  3. REFINED AND ELEGANT MARKING TOOL Review by Review by Mark from

    The Centerscribe is beautifully made with a nice heft and feel of quality as soon as you pick it up. I do a lot of tapered work and finding and marking the center is a pain. I owned the previous version of the Centerscribe and this newer version is more refined and elegant. It’s value to me in the time it saves makes it worth much more than what it costs.

  4. Best center finding tool ever! Review by Knappswoodworking, RareWoodsUS

    I had used about 9 other center finding tools before I was lucky enough to try a CS-1. Only the CS-1 was accurate. So when I saw the CS-2 be produced, I jumped on it. I got it this week and it's totally worth every penny..... (Posted on 12/3/14)
