Use a cordless drill and square socket to produce longer lengths of accurate dowel
Carbon-steel blade in the plated zinc-alloy body

Obtaining dowels to perfectly match a project or specific species of timber, is to say the least, almost impossible. Not so if you own a Veritas Dowel cutter and have a few timber off-cuts to hand. These cutters can be used two ways. Either use them like a hand-held pencil sharpener, to put accurate tenons on the tips of turnings or on rustic furniture components. Alternatively using a cordless drill, you need only cut square stock slightly oversize (1.5mm is ample) and use a square socket (with a 3/8″ square drive to 1/4″ hex adaptor) to power the stock through the dowel cutter. The carbon-steel blade in the plated zinc-alloy body is adjustable. Works equally well in soft, green or hard woods. The curved blade is relatively easy to sharpen when required. Imperial sizes only available 3/8″(9.5mm), 7/16″(11mm) & 1/2″(12.7mm) use the 1/2″ drive socket for the 3/8″ & 7/16″ sizes and the 5/8″ drive socket for the 1/2″ dowel. Dowel Cutters made in Canada. Patented. The four-sided square sockets have a 3/8″ square-drive end. The socket adaptor has a 1/4″ hex shank.
