Tooley Park scriber Range
Philip made the original Tooley Park scriber 25 years ago for fitting his furniture in homes across the UK (shown here with a fat boy).
It’s been such a useful tool that he decided to develop it into the range of scribers available to purchase today.
The scribers are small and fit nicely in the hand with a footprint of only 64mm x 25.4mm for the fat boy and big boy, 64mm x 20mm for the skinny boy.
All the boys work great with pencils but the big boy is also designed to hold a metal scribe (available separately) or any metal tool you might shape yourself.
A knurled tightening knob ensures enough torque can be applied to avoid any movement when scribing but when loose the delrin body pivots freely in the aluminium frame.
The knob is spaced away from the body for easier knob turning.
Simple to set up. Tweak the knurled knob enough to create a bit of friction, set to your desired depth then fully tighten the knob.
The big boy is designed to hold a metal scribe. Useful for fitting doors where the 6mm x 1mm lip at the front of the scriber fits in a gap. This lip can be filed thinner or removed altogether if the user prefers.
Look carefully at these big boys and you will see the pencil sitting above the pivot point and the metal scribe sitting below.
This design feature allows the metal scribe to be at a very shallow angle which makes it easier to control.
When used as a conventional scriber remove the pivot bolt and flip the body 180 degrees.
This cross section view of the big boy body shows how the scriber/pencil can be held above or below the pivot point and how the brass dowel stops the knob thread from being damaged.
Note this images shows the brass dowel in position with the metal scribe and in it’s storage hole when used as a conventional scriber.
Each scriber has the company url stamped on the side.
Utilizing the front lip to fit boards on the same plane.
