Checkering is the art of producing the checkered patterns on the grips of firearms using a small tool and extreme precision. Doiron is one of the most well-respected names in the check tool production industry and offers their own line of Doiron carbide checkering tools that are both hand and power tools.

Powered Checkering Head

The Doiron powered checking head mounts to a pencil-like rod that spins the head like a circular saw blade. The miniature blade cuts through the material leaving the checker patternmakers grooves perfect, helping to eliminate errors made by hand tools and saving a significant amount of time to an already lengthy process.

Multi Line Tool

The Doiron multi-line tool is just what it says it is. It creates multiple lines in one cut, from 18 to 32 lines per inch, in fact. This is another time-saving tool from Doiron. The adjustable carbide blade depth allows you to cut even lines with a lesser depth and go over the lines for the final depth with a simple set screw adjustment.

Push and Pull Scraping Tool

The scraping tools carve individual lines using either a pushing or pulling motion. The line forms by consistently scraping in a linear direction to form a perfect groove. The depth of these tools is not adjustable, but you can sharpen the carbide blase or discard a used one for replacement. The push pull tools are the original checkering tools used by gun and stock-smiths and are still common today by craftsmen all over the world.
