This dowel former allows you to make dowel pins of whatever length you need. You simply drive an oversize piece of wood through the sharp-edged hole of the solid A2 tool steel insert to shear excess material from the dowels. The 3" diameter mounting plate (which can be used over a 3/4" or 20mm dog hole) has two screw holes for permanent mounting; the interchangeable inserts snap into it securely.
We offer boxed sets of a plate and the four most commonly used Imperial or metric inserts. The Imperial set includes 1/4", 5/16", 3/8" and 1/2" inserts, and the metric set includes 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm sizes.
Individual inserts can be purchased separately; the mounting plate, also sold separately, is compatible with all metric and Imperial sizes.
