Rotating-head pen holder — for Classic Scriber
Upgrade the performance of your Classic scriber with these pen holders.
The pen holder can be rotated 360° for any 'angle of attack' to touch the log. The scribe setting does not change when you rotate the pen holder.
I did not design these pen-holders—but they are made at the same CNC shop in Germany that makes my Chambers Classic Scriber. I buy the rotating pen-holders, and sell them here because they are a perfect match for my Classic scribers.
Here's what this means: if you want, you can use a rotating pen-holder in just one leg of your Chambers Classic Scriber, because these rotating pen-holders were designed to be the same length as my Classic Scriber holding a standard Staedtler Lumocolor 318 "F" pen.
You might be able to use this pen-holder in other models of scribers —
QUICK TIP to see if it might fit your scriber: if a Staedtler Lumcolor 318 pen fits into your scriber, and your scriber grips it tightly, then you might be able to use this rotating pen-holder in your scriber.
BUT, I offer no guarantee that this will work in your scriber, and I have not tried to fit this into any other manufacturer's scriber. Use with other models of scribers is at your risk: and there are no returns and no exchanges allowed on this item if used in any non-Chambers scriber.
These ARE guaranteed to work in my Chambers Classic Scriber, and are an excellent upgrade for one, or for both, legs.
If I am using just one rotating pen-holder, then I usually put it in the upper leg of the Classic scriber, and use a Staedtler Lumocolor 318 Fine, or the stainless steel 'dummy' in the lower leg.
"PSG" Fisher Space Pen refills are available from Amazon.com, and from Fisher Space Pen. Sometimes called a "Super Giant Plotter" pen (PSG)—it is 2-inches long, and 0.45 inches diameter. This is the ONLY pen that can be used in the rotating pen-holder.
You must use ONLY the 2-inch long PSG. There are other lengths of the PSG, and they will NOT work.
You can use PSGM (medium) or, if your can find it, you can use PSGB (bold).
The CNC shop just raised our cost to manufacture by 8%. I have had to reflect this in current (mid-2022) pricing.
REMEMBER to order pens for this! A pen is not included.
