Dowel Tenon Center Set - 8 Piece
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 location in mating material. Next larger size dowel centers slip over dowel pins and round tenons...
• 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.
