Works exactly as advertised and expected. Has a magnet so it will attach to a metal tool cabinet.
This works very well and isn't very expensive at all. It has a few nice features: It hold a standard pencil perfectly. It does a good job of marking the center of the edge of boards. It has "steps" on each side for specific offset markings. It has a magnet to make storage easy.
I like the size and shape of the tool and it makes finding the center a breeze. Pencil storage and the base magnet are cool. Come with free pencil and sharpener, convenient!!
You’ll need to look at vendor photos because there is no instructions with this product. It’s most useful for the center scribe feature.
The kit includes a pencil and sharpener which I used during my testing. Being ABS makes this a solid tool.
When I saw this I though “Excellent!” because I frequently need to find the center line of metal project boxes (see picture). For this purpose this device works great!
Center Line Usage: at first it took me several attempts to get an accurate center line on a project box, but that is a reflection of my learning curve. You have to put a twist on the device both while you are moving it along the axis and while pushing down on the pencil. To facilitate this I cut the pencil down so I could push down on it with my thumb while moving along the axis and that worked great!

Love the magnet, center find and extra features. I think it says center line is under 2 inches but I’ve used this on guitar necks that are 2 -2 1/2 and seems to still be centered. This is a overall handy tool
