A wise man once said time is of the essence. So Trend very helpfully created the Scribe Master Pro. When it comes to saving time there are few better items than Trend’s scribing jig.
We take a look at why this product is the ultimate time-saver for carpenters, joiners and other professional tradespeople.
Trend Scribe Master Pro features
- Fully variable, cuts left and right hand scribes
- Up to 195mm tall boards and maximum 32mm thickness
- Minimum length of component is 300 mm
- Scribes profiles into kitchen plinths
- Scribes warped boards accurately
- Can be used on out-of-plumb walls
- Made from High Pressure Laminate for stability

Once set up, the Scribe Master Pro is capable of cutting precise scribes in just 15 seconds, making it up to ten times faster than creating scribes manually.
Indeed, to ensure such quick, effective work all you need in combination with the jig is a medium or heavy duty plunge router, such as the Trend T10EK or T11EK, with a 30mm guide bush fitted.
- Skirting boards
- Dado rails
- Warped boards

Scribing is a job required by carpenters and joiners on a very regular basis, so it’s worth adopting the time is money approach. The Trend Scribe Master Pro is designed to save time on scribing without compromising on the quality of your cuts. Whereas the use of a coping saw, for instance, is time consuming.
Essentially, the use of a Scribe Master Pro allows you to cut corners in the literal sense without taking any shortcuts. It results in a more efficient performance, allowing you to allocate more time to other tasks.
Furthermore, our Trend Scribe Master Pro comes with a cutter specifically made for the jig. The 4mm cobal steel downward spiral twin fluted unit is extremely strong, meaning it can cut in a single pass without bending.
However, the cutter doesn’t bend so it’s important not to go overboard and snap it. If you let the cutter do the work and don’t force it then the results will speak for themselves.
Give it a go
In conclusion, the Scribe Master Pro is a fantastic item. It may look complex on first glance but each component has a purpose and, crucially, the jig is fully assembled and ready to use. It may take a little bit of getting used to but once you become accustomed to it you’ll never look back.
