I picked this up to keep for cabinet installation (scribing filler panels and scribing strips). For less than $20 you get a handy little gadget that stays with me every time I do layout. The arm is articulated like a human finger and very easy to adjust. It seems solid enough for every day cabinet installs for the commercial folks and has all the niceties that the artisan craves in layout tools. Inexpensive, practical, go for it!

Bonus points for a built in pencil sharpener!

I have one too, maybe not 5 stars, but 4 and a half. I just feel like it could have been made a little better and the pin for using it as a compass should recess a little further, mine sticks out a little bit even when recessed as much as possible. But as for using it as a scribe it works great, a lot better then trying to use a compass.

Have your say...
