Here’s an interesting looking tool from Trend. The Multiscribe Pro has a rotating block that can be locked in at any angle with respect to the steel blade. The blade has markings in both 3/16″ and 1/4″ increments and comes to a point on one end. The block sports a pencil sharpener, a bubble vial, and two holes for sticking a pencil through, which is useful for scribing.
Trend claims this tool has 15 functions, but doesn’t list exactly what they are. By analyzing the pictures and text they provide, I’ve enumerated some of the functions.
- Parallel scribe
- Convex scribe
- Contour profile scribe
- Line block for holding a chalk line
- Plumb (by rotating head 90°)
- Pencil Sharpener
- Some sort of device for hanging pictures.
- Transferring angles?
I know I’m missing a few and Trend is probably stretching to get 15 unique functions. Maybe our commenters can fill in the gaps.
With free shipping from Amazon the Multiscribe Pro will run you $60.
