  Premium Performance :  

Scribers that are Designed and Built for Scribing Log Homes

Plumb — no scribe-setting board is ever needed!

Gripergonomic grip --very comfortable and non-slip , good in all weather and all seasons . The easiest to hold, and most comfortable scriber ever made. Also-- my grip is warm to hold in winter (aluminum scribes suck the heat out of your hands); and my grip maintains its comfortable textured grip even when wet.

Side-Handle — optional side handle makes grip rock solid. You will be amazed at the control you get. Any M8 x 1.25 handle will fit (Makita sander / grinder for example). Or buy the optional handle in the store.

Pen angle — the pen holders can be rotated by you at any time, to any angle, to get the best contact with both logs. The scribe setting will not change, and the scriber stays plumb! (Patents may apply.)

Handheld — the best hand geometry of any scriber made: easy to grip, easy to keep plumb, comfortable.

Sturdy — all scribers are precision instruments—but these are also sturdy, durable, robust, using all non-rusting premium stainless steel and high-test aluminum.

Professional Quality — designed and manufactured to provide you with a lifetime of use.

Bubbles — The best in the industry. All models have both double-bubble and bullseye bubble. The bubbles of competitor's scribers bounce around because they are cheap plastic . The bubble vials I use are custom made for me, to my specs (not off-the-shelf). Worth it? Yes !. . . . the difference is like night and day. Try them !

  Unique Features :  

Designed for log home builders, from the ground up — here's what I mean:

Did you know that ALL other scribers on the market were built up / designed from dividers, NOT built from scratch as log home scribers? That's right -- all other scribers are dividers with attachments added to make them work for scribing logs.

The ChambersScriber is the FIRST scriber designed specially for scribing logs !

Can be used for horizontal scribing (stairs, roof systems, drywall, etc).

Can be used for "laser scribing" — my scribes have a precision-milled hole ready for standard bore-sight lasers !

Scribe Distances — 0 to 10.5+ inches (0 mm to 270 mm)
and up to 25 inches (0 mm to 635 mm) -- when using modular, optional slides (available now -- call me).

Built-in lanyard hole for carrying on your tool belt.

  Great Pens :  

Fisher Space Pens work at ALL angles, and even write underwater. More than 10 years of field testing have proven these are the best ink pens for scribing logs.

Bold Point -- PBSP-1 (blue) or PBSP-4 (black) -- call 1-702-293-3011 and ask for dealer contact information for your area. Bold pens are not available directly from Fisher, but are available through re-sellers, or from me.

Ball-point tips, so pens do not wear down, and do not change with wear.

Pens and pen-holders are slim so they fit into the tight spaces in notches.

Pens for my scriber are always available off the shelf from several stores. Pen refills are about $8 each.
