3/16 x 1-3/4 IN Dowel Pin - Plain Alloy Steel
These pins are used to align or join two or more components in machinery, construction, and furniture making. They have many uses, such as aligning machine components during assembly for consistent results or joining stone and concrete in masonry. Use dowel pins as pivots, hinges, shafts, jigs, and fixtures to locate or hold parts. For a tight fit, your hole should be equal to or slightly smaller than the diameter shown. Breaking strength is measured as double shear, which is the force required to break a pin into three pieces.
