Use a Dowel Plate to easily make exact-sized dowels from any wood you choose. Also useful for making precise tenons on chair spindles. 5-1/8" long x 1½" wide x ¼" thick, made from surface ground A2 Tool Steel, hardened to 60 Rockwell.
Holes are machined with a 6° clearance taper on the underside. Holes are straight for the first .025", allowing you to sharpen them without affecting the hole size. Start with pieces whittled close to your desired diameter, chamfered at the leading end, and hammer it through the appropriate hole for perfectly sized dowels. Includes two mounting holes for No. 10 flat head screws.
Standard Dowel Plate makes 1/8", 3/16", ¼", 5/16", 3/8", ½", 5/8" dowels. Metric Dowel Plate makes 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 16mm dowels.
