Description

In Detail

Base dimensions 80 x 63mm, spindle length 300mm, scriber length 175mm. A basic tool for machinists and toolmakers, it is used for accurately scribing lines, transferring measurements or probing surfaces in inspection work. A fully hardened and ground base serves as an accurate reference surface. A machined Vee groove in the base allows the gauge to be used on curved surfaces. A Vee groove at the front end lets the spindle adjust to any angle above or below the base, allowing it to be used both as a height gauge and a depth gauge. Two retractable pins allow the gauge to be located against the edge of a surface plate or T-slot for linear work. A 1/4" (6.35 mm) hole in the spring loaded scriber holder allows a dial indicator to be attached for checking flatness, parallelism, heights, depths etc. Grooves on the side of the base give a comfortable grip. Well tapered scriber for better sighting while working. The scriber is hardened to RC55-60 and is tapered for a good view of the work.

Very poorly ground finish and base not truly flat.

I thought £39 was too good to be true for a reasonable quality scriber block and unfortunately this has proved to be the case. The ground finish on the base is very poorly done, you can actually see ripples along the base rather than a truly flat ground finish. The base is not flat and 'rocks' when placed on a Mitutoyo Class 0 surface plate. A scriber block is of absolutely no use at all if its base is not absolutely flat. I have returned the scriber block as it is not fit for purpose.

no replace scribe

This is a good starters scribing block however there does not seem to be a replicable scribe for the tool.
