I recently purchased the Jessem Dowel jig. So far the jig works great, haven’t really put it through the paces yet but I’m sure it will perform great. I have been looking around the net for fluted dowel stock. Not the pins, those are everywhere. I would like to have some long stock, so I can make the dowels what ever length I want. I can get the smooth ones, but not the fluted. Has anyone out there in LJ land found a supplier of these. I would love to know.

I’ll post a review of the jig after I use it a bit more.

thank you

the largest I’ve seen was a Chinese dowel pin that was 6inches… I wonder if you could somehow make a “contraption” with like nails of something that would cut into the dowel? Some sort of Ring with the nails or cutting pins in to all the way around.

Sears used to make a tool where you drove the dowels through a steel device and it fluted the dowel. You could use any length dowel and as I remember it, there were 4 or 5 diameter openings.

I still have it but don’t know if they still make it.
