I suggest that a lot of information is available for you from the folloaing link
So click on : Dowel Rod manufacturing and you can have a lot off information.

You will need some assistance from a wood lathe/machine shop for getting better results.

Please respond if this info is useful

Rtm model 9034 framing manual nailer

Hi, If the tool doesn't have a depth of drive control (Found either by the trigger or, on the safety element) you can get around this by adjusting the air pressure from the compressor. Just make sure that you have plenty of scrap timber to experiment as, when the adjustment has been made, the line pressure is still as it was. Firing a nail to cycle the tool once will allow the new pressure to be the norm. (If this makes sense?)

How to set time

You need to match the marks on your timing belt. The two marks are at 12 o'clock. You should be able to view the mark by taking off the easiest cover, the one in front. You can turn the crankshaft to move it into position. You'll need a compression guage in the number one spark plur hole. Place the guage dial where you can see it while turning the crankshaft balancer hub. Turn it clockwise until you see compression building up on the guage. If you did not see compression build up, continue one more complete turn to achieve TDC for the number one cylinder. Remove the guage. Through the number one cylinder spark plug hole, insert a section of wooden dowel or plastic rod and slowly push it down until it reaches the top surface of the piston crown. With the dowel or rod in place, slowly rotate the crankshaft clockwise until the dowel or rod is pushed upward, stops, and then starts to move back down. At this point, rotate the crankshaft slightly counterclockwise until the dowel or rod has reached its upper most travel. At this point, the number one piston is at TDC.

I have an old octagon barrel 22 long rifel model 61 . the rod sleeve has a dimple 8" inches into it so, the rod won't go in at that point how can I fix this problem ?oh yes , it is an old winchester...

Nice rifle! It depends on the shape and depth of the dent, but I think you might be able to push it out from the inside. If it's not too deep or cracked, you can try this method:
1. measure the inside diameter of the rod sleeve (called a tubular magazine). Sorry, I don't have one, so I can't tell you exactly what this measurement is.
2. Go to you local hardware store and buy a hardwood dowel rod that is just slightly smaller in diameter than the tube.
3. Round over the end of the dowel slightly with some sandpaper, clean and wipe it down with gun oil.
4. Slide the dowel into the tube until it reaches the dent, and tap it until it begins to pass that point. Don't let it go too far past, or it will be difficult to pull back out. Don't force the dowel into the tube if it doesn't slide freely (up to the point of the dent) or you won't be able to remove it. And don't push it past the point where you can grip it securely.
5. Pull the dowel back out, rotate slightly, and repeat.

But, use your best judgement: If it doesn't look like this method will work based on the shape and depth of the dent, you should take it to a competent gunsmith, and let them sort it out. Assuming that the rest of the rifle is in good condition, you have a classic that's worth repairing. Best of luck!

Will this drive half inch rebar through 12 or more inches of landscape timber in a retaining wall?

Yes, but I usually drill a hole just a bit smaller then the rod so that the rod does not split the landscape timbers....
You can buy ship auger bits up to 12" long and they drill through the landscape timber fairly well...

My plunger will not reset

Hi There,

The most popular way of re-setting the driver to top dead centre is to take the nails out of the tool, find a peice of scrap timber, make sure that the air is not connected to the airline at this time then, put the tool onto the timber as though you're going to use it. Push the nose down & pull the trigger. While ayou are doing this re connect the airline to the tool. This should correct the problem.

Usually, this will happen to any make of tool. It is just a fact of life & now way is a bad mark against the brand!

Good Luck!

Front forks

Remove the spring caps but leave the springs in. Compress the front suspension fully. Find a rod or wood dowel that will slide easily down the middle of the spring. Mark it 6 - 7 inches from the end. Insert the rod/dowel to the mark. The bottom of the stick is the proper level of fluid, in most cases. Please buy a service manual!

The hinges on the kitchen cupboard door have fallen off leaving large holes in the contiboard. How can I fix this ? Do I have to drill new holes ?

Simplest, neatest fix for this is to drill the holes larger, then plug them with a piece of dowel glued in with yellow wood glue. Wait overnight for the glue to dry before drilling new small holes in the dowels (same location as the original). The fit of the dowels in the enlarged holes is important. Many cheap dowels are poorly sized, or sized before they are dry - so do a trial fit in wood scraps before you drill the larger holes in your cabinets. Take the scrap of wood with you to try the dowels before you buy them. You should be able to insert the dowel in the hole by hand, but it should not wiggle around. If the holes in the cabinet are into the narrow (3/4 inch) edge of a board and the fit is too tight, you will split the board - especially if the board is particle board. You can mitigate this by clamping the thickness of the board when you insert the dowel, leaving the clamp in place while the glue dries. If the board is already split, then spread the split a little and get some glue into the crack before you insert the dowel. And if you carefully control the depth of the hole you drill (perhaps by putting a piece of tape on the drill bit) and making the dowels just a little bit shorter than the depth of the hole, then you can install the dowel flush so you don't have to trim it off. But for this to be practical you need to be able to cut the dowels squarely and neatly - or sand the end nice and square before you insert it. Wipe off the excess glue before it dries.
Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have the big cone or spool of thread, the thread thing is sideways and only holds smaller spools..., can it be adapted so that I can put the big cone of thread on?

Hi! There are thread stands for the big cone of thread that you can buy. They stand off to one side or behind the machine, with a hook or guide at the top. The thread feeds through there and then onto your machine.
If you're a crafty-type person, one could probably be made from a dowel rod, a square base (for stability) that the dowel rod would fit into with some sort of hook or eye at the top. I haven't made one since I don't use cones of thread except on my serger, but I think it would be fairly easy to made. .
Hope this helps.

I need to repair internal wires

Typically you have to unstring the guitar to get access to the insides.

Use a small miirror to view the insides. You may need to drag the jack out of the sound hole to resolder wires if they are broken. There should be three wires on the jack. One carries the audio, one the ground, and the third connects the battery when the instrument cable is plugged in.

After re-soldering the connections if needed, procure a piece of 1/4 inch wood dowel from your hardware store. Push the dowel through the hole where the jack goes and near the sound hole. Push the jack onto the dowel and then pull it back through the jack hole and pass the nut over the dowel and onto the jack threads and tighten. The extract the dowel rod from the jack.

It is near impossible to reach clear into the guitar body to put the jack back in without the dowel rod unless you have very tiny arms.

I have two mcclloch timber bear chain saws 3.4 and I'm looking for two throttlelinkage rodsthe one from the carb. to the trigger

I found a 13-600041-34 Timber Bear IPL here:
On the "General Assembly" Illustration, item 71, is a "Rod, Throttle". An Internet search for McCulloch 214504 returns many sites showing this part in stock.

I make no claim this is your saw or this is the part you seek. I defer to you to ensure applicability.

McCulloch IPLs
There are also
13-60041-35 and -36 (often part of serial number). I saw no other prefixes used with 600041. Again I am human and do err.

In a pinch a piece of hobby store piano wire and a couple pair of pliers can probably be used to fabricate what you need.

If you have additional questions you can reply below and I will help further, HTH
