Looks very similar to the one Rockler has been selling for years.

What advantage is there over the Rockler Simple Scribe?

Simply not adjustable enough to be a useful product...they need holes in 1/32" increments

For those of us who rarely scribe, we can easily bore a pencil hole on a scrap block... or use a compass. I have had too many gadgets in my shop that don't get used at all that, not because of money, I try to justify a purchase based on needs and usage whenever possible.

For regular wall/floor scribe the "Thingamajig" is probably the best scribe tool.  It wont work well if you are trying to scribe to something with a heavy texture or tight irregularities like a brick wall.  The carbide cutter helps if you are working with anything that likes to chip or wood that likes to splinter.

OK, thanks, didn't pick up on that. So basically similar but a metric version.
