    Pocket Scribe

    Pocket scribe I made over 35 years at sea somewhere. Made from a Brass bolt and a Needle Scaler needle ground to a point and a Bic pen pocket clip. It has served me well for many years.Pocket Scribe-scribe3.jpgPocket Scribe-scribe1.jpgPocket Scribe-scribe2.jpg

    We do a lot of welding. And with the rise of inverter welders we no longer use straight tungsten (green tips).

    So I sharpened the remainder and made them scribes, might make handles now. More money than the scaler needle, but they were just laying around. Just a thought for others.
