Hello, and welcome to the Router Forum. I wish that I could help you, but can you give us a bit more details. Also, Where are You located? Questions can be much easier to answer if we know Your location, a little. Are You wanting to cut dowels with Your Router? There are others who have much more knowledge than i do

Please fill out your profile, It helps us to know you better

Hi Steven

Rockler sales many types you may want to go to the web site and dig around I'm sure you can fine one that you can copy..
But I will ask why, you can buy dowel rod in many sizes and wood types right from the wood store..1/16" to 3" the norm..

If you want to make dowels using the router, build the Patrick Spielman jig. It feeds in square material and out comes round dowel.

Another way to do it is with a router table and a round over bit.
Make 1" dowels with a 1/2" bit. 1/2" dowels with a 1/4" bit. etc.

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

For me, I would just go to menards or home depot and pick up a few. But then I would go buy a pen too, and my brother-in-law spends hours turning pens. So some one out there likes to do almost any thing there is to do.

Hi

I must have 500+ or so pens in the glass jars in all shapes and colors and I have not used one in a long time it's almost a lost art now with cell phone and the Ipods... I can't recall when I got a real letter in the mail ,now days they are off the computer it's a joke in my house when someones wants a pen they always know I always have a marker/pencil in my pocket to mark wood with...

That's the way I do it if I need a short one or something. Just rip some stock down the the size I want and do it on the table. Gotta be between 1/4" and 1 1/2" or I run out of roundover bits though.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
