Introduction: Scriber From a Mechanical Pencil

For this project, we need:

- a mechanical pencil (for 2.5 mm diameter lead).

- a motorcycle spoke with 2.5 mm diameter (lucky me :D, it's the same diameter of the pencil lead).

It's very easy to make this project, all you need to do is:

- cut the spoke to the required length (longer than the pencil lead a little bit),

- sharpen the spoke and heat treating the sharpened point (burn it to orange color with your torch or with your gas stove then deep it in water),

- smooth the spoke with sand paper (1000 grit).

As you can see in the photos, I used it to mark the outline on the metal. Thanks for reading and enjoy it !

This is a great idea, most scribers have little thought in their hand hold design (many are just knurled), this makes up for that shortcoming by using a very ergonomic designed device.

A big well done to you!
