ScribeMate

The ScribeMate is engineered to be used with the QuickScribe to produce items which must fit in more complex, multi-sided placements, or to follow curved surfaces. A template is cut with the QuickScribe and is placed on the finish material to be cut. The ScribeMate is used with a bigger router to follow the template and cut the finish materials. It basically puts the inch back on that the QuickScribe takes off when making the template, similar to making an inlay but with a hair of clearance to keep from marring the walls when installing the item.

How to Use ScribeMate

The tool mounted to a Porter Cable #690 router—with model 1001 base. With the number of routers available, if we added mounting holes for all of them there would be so many holes that one would never figure out which holes to use. All it takes to mount it to another router is adding holes in the lexan base for mounting, making sure that the router bit is centered in the wheel.

Fasten a rough 1/4″ thick template in place. The template will be cut with Quickscribe™ 1 inch away from all walls, so does not need to be cut very close. 1/4″ mdf is cheap and makes a nice template. Using plywood sometimes creates problems when there are voids in the plies that result in poor templates.

Rout with Quickscribe™. Just hold the router flat, with the wheel against the wall and work from right to left. Working from left to right the router tends to pull into the work.

The template is cut 1″ perpendicular to all walls

Clamp the template to the material to be cut and rout with the Scribemate™. Cut is made 1″ perpendicular to the template surface. Stop at outside corners and make those cuts by hand or the corners will be rounded. See (page 8) for example. Square out any inside corners.

Here you’ll see where you’ll need to make adjustments by hand

After making the necessary hand cuts, set in place

Example of rounded corners if you don’t stop at outside corners

The lexan base can be flexed to tilt the router, making a slight back cut to make it easier to drop the work in place. Just hold down on the handle and apply downward pressure to the outside handle of the router. This may be done when making the cut, or you can go over what you have already cut straight to bevel slightly.

A 3/4″ or 1″ or any large dovetail bit may be used to produce a back cut with a greater angle. The cutting height must be adjusted to make the cut 1″ away from the template material while the router is resting on the template material. Set up and adjust using scrap pieces and a piece of template material. Use a dovetail bit is recommended when fitting to rough surfaces such as the following examples (please go to the next page)
