I need to cut down an oak dowel 5/8 to fit in a 5/8 hole. They do not seem to make a 9/16 version. I tried sanding on it outside for about 15 minutes with not making progress. I finally put my belt sander in my vise upside down and it worked pretty fast but there was dust everywhere. Can you think of an easy way to do this without making a lot of dust? I do not have a lathe. I was thinking maybe a piece of curved broken glass would work but I have not tried it. What do you think?
