In Detail

The right tool to choose if you wish to make exact sized dowels from any solid timber. The dowel plate is a rectangle 130mm(5.1/8") x 38mm(1.1/2"), 6.3mm(1/4") thick of surface ground A-2 cryogenically treated tool steel, a very humble looking but nonetheless a very precise tool. The holes are machined with a 6° clearance on the underside but are straight for the first 0.025". The tool can be sharpened many times without any change in the size of the holes, but quite frankly at 60 Rockwell it is doubtful whether it will ever need sharpening. Metric plate to cut 3mm, 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm & 16mm dowels.

Best thing ever!

The dowels which you can buy in stores are sometimes slightly bigger than nominal diameter of a hole. This plate can fix these. In my case dowels (with nominal diameter 8 mm) which i bought had real diameter 8,15 mm and after using of this plate it came down to 8,0 mm. Brilliant! Very well made thing!

I've been refurbishing some old oak furniture, and needed some oak dowels to match the tenon joints. This dowel plate is so easy to use, and quickly produces dowels of the right size. An excellent way to ensure a perfect colour match.
