Starrett ScribersThe rigidity, light-weight, and easy handling advantages of the Starrett divider make it the favorite of log builders everywhere! The features of this divider include steel construction, forged legs, quadrant, knurled lock nuts and tempered points. This sturdy construction overcomes the possibility of the legs moving with the grain when scribing. The dual vial bubble attachment is fully adjustable. It rotates 360 degrees thus facilitating both vertical and horizontal scribing. The Starrett divider combined with the rear mount dual vial bubble attachment makes this unit the most popular log scriber we have ever supplied to students, individual home builders and contractors. Since the early 1970’s more homes have been built using Starrett scribers than any other scriber. This unit is practically a must for accurate and tight fitting joints.

Mackie ScribbersThis scriber was designed by intellectual B. Allan Mackie, world renown log builder, instructor, and lecturer. This scriber has many features which adapt it specifically as a log building scriber. The main body is constructed of aluminum, the point and axis rod of stainless steel, and the nuts and bolts of brass. These metals feature durability, sturdiness and resistance to corrosion. Other features are capability of using full length pencil and steel point at either straight or 24 degree angles and dual vial bubbles. These bubbles are visible from top, side and bottom for an over head, eye-level or low scribe. A cut-out on one side of the rotating level unit allows it to be functional for left or right handed scribing as well as vertical and horizontal scribing. All these features make this a premium quality log scriber with many benefits for the log builder.
