Deck Scoring

Recommended Posts

I find this simple device that I designed several years ago, very useful for scoring decks.     When the handle is rotated towards me, it pushes the scoring guide to the left.    The depth guage attached to the sliding guide gives a direct width reading.   I can score fine decks to a very high degree of accuracy using this device.    Using it is very simple, and requires no skill whatsoever.    Score line with scalpel, turn handle required distance, and then score the next one.     A few minutes will give you a perfect sheet of planking!

The only way to get one, is to make one.     Not at all difficult.   Got the long threaded rod at the back from a hardware store.   The aluminum angle was from a Do it Yourself store.    Aluminium sheet may be found on Ebay.   I got the depth guage from a car boot sale.
