When installing cabinets, counters, door jams or window sills against an existing - probably imperfect - surface, a worker (professional or DIY) must scribe the surface profile onto the material in order to cut it to a snug fit. For that, a scribe is needed, and there's nothing easier or more reliable than Simple Scribe. This is a seven-sided block into which a #2 pencil is inserted in order to produce accurate scribes - at seven different settings from ¼ inch to 1 inch in 1/8 inch increments. While other products have to be set, Simple Scribe never has to be set nor will it ever become unset. It's ideal for cabinets, countertops, flooring, paneling and most light carpentry projects. Save time and money while achieving professional results.
