Marking and Transfer Tools
Veritas Marking & Transfer Tool
The great advantage of this tool is that it lets you accurately mark or transfer several positions at once from a common reference edge.
Used like an adjustable, reusable story stick, it is particularly well suited for any layout work that must be reliably reproduced, such as when marking box and lid hinge gain positions or left and right slide locations in a cabinet carcass.It is also a simple way to consistently mark off knob or handle locations on drawers or cabinet doors.
The basic tool includes four 76 mm (3 inch) long marking heads, a 305 mm (12 inch) stainless-steel rod and a brass foot. The marking heads have a single straight reference edge (reversible by flipping the head) and can be locked at any position along the rod. The brass foot can be used on either end of the rod and is reversible for outside or inside measurements. Included in delivery: 1 rod, 1 brass foot, 4 heads
Additional pairs of marking heads and 305 mm (12 inch) rod sections can be used to extend the tool as needed – the rods have a male thread at one end and a female thread at the other.

SHINWA Log Scriber
Do you make furniture, fit out interiors or build log cabins? Then take a long, hard look at the SHINWA log scriber: it transfers an existing profile directly to the piece of timber that you want to fit.
The trick is to hold the scriber so that the two vials of the spirit level are horizontal in both planes. Initially it takes a bit of practice to hold the scriber level without support, but once you have mastered this detail, you’ll have an indispensable assistant to call on. The vials are relatively large and exceptionally easy to read - thanks also to the light-blue fluid and the wide graduation marks in white. Neither the pen nor the tracing tip has a joint for changing their angle.
The marking pen needs to be sharpened before use. The tracing tip can be replaced by a second pen for marking two lines simultaneously. Lines drawn on a dry surface can be erased. On a moist surface the line colour changes to blue and cannot be erased anymore. The dividers are made of rustproof stainless steel, the spirit level of plastic.
