I work with a lot of Red Cedar and was having a hard time finding matching plugs. With this set I can cut plugs from scrap cedar that blends in perfect.

Works like a charm
I have used these on my drill press. I didn't think I would need the self centering feature, but it sure helps in positioning the plugs close together to save wood.

I need a 3/8" plug cutter now. The set will come in handy I think.
Jerry C on Jun 9, 2015
Self centering plug cutters come in handy when you want to cover screw heads in finished wood. They allow you to give the piece an interesting look and they provide another way for a woodworker to fasten two different pieces of wood together.
Brian M on Jun 1, 2015

How deep will this cut?
Steve N on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used a 3/4 " board to cut the plugs then cut them loose with the bandsaw. The plugs are 1/2 " long. I was pleased with the way they turned out.
What size plug do I need to make for a # 8 screw?
Dale C on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have #8 wood screws with a head diameter ranging from .305 to .328. The straight answer would be to use a 3/8 [.375] plug. However, if your project would look better with a smaller plug, and you don't need to many screws, you could alter the diameter of the head on a grinding wheel, which would allow you to go with a 5/16 [.312] plug. Good luck...
How long is the finished dowel?
Nicholas M on Jul 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: One inch or less. I cut plugs from quarter sawn spruce and the end result was a ver rough plug. Hardwood might work a finer plug.
