For modest manufacturing volumes, wood dowels are typically manufactured on industrial dowel machines based on the same principles as the rotary cutters described above. Such machines may employ interchangeable cutting heads of varying diameters , thus enabling the machines to be quickly changed to manufacture different dowel diameters.

Typically, the mechanism is open-ended, with material guides at Cross Dowel Bolt 70mm Keyboard the machine's entry and exit to enable fabrication of continuous dowel rod of unlimited length. Since the 19th century, some of these dowel machines have had power feed mechanisms to move the stock past the cutting mechanism.

High-volume dowel manufacturing is done on a wood shaper , which simultaneously forms multiple dowels from a single piece of rectangular stock i.

These machines employ two wide, rotating cutting heads, one above the stock and one below it. The heads have nearly identical cutting profiles so that each will form an array of adjoined, side-by-side "half dowels". The heads are aligned to each other and one head is shaped to make deeper cuts along the dowel edges so as to part the stock into individual dowel rods, resulting in a group of dowel rods emerging in parallel at the machine's output. The wooden dowel rod used in woodworking applications is commonly cut into dowel pins, which are used to reinforce joints and support shelves and other components in cabinet making.

Some woodworkers make their own dowel pins, while others purchase dowel pins precut to the required length and diameter. When dowels are glued into blind holes , a very common case in dowel-based joinery , there must be a path for air and excess glue to escape when the dowel is pressed into place.

If no provision is made to relieve the hydraulic pressure of air and glue, hammering the dowel home or clamping the joint can split the wood.

An old solution to this problem is to plane a flat on the side of the dowel; some sources suggest planing the flat on the rough stock before the final shaping of the round dowel. When two pieces of wood are to be joined by dowels embedded in blind holes, there are numerous methods for aligning the holes. For example, pieces of shot may be placed between the wood pieces to produce indentations when the pieces are clamped together; after the clamp is released, the indentations indicate the center points for drilling.

Various commercial systems, such as Dowelmax , have been devised to solve this problem. Alternative joinery methods may be used in place of conventional dowel pins, such as Miller dowels, biscuit joiners , spline joints , and proprietary tools such as the Domino jointer. The word dowel was used in Middle English ; it appears in Wycliffe's Bible translation circa in a list of the parts of a wheel: " Wooden dowels have been used in manufacturing and woodworking for many centuries.

One of the earliest documented uses of wooden dowels was in Japanese shrines in AD , [ citation needed ] which were constructed using only wood, wooden dowels and pegs, and interlocking joints. Around AD , Leif Erikson sailed across the North Atlantic in a ship that was largely constructed of overlapping planks held together by wooden dowels [ citation needed ] and iron nails.

The wooden dowels did not rust and thus were more reliable than iron for long expeditions. Metal dowels or dowel pins are often used as precise locating devices in machinery. Steel dowel pins are machined to tight tolerances , as are the corresponding holes, which are typically reamed. A dowel pin may have a smaller diameter than its hole so that it freely slips in, or a larger diameter so that it must be pressed into its hole an interference fit.

When designing mechanical components, mechanical engineers typically use dowel holes as reference points to control positioning variations and attain repeatable assembly quality. If no dowels are used for alignment e. Typical drilling and milling operations, as well as manufacturing practices for bolt threads, introduce mechanical play proportional to the size of the fasteners. For example, bolts up to 10 mm 0.

And size can even vary by dowel pin material. Metric dowel pins are often found in two size. In DIN standard the dowel pins are slightly larger than the nominal value. For example a 3 mm dowel pin will range from 3. In the ISO standard the dowel pins are slightly smaller - 3 mm nominal range is 2.

The terminology e. In inch pins "oversized" refers to pins that are more significantly oversized for worn out dowel pin holes. The most common inch sized pins are slightly oversized, Cross Dowel Bolt 70mm Kit and "undersized" versions are also available.

In automobiles, dowels are used when precise mating alignment is required, such as in differential gear casings, engines, and transmissions. Bolts in a bolted joint often have an important function as a dowel, resisting shear forces. For this reason, many bolts have a plain unthreaded section to their shank. This gives a closer fit to the hole and also avoids some problems with fretting wear when a screw thread bears against an unthreaded component.
