In Detail

Make dowels to perfectly match a project or from a specific species of timber. The Veritas dowel cutter and a few timber off-cuts will do the job. The carbon-steel blade in the plated zinc alloy body is adjustable. They work equally well in soft, green or hard woods. The curved blade is relatively easy to sharpen when required. Hand held like a pencil sharpener, they put accurate tenons on the tips of turnings or rustic furniture components. Alternatively using a cordless drill, you need only cut square stock slightly oversize (1.5mm is ample). Use one of the Veritas 1/2" drive sockets for the 3/8" and 7/16" cutters or a 5/8" drive for the 1/2"cutter). You may also need a 3/8" sq drive to 1/4" hex adaptor, to use with these drives and power the stock through the dowel cutter. Imperial sizes only available 3/8"(9.5mm), 7/16"(11mm) and 1/2"(12.7mm).

cool

This is the coolest tool I've ever bough, i found it very hard to stop using it and almost turned all my wood into dowels. I used to make dowel by banging a square bit of wood through a round hole like a caveman and ending up with bruised hand due to missing the wood with the hammer, this is far quicker and produces planed smooth dowels.

I purchased the square drive socket too and it work fine for me. I am thrilled with my purchase, probably going to by the other too sizes too eventually

Great tool but get the drive right

This tool cuts great dowels but it took sometime to work out how to set it up with the drill. Don't bother using a drill adaptor and a socket, the end of the wood just breaks up after a few turns. It has worked best if you turn the blank in the cutter a few times by hand or with a spanner to give it a round end and then put the end directly into your drill and tighten the chuck. I've got a great long 600mm dowel that way without any problems

Excellent Product

I have all three of the sizes Veritas makes. I have used these to make my own Purple Heart, Ipe, Tiger Wood, Oak, and other hard wood dowels. I have never had a problem making them from 12 inches to four or five feet -- provided a support is used to prevent them from waving around when they get over about two feet and breaking (jig suggestion in the instructions, but I just ask my wife to make an circle with her gloved hand around it as it comes out). I made a jig so I could easily clamp the cutter down, and so the shavings would drop into a bucket. The only downside is all the shaving, but hey, that is how turning works.

Exellent

I love this, have used for both ash and oak with no problems. Had to adjust the blade to get it to work the first time. Lovely smooth dowels and have used to create tapperd tenons on turned pieces. Stick one end of wood in drill driver and wizz it through or turn it by hand for nice big wrist muscles.

dowel

Needed a bit of adjustment but I now have 10 to 11 mm dowels. Worth getting for sure.
