Veritas Cabinetmaker's Mallet
Ref: 05E1501


Wooden mallets are well suited to shop work such as driving chisels or larger carving tools. Although they tend to be bulky, the wooden striking faces are much kinder to tool handles than steel-face hammers.

Inspired by a vintage tool in the Lee Valley collection, this mallet has the best features of both wood and metal and is a direct substitute for a carpenter's mallet. The cast brass head has the mass and small size typical of a metal hammer. The 1½" diameter hardwood inserts provide wooden striking faces so you can strike chisels without mushrooming the handles. Since a cabinetmaker's mallet is used primarily with wrist action, the flat faces are in planes that intersect the handle tip, so the face is 90° to the arc of swing to prevent glancing blows. You can also choke up on the handle for work requiring greater finesse such as fine carving.

With two striking faces you can keep one smooth and clean for general work. The other face can be used for more aggressive tasks such as driving out bolts, pins, etc., without peening the ends. The 18 oz head is fitted with an 11" long hardwood handle.

Made in Canada.

Veritas Dowel Maker Master Set
Ref: 05J4520


Until now, making accurately sized dowels has been beyond the ability of the small shop and, in fact, beyond the ability of much of the dowel-making industry. Commonly available dowel rod is made from a milling process that is imprecise at best and wildly inaccurate at worst. We sell good dowel but that is not common. As broad as our selection is, it is still limited in the number of sizes and woods.

The Veritas® Dowel Maker lets you make perfectly sized dowel from 1/4" to 1" dia. in 1/16" increments, up to 4' long (or longer in the larger diameters) from any wood species you wish. The process uses two blades (both highly wear-resistant A2 tool steel), one for roughing and the other for final sizing. You just rip square stock 1/8" oversize and drive it through the dowel maker using a square socket drive in an electric drill. Following simple instructions, you set the two blades for the size you want, make a short section of dowel and then adjust the finishing blade to bring the dowel to exact size. Then run what you need. The fine adjustment is required since woods of different densities have different fiber springback when cut.

The cast and anodized aluminum body of the dowel maker comes drilled to make 1" dia. dowel and includes both 1" and 15/16" steel guide bushings. The range of blade adjustment lets you make dowel as much as 1/16" undersize (frequently an advantage when you want it slightly undersize for a sliding fit) so we include a 1/16" undersize guide bushing because the additional cost is minimal.

The body of the dowel maker incorporates micrometer adjustments in both blade-fixing mechanisms. Also included is a simple jig for precise replacement of blades when they have to be removed for sharpening. The body can be held in a vise, bolted to a bench, or anchored through a 3/4" dog hole using the optional dog assembly.

The basic dowel maker comes with the body and blades, a 1-1/8" square socket drive with drive adapter, 1" and 15/16" guide bushings, a wrench and hex keys.

Each optional insert comes with a square socket drive and two guide bushings, the nominal size and the 1/16" undersize (except for the 1/4" insert sleeve, as the lower 16th size to this, 3/16", is too weak for this process). The inserts are made of anodized aluminum and the bushings are steel. The same square drive is used for the two sizes of dowel.

The master set comes with the inserts and bushings necessary for the 13 dowel sizes from 1/4" to 1" in 1/16" increments, all in a fitted case that holds everything except the bulky main body. The case is also available separately if you choose to build your set over time.

For the first time ever, you can make precise dowel using your own lumber, in both common and unusual woods that you won't find available in dowel form.

Patented. Made in Canada.
