Description

If your project needs super strong joints, steel cross dowels and bolts are the way to go. We stock cross dowels with 10-24, 1/4 -20 and 3/8-16 through holes. We also stock Grade 5 Bolts to go along with them.

Our new 3/8-16 Cross Dowels are ideal for workbench frames and trestle tables. They can withstand high torque values and provide extremely secure right angle joints. A slot in end simplifies alignment with bolt.

Cross dowel dimensions are D = Diameter of drill bit, L = Length of Cross Dowel. Actual diameter is slightly less then drill size to aid in alignment with bolt hole.

Cross dowels for bedframes are strongest

Review Summary

I used these cross dowels on a reproduction bunk bed I made for my twin boy grandchildren. Knowing that I would need the strongest joint possible I went with these. I laid out the hole measurements very carefully and these went together super easy, as though they were cut on a CNC machine. If you've looked for these before then you'll know that it's hard to find the larger sizes of these, but Woodpecker has the best selection and prices of sizes.
And if you've read any of my other reviews then you'll know that I searched for the best deal before purchasing and these were.
