Milescraft - 8-Piece Dowel Tenon Center Set
Milescraft® 8-piece Dowel Tenon Center Set contains two each of the most popular dowel holes sizes. These dowel centers allow you align dowel holes in drilled parts to accurately mark drill...
• Zinc plated steel with tapered sides and large flange
• Two 1/4" dowel centers for 1/4" dowel holes
• Two 5/16" dowel centers for 5/16" dowel holes and 1/4" dowel pins
• Two 3/8" dowel centers for 3/8" dowel holes and 5/16" dowel pins
• Two 1/2" dowel centers for 1/2" dowel holes and 3/8" dowel pins
I have tried different approaches over the years. These definitely make it easier to position dowels.
A handy gadget to have
Because the price was so reasonable, not only did I buy the centers, I bought three sets (which results in 6 centers of each size). The desirability of having at least six of each size I think is obvious. Actually I already have two doweling jigs ... both WolfCraft. One is a hand held device which is taken to the work piece while the other is a device that is secured to a table and so the work piece is taken to this jig. I wanted these dowel centers as a compliment to these other two jigs for use when using one of the jigs may not be practical. And not only would I recommend these to a friend ... I already have.
