With more than four decades of experience in cabinetry and wood working, Bill Friegang knows tools. He has spent the last 15 years developing a system of scribing products to save woodworkers, cabinetmakers, carpenters and anyone involved in installation time and money. The QuickScribe™, ScribeMate™ and new EuroScriber® will save hours of installation time and eliminate the need for masking tape, scriber tools, caulking and belt sanders.
The QuickScribe and ScribeMate are trim router accessory plates that fit several trim routers including Bosch, DeWalt, and Porter Cable brands. These tools allow the installer to make precise trims and templates that match the curved or bowed surfaces of walls or flooring. The EuroScriber is a specially-designed clamp tool that offsets the scribe strips of Euro Style or frameless cabinets for trimming by the QuickScribe. Each of Friegang’s scribing tools are patented, and produced in northern California by local artisans. Friegang takes pride in selling only high-quality, American-made tools.
The QuickScribe and Scribemate are made of a light, durable anodized aluminum with a Delrin wheel. The ScribeMate’s flexible base of sturdy Lexan allows slight tilting of the router. The EuroScriber is also made of anodized blue aluminum, but employs non-marking nylon thumb screws that protect cabinet ends from scratching. Both the QuickScribe and the ScribeMate retail for around $80, while a set of three EuroScribers retails for $60.
