Marking Tools and Levels

Marking Knife: the traditional marking tool used by joiners and cabinet-makers when needing to mark across the grain.  This nicely-produced version has a carbon steel blade and rosewood handle "scales".  Produced in right- and left- handed versions.


Scratch Awls:.  For use in marking out and pricking through, a scratch awl is a very useful tool.  Equipped with a 5 inch (125mm) round blade, or spike, these awls are supplied with choice of beech or rosewood handle.  Our own version, the 0812-P is a somewhat larger and more robust version with a larger diameter awl and rosewood handle, especially useful on larger tasks such as timber framing projects.


Spirit Levels:  These levels are produced in the traditional "boat" or "torpedo" style from solid rosewood with brass facings top and bottom.  The larger (9") model features both horizontal and vertical bubbles whilst the miniature version (4") holds a horizontal bubble only.


For checking and setting out levels on larger jobs such as door-hanging, brickwork this aluminium cased spirit level is right at home.  This type also finds favour when setting out timber frames for scribing where small natural deviations occur readily over the timber and need to be averaged out over its length.
