For Sale!

Not your every day scriber.

First one of two titanium body / carbide tipped metal scribers is now in store at http://store.yetislittleworkshop.co.uk £26 excluding postage.

Includes 4 x silicone o-rings as shown.

Flamed finish Ti6Al4V body made from 8mm solid Ti rod, machined by hand by yours truly, tapered tip leading to a point hand sharpened with diamond file from a broken solid carbide endmill.

Should mark even hardened steels and also break toughened glass in an emergency.

Due to managing to break a 3mm drill bit (stupid mistake😳) 10mm into the end of one of the lengths of Ti, these scribes are now going to be just under 14 cm long instead. 😥

This is the first one with its point glued in and tip tapered before doing any finishing turning in some grip rings and rounding off the other end.
Shown with a bic ballpoint pen cap for scale.

This is Bluetounge austenitic damascus steel. It costs £3 per centimetre for 13mm diameter round bar. Am I nervous about machining a bodkin out of this stuff? Yes. Yes I am. #comingsoon

Updated the store's look and feel last night.

Would appreciate it if folks would let me know what they think of the new design?

Also, I've collated together the varied accounts where I post stuff that I make, would be really happy if folks could like / follow me on them if they aren't already...
