Was looking for "extreme duty" cross dowels for a bench that will be getting hard use. I used it on a trestle leg set made from Cherry. I wanted a more "utility" look and the exposed hardware against the warm cherry was a nice accent.

Be aware of the threads on this item. It is 12 TPI not the normal 13. It is clearly stated on the site! however, the 12 TPI did not register with me until after I had laid out and drilled the 12 holes in a very large work bench project. Rather than the 51/2 inch length supplied I needed 7 inch and 10 inch bolts. I headed out to the BB and no luck. Not to be swayed my favorite nut & Bolt shop has everything....wrong again. I have now spent hours on the net trying to find a supplier of 1/2 inch bolts with 12TPI. No luck. I have learned that 1/2 bolts with 12TPI went out in the early 1900s. This is a problem. On the other hand, as long as the length is right, I think it would be a very good product.
"I have made several online orders from Rockler, and the customer service has been great. While I have not had an unreasonable number of complications, I have had a few. Each time the folks at Rockler were very quick to respond, easy to work with and resolved the issue in the best way imaginable. Many thanks! I will be a customer for many years to come." -
