The Scribe-Master Cope-pro, a must have jig in the United Kingdom for the past two years, is finally available in the United States and Canada. Its revolutionary design is perfect for fast, efficient and accurate cutting of baseboard and chair rail profiles on every work piece, every time. In fact, it is up to 10 times faster than manual copes and is quick and easy to set up and use.
“As we’ve found here in the UK, the Scribe-Master Cope-Pro has many features and benefits that carpenters, cabinet makers and contractors will, once they see what it can do, want it on their jobsite or in their shop,” said Paul Thomas, marketing director of Scribe-Master.
How it works
It has a series of stainless steel combs set out in series to form a profile copier (each 0.2 inches thick) and with the included tool, the combs are individually pushed into a sample work piece and locked into place, giving a negative copy profile. The comb assembly is then turned over and, using a 1/4- or 1/2-inch router and a copy pin, the user follows the negative copy contour allowing the router to cut a perfect cope. It can cope any shape of baseboard or chair rail in just seconds, is adjustable for out-of-plumb walls, and cuts both left and right hand copes once set up. It also makes easy work of joints, such as tenon, dado, half and lap, to name a few, with an accessory sold separately.
Made in the United Kingdom of high pressure laminate and stainless steel, the Scribe-Master Cope-Pro comes pre-assembled and ready to use as a standalone unit or can be quickly mounted onto your miter saw stand with the optional mount kit, sold separately.
It has a 2-year limited warranty and comes with an ¼-inch HSSE twin flute spiral cutter, screws, work-piece clamp and comb alignment tool along with full instructions.
The Scribe-Master Cope-Pro, model SMP11, retails for $399 and is available at Amazon.com.
