Line Scribe
« on: June 14, 2023, 11:09:26 PM »
I made this little scribe today for cutting stock lines. Itís not my original idea and Iím sure others already use one or something similar. I donít remember where I saw it used so I canít give credit where itís due. I used a scrap piece of pine board, 3 finishing nails that I pilot drilled 1/16Ē and a little wood glue. After I cut the scribe nail to length I chucked it in the hand drill and rounded the point with a file. The base is long enough to fit across barrel channels. Itís fast and easy to build, so several can be made with different scribe heights. And the 1/16Ē hole holds the scribe nail securely with no movement.

Could work ok for forestock molding, but ideally the lower buttstock molding is seldom parallel to the lower edge.
Instead it tapers in width from widest at the rear, to narrowest at the front where it terminates beneath the trigger guard.

Just place a wood shim under the lower buttstock, thin part to the rear, to create the tapered grove.
