Default Daisy pin router-smaller pins needed

I purchased a daisy pin router to cut out small wood pieces for craft projects. The smallest pin that comes with the set is 1/4" but I need to cutout a smaller area of 1/8" between some sections? Does any one know if there is a smaller pin available, I have been to product site but no luck. Since the pins screw into the overhead arm I wasn't sure if one could be made easily or not either.

Hi

" smaller pin available " = not that I know about but you can make your own easy,just stop by a ACE hardware and pick some brass bolts or brass rod, cut off the head and chuck the stud in your drill motor and grind it down to 1/8",,easy stuff..

You can also get a rod coupling nuts at ACE.

Are you suggesting brass because it is easier to grind down? We did look at a couple of near by hardware stores but the size needed is metric so it is hard to find in brass. We did pick up a couple in stainless steel but I suspect that will difficult to grind. Also, we don't have grinder but we do have some grinding wheels that fit on a drill. Any tips for the grinding process?

Hi

" metric " = ?, you may want to check it one more time..(5/16-18 the norm)
Brass is soft and stainless is hard to rework, (the norm 18.8 ,304 stainless steel)
grinder wheel on the drill is going to be hard to do but with some work it can be done, I would suggest clamping the drill down on to a 2 x 4 " L" block and drill a hole in the stock for the stud, that will let it just fit in and turn the stud with a pair of vise grips. it's going to get very hot...have some water near by


Good Luck

Seemed odd to us too but we needed a bolt that was a M8-1.25 We took it with us and had to try several before realizing that the metric one was the only one that fit. I think they said it was a small or narrow thread size also.

We were thinking we would bolt the the griding wheel down and use the bolt/rod in the drill method you mentioned before.

Hi

Just one more way,,pickup a 1/8" steel dowel pin and Drill a hole, to just press/tap in the pin.
