Previous scribing methods—not just in my trade but in others as well—were cumbersome and didn’t result in the perfect fit anyone who takes pride in his or her work demanded.

The best tools from around the world find their way into the ToolSelect garage, and the community is excited to see how the scribing tool from Australia-based Thingamejig Precision Tools stacks up. The tool will be available for a first-hand look at the National Hardware Show, booth 6760, May 1-3 in Las Vegas.

The scribing tool, invented and patented in 2009 by Thingamejig founder Pete Chamberlain, presents itself as a solution to the drawbacks of traditional scribing methods. By placing the tool on a horizontal surface at a 90-degree angle to the vertical skirting board, the user can slide the tool along the surface until the skirting board is fully marked. At that point, the skirting board is ready to be trimmed precisely to the contours of the horizontal surface.

“The scribing methods carpenters, cabinetmakers and stone masons have been using are clumsy, awkward and require two hands,” says Chamberlain. “Our scribing tool eliminates those problems. It takes what was hard work and makes it easy, increasing the quality and craftsmanship of finished products.”

Chamberlain continues, “I worked with cabinetry for 23 years. Previous scribing methods—not just in my trade but in others as well—were cumbersome and didn’t result in the perfect fit anyone who takes pride in his or her work demanded. That’s why I invented this tool. Expert craftsmen who require the best of themselves can now get the result they want while saving time over the old methods.”

The scribing tool can be operated with one hand and is suitable for a number of industries. The tool will mark many surfaces, including stone, metal, laminates, timber and painted surfaces.

“Most of the tools we’ve been reviewing in videos so far have been power tools,” says Tom Klein, vice president of marketing and merchandising with ToolSelect. “It’s exciting to get our community looking at and reviewing hand tools like the scribing tool from Thingamejig, as our community is always in search of the best tools and methods to improve efficiency in their work.”

ToolSelect will be giving away three Thingamejig scribing tools through their Facebook page on May 1st, and several others will be available in the ToolSelect point store, which rewards members for their contributions to the site.
