Scribing a Template

Scribing a Template
  Spiling is used for jobs where you need to scribe in an area where you have more than one scribed edge to contend with; a window board or an alcove recess are good examples.

Use an offcut of board that will sit in the opening that is close enough to the scribing points for the EasyScribe to extend to make marks on all the edges necessary as this will become the template.

  If you are fitting shelves or you are working in any other suspended situation you need to get the template material at the correct height of the final fitted piece to ensure a perfect fit, either by making a template that will bear on the shelf support battens to allow an accurate set of marks to be made, or by building up underneath with boxes, books or similar.

For the templating material use something that is stiff enough to be marked easily without deflecting or bending; MDF is usually ideal for templating.
The offcut for the template doesnŐt need to be square or have straight edges, it just needs to be close enough for the EasyScribe to make a mark and with a 1mm to 40mm adjustment, there is plenty of scope.

Open up the EasyScribe to the widest point or a little beyond if you have enough material to play with on the offcut.

  Make sure the template material canŐt move as the marks are made, either by weighting it down, double sided tape or simply holding in place with your free hand as the EasyScribe is designed for one handed use both to make the mark and for any alterations.

Make a series of marks by running the EasyScribe along all the surfaces that need to be scribed and keep the EasyScribe set at the same position.

  Place the newly cut template onto your favoured material for the job in hand ensuring there is enough overhang all round for the EasyScribe to re-mark from the template to the workpiece.
For a window board type project a nosing projection is marked on and the template positioned to this.
