New centeline scriber design

Here is my new knife centerline scribe design. Just lay your blade on a flat surface and
scribe a center line by dragging scriber along the edge. One screw is used for height adjustment another(on the side) for tightening of the tip.

I own a scribe from Jantz

Mine is better and since I made it I never used my old one.

1. You can make fine adjustments with the screw.
2. You can draw center lines even after you started to grind (helped me a lot when I ground over my lines)
3. replacement tip is cheap and sold everywhere. Not as small as in classic scriber.

Materials you'll need:
1. two screws
2. replacement scriber tip from HomeDepot for $2
3. piece of plastic or metal about 1"x1"x2"

Feel free to comment.

Thanks,
Alex

Thanks,

It feels great that someone likes your design.
I just thought of another feature it has: if you unscrew height adjustment screw almost all the way sharp tip won't stick out
and it's safe to handle without poking yourself.

Sorry,

I should have posted construction details.

Here is the instructions:

1. Take or make a rectangular piece of plastic or metal (mine is 3/4"x3/4"x1.5" and made out of cutting board plastic). IMHO you really don't need anything harder than plastic I think.

2.

Sorry,

I should have posted construction details.

Here is the instructions:

1. Make a rectangular piece of plastic or metall let's call it "base" (mine is 3/4"x3/4"x1.5" and made out of cutting board plastic). IMHO you really don't need anything harder than plastic

2. Drill a hole thru the base at about 15 degrees to the bottom of the base like on attached picture. Diameter of this hole the same as scribe tip.

3. Drill bigger diameter hole half way thru the block using previous hole as a pilot hole.

4. Tap this hole(I am using tap for 1/4" screws)

5. Drill a hole perpendicular to smaller diameter hole and tap it. This is for tip tightening screw.

Alex,
I will be making one myself, thanks for sharing. I wonder if my wife will miss the corner of her cutting board! Any source for the scribe?

Thanks Mike

I saw the scribe that the tip is the replacement for. Its in the section of Home Depot that sells the small tools . Its made by General and is over by the spring loaded center punch they sell. I used a small scribe tip I got at a surplus store. I paid .25 cents for it and they have bunches. If your interested I can go get some and mail it to you taped inside an envelope "for the good of".email me if interested.

Dave,
I will be going to town tomorrow. We don't have Home Depot but we have Lowe's and Grainger. If I can't find one I'll take you up on your offer! What did you make yours out of? How did you do the jeweling?

Thanks Mike
