Just used them yesterday. Tried something new though. I made some frames with butt joints and glued them up without any type of reinforcing device, just clamped to hold until the glue dried so I could drill for the Miller dowels. Used the large size walnut for contrast on red oak and took my time and found that when the shoulder of the increasing diameter starts to cut, slow is better especially the last one. Found out also not to beat them in to hard, could split a little, had one do it. This procedure took a little longer but I am pleased with the results.
