like butting up to rockwork. Guess I’ll keep on using my old pointed stick with a hole in it.

    Brau- these work good with a pattern bit and collar on a router, just match the offset to the collar. For everything else- I agree that round is kind of pointless in the corners, but I use a scrap with a hole in the center and grooves on the ends that line up with the hole, you can scribe right up to the edge with a pencil.
