This is the precision made machinist scribe featured in our turnout construction video and is ideal for scribing rail and PC Board ties during turnout construction.
This high quality tool is manufactured by The L. S. Starrett Company and is made of knurled, nickel plated steel. The scriber point is made from tungsten carbide and is finely tapered so that the location of the point is not obscured. The scriber is held firmly in the handle by a knurled chuck and when not in use can be reversed, telescoped into the handle and locked by the chuck. The hexagon head prevents rolling.
Important Note: Scriber tips are precision ground tools designed for scribing and marking only. The tips are quite fragile and should only be used for this purpose.
Replacement scriber tips are available to order from here.
