Answers

Neither! The ones I bought mic ed out at 0.23 inches or <6mm. (0.2" is 5mm)

Will these work to put one bed on top of a other (bunk beds)?

No. Buy a longer/thicker dowel and cut to the desired length. Something like a 4' long, 3/8" to 1/2" diameter. Cut 4 pieces off at 4". Drill the applicable size hole 2" deep on the posts and you're done.

How much weight will four of these support? I'm looking to make bookshelves.

If you are planning to join 2 boards (edge to edge) the glue is actually stronger than most wood. You might need some kind of dowling jig to get it right. If you want to attach the shelf to the wall (and really load it down), Home Depot carries a "French cleat" hanger that works really well, though much more expensive than dowel pins. Best wishes and enjoy your project.

Anyone use this or the larger size for repairing loose door hinge on a hollow core door?

Asked by Willozwisp January 8, 2018

Answer

I've used regular doweling to fix stripped out holes and they work great. These should work just as good or better since they are grooved and can grip the hole drilled for them better and have space to hold the glue too.

We actually used these, cut in half, for little doorknobs on a "leave a note" house that we recreated from an old item at my grandmother's house. So, not what they are meant for, but perfect for us.

Was desperately looking for a peg to complete a furniture set-up in which one peg was missing from the package. This item was perfect for what we needed and was easy to purchase and pick-up.
