Bullet Type Baseboard Alignment Dowel

Price is for one assembly.
Two assemblies are needed per joint.

These dowels offer the same ease of fitting as the cabinet makers dowels, but with greater accuracy. Clearance varies between batches, from 0.05mm (0.002") to 0.12mm (0.005"). The bullet end is mild steel, the socket turned from brass.

Safety Note

The bullet ends in a sharp point, it is recommended that this is filed down to form a small radius.

Fitting Notes

To ensure accurate alignment each corresponding pair of baseboard ends should be clamped together & drilled as a pair. Whenever possible this should be done in a pillar drill, before assembly of the boards. To ensure that the dowels are fitted securely into the baseboards the holes should be slightly undersized. Initially the board ends should be through drilled to approximately 3mm, followed by a drill 0.5mm smaller than the dowel diameter.

The dowels can the be either pressed or lightly hammered into the baseboard end.

There is a difference in the ends of the female half, one has a slight external chamfer, this end should be inserted into the baseboard.
