Made a center marking tool thing


Recommended Posts

Maple and bubinga handle. Turned the aluminum rod on my drill press and cut it on table saw. Initially was trying to use a pencil, but it just had too much slop, so i put in a dowel and centered a carbide cutter from a cricut machine. Very pleased with the result, gives a nice, clean line.  

Also.. whats the "real" name of this tool?

Hey, you made it, you name it. Center marking tool thing sounds good to me. Really cool idea and execution!

Nah, just saw something on pinterest and loosely copied it lol.  Thought it was a neat idea, and will definitely be useful for some things I'll be doing.

Thanks :)

If the scribe was carbide, you could scribe an alignment line down the center back of your mortise chisel, and you would be good to go putting a mortise in the center of anything.

IF only I had a mortise ;) hahaha but thats a great idea.
