Freeman Square-Head Steel Dowels


The familiar square head of these dowels remains one of the best methods of offering a sturdy bearing surface for the inserting wrench to grasp. Those dowels which have been frozen in threads by foundry use can be removed with adjustable wrenches.

All parts of one size are interchangeable, so changes in pin length or bushing length are possible without completely reworking the job. Offering good wear resistance and high strength, these dowels are commonly used for aluminum, gray iron, brass or plastic pattern equipment and are especially useful for shell mold and hot box pattern equipment.

Sold individually and in box quantities. See the Dowel Dimensions Guide under Additional Information for sizing details.

Please note: These dowels replace the discontinued Master Metal Dowels. Freeman Square-Head Dowels offer equivalent sizes. Please contact Customer Service for details or questions.



Freeman Square Head Steel Dowel is an alternative to the Master Metal Dowel.
