Cutting Dowels to Length - Jig

Found this on the internet
It has been around for years, back when we used to have magazine subscriptions mailed to the house.

Thought some of you might find it useful for cutting piles of dowels to a specific length.

This jig supports cutting 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" dowels to common lengths.
But you can modify it to cut any diameter of dowels to common lengths or custom lengths.
Need to cut a larger diameter dowel, then make one using a 2x4.

Once you have completed the cut - rotate the stopper and push the dowel out - and cut another.

Pretty simple and quick.

Very nice item, Brief comment on the magazine subscription- I rather read a magazine than read on my I Pad .

Glad you posted this. I have splintered so many 1/4 dowels trying to cut them. This will be my project for tomorrow. Thanks!

Thanks Udie that great I am making one right away,
it will make it so much easer to cut.
I have 5 Mercedes Lorry already cut out ready to put together
only the dowels to cut 90 all up I think, great timing thank you.

I would sure enjoy seeing photos of the five truck production. Please post some if you get the time. Making the jig is now on my long list of things to do!
