Re: Scribing Thread.

I can scribe all day, but if I don't wear my glasses when I make the cut, it isn't going to matter, the cut is going to be wherever.

Re: Scribing Thread.


I went back for maintenance on a deck I did with some neat cantilevers and tricky sloped site needing deep footings,

that's some pretty nice tight straight grained PT we had back then!

I always say my $3 General compass is the best tool in my pouch. It's hard to beat for scribing most trim work...
