The Veritas transfer scribe is used for transferring the contours of one shape onto another. This is what makes it an ideal log scribe. But this also makes it an excellent carpenter's scribe.
It can translate that not-so-straight, 100-year-old wall profile onto a cabinet panel, letting you get a perfect match. It can be used with two pencils for double scribing, or with the hardened steel pin on one leg for smooth scribing. With a maximum capacity of 12", it is calibrated so that any opening can be used once the double bubbles are set for a given pin and pencil projection. The rotatable double-level post can be adjusted and locked in any position on either axis, an uncommon feature in log scribes.
The pointed end of the steel pin is for compass work; the blunt curved end is non-marring for transfer scribing. Other components are non-corroding brass and zinc-aluminum alloy.
Comes in a foam-lined hard-shell plastic case. Usable with any standard pencil, it comes with a purple pencil that marks well with light pressure. Extra pencils are available in either dark purple or red for better contrast.
