If you are a woodworker, you need the Rockler Center/Offset Marking Tool. This tool makes marking any blank faster and easier. Using the integrated holder (complete with a hole for the pencil lead), you can easily mark the center of the thickness of a board. The offset markings allow you to make lines parallel to the edges of the blank. You could also use the tool to set the depth of a cut for a table saw or the drilling depth of a drill bit. It includes a magnet and holding slot so you can attach it to a metal tool along with a pencil.
The tool is available for $9.99 plus S&H from Rockler, 800-279-4441, www.Rockler.com.
