Yes in fact they must be close to you, Pricer. They don't cost too much. Maybe you can line us all up for some. The ones I make (which are sort of like the christmas tree) are always free.

The designer of this is a contractor himself. From what I know, he's retiring soon from contracting and will be using these to supplement his income. They're worth every penny,my opinion, even if they did go up in cost a bit since then.

We actually bought some single markers with the graduated posts (dont recall where we bought - McMaster Carr maybe) and took our old stanley to a machine shop and had them replicate us 3 or 4. Used the posts out of the ones we bought in the machined bodys.
Otherwise, yes, I too occasionally search ebay for good deals on these markers

I just got the McMaster Carr scribe. It is made General. The scale is a bit hard to read for me, bu I am sure in time, after a bit of wear, it will read just fine.

We have several of the Stanleys, though we used to have lots more (they disappear over time :/ ). We did the same thing with the Generals from McMaster Carr and a machine shop fabricating a double poster. Did find someone making a double poster though:

We have a few of the durodyne "christmas tree" type scribes laying around the shop. As Bob pointed outm they used to be free in rolls of flex connetor. I choose to do what Bordontn says and make my own out of 16g stainless scrap. It tales two or three minutes to layout and cut, and they last a while. We have ones that range from 1/4" up through 4" I believe.
