WDS Component Parts Ltd. can supply a wide range of dowel pins from stock, with the option of next day delivery should that be required. Dowel pins are also known as engineers’ precision dowels and steel dowels.

These dowel pins are used to accurately locate and position parts and components in an almost-infinite range of manufacturing and assembly operations. They are precision engineered to exacting tolerances and are available in hardened and ground steel with a Silver Steel variant. Metric dowel pins are available in sizes m6 (3 to 20) 10 to 100mm long and imperial (inch) dowels sized at 1/8 inch to 1/2 inch diameter and 1/2 inch to 3 inch long versions complete the range offered by WDS.

Variations on the basic design include: plain dowels, extractable dowels, and extractable Silver Steel dowels. (Silver Steel is a high carbon tool steel that can be ground to very close tolerances and has a highly polished finish. Dowels made from Silver Steel can be considered to be precision components.)

Like all WDS products, the dowels are manufactured to internationally recognised and accredited quality standards which are regularly and independently audited. Full details of the engineers’ dowel range can be found here
