  • Scriber and base are designed for direct reading from zero (bottom of base)
  • Quick-adjust release on the slide allows for fast positioning
  • Extremely fine adjustments by a knob on the base isolating the column and slide from external pressures
  • Additional remote fine adjustment located on top of the bar for sizes 36 (900mm) and larger
  • Special master bar design and the balanced design and weight of the base eliminates vibration
  • Master bars on models up to 24 and 600mm are hardened and stabilized
  • Base is hardened, ground, and lapped square with the bar and has finger grooves to provide ease of movement
  • Vertical bar is positioned near the center of the base for balance and stability
