Overview

Dowel centers allow you to precisely transfer the location of one set of dowel holes to the corresponding holes in the other half of a doweled joint. Just drill one set of holes, slip in the dowel centers and press the joint together. The pins on the dowel centers will precisely mark the hole locations on the other member. Available in four different sizes (each includes eight transfer pins of whichever size you choose): 1/4", 5/16", 3/8" and 1/2". Also available in a complete set, which includes two transfer pins of each size (eight pieces total). Made from plated steel.

Technical Details:
  • Four different sizes to choose from.
  • Sold in packs of 8, or as a set
  • Set includes 8 dowel centers. Two of each size: 1/4" , 5/16" , 3/8" and 1/2"

I had purchased a bookcase kit...

Thomas T from Excelsior Springs, MO Posted July 3, 2011
I had purchased a bookcase kit from[discount store]and when attempting to install the top section found that the predrilled holes were not in the right location. I tried measuring with a trisquare but it did not work, was off a little. Found these dowel centers in Rockler catalog and purchased them. Used the 5/16" centers and drilled the new holes and walla, perfect fit. Strongly suggest these for any application requiring dowels.

Used to install a counter top...

Mike R from Sandia Park, NM Posted February 26, 2011
Used to install a counter top where it was impossible to align the holes any other way. Didn't want to use screws or nails through a nice thick piece of mahogany so I doweled it in place.

Very convenient and useful. Used these...

Jim C from Jay, ME Posted November 21, 2008
Very convenient and useful. Used these for the first time just the other day and they fit the holes snugly and leave a noticeable impression when the part to be aligned is struck with a hammer. Definitely helps to align parts and ensure holes are accurately drilled. Glad that I purchased a set of these and will probably get a second set.
