Incra Precision Marking Tool

The Incra Precision Marking Tool is a radical new tool for your measuring needs. Crafted from a thin stainless steel, the Incra Precision Marking Tool can take a lot of punishment in your wood shop.

Featuring tiny holes at increments as small as 1/32”, measuring is quick, easy and accurate. Rules can be purchased in the following sizes: 6”,12”, !8’, 3” x 2” pocket size, as well as 150mm, 300mm, and 10” decimal/mm.

While the Incra Precision Marking Tool is made from the finest stainless steel, it is quite thin. Proper storage is necessary to keep your tool accurate. Beware of the corners as they are very sharp, which gives a precise measurement, but will get your fingers if you aren’t careful!

Although the Incra Precision Marking Tool may look a little intimidating at first glance, this rule is actually quite easy to use. Just locate the proper corresponding hole, and using a .5mm pencil, make your mark. I recommend using a mechanical pencil for marking, instead of the old-fashioned I need to be sharpened just when I have my ruler where I want it type.

While other rules may lie flat against the wood, the Incra Precision Marking Tool has the advantage of being thin which, in turn, makes it more accurate. Think about it – a bulky ruler with no holes to mark in might get you the correct measurement, but it is still your eyesight and the maybe-not-so-accurate markings on the old-fashioned wooden ruler you are perhaps using. I wear trifocals, and could never trust my eyes to “sight” a piece!

Measuring your wood is so very important, and one wrong cut makes an improperly fitting joint, uneven corners and results in an unprofessional looking piece. If you are spending your time and hard earned dollars to create something beautiful, you want the best in tools to work with.The Incra Precision Marking Tool is a must have for any serious wood crafter.
