Custom Size Dowel Pins

 What is a dowel pin? 

A dowel pin is a cylindrical fastener made from plastic or metal, that is inserted into two adjacent pieces to hold them together. Dowel pins are used as pivots, hinges shafts, jigs and fixtures to hold parts. Mechanical engineers will use them in design as reference point to control positioning and minimize variation or play in component alignment.
