    Does anyone recognize this tool? It's being used to score the outer line for a rosette to obtain a cleaner cut with the router. I have completely failed to find it on any of the Luthier supply stores or on a Google search. I found a couple of single beam compass scoring tools and a very rude & crude one using an X-Acto blade stuck in a piece of wood.

    LMI has a video on how to sharpen theirs, but I really wanted to see it in use.

    I really just want to find the source of the one in my original post out of curiosity. I would like to know who makes or sells it, what it costs, and whether it is purpose made and designed for rosettes or is more similar to the one made by Veritas. If I were to buy one, I would probably choose the Veritas model. The use of downshear/LH spiral end mills mostly negates the need for one.

    The DIY one looks like a good design.
