Master Metal Dowels


Master Metal Dowels are designed for use with metal patterns, core boxes, blow molds and roto molds. The shoulders on both the pin and the bushing are tapered to form a wedge that accurately centers both parts of the dowel and prevents the dowel from coming loose.

These quality dowels are precision machined from special alloy steel, hardened and black penetrated to inhibit rust. They are constructed to withstand the continuous use found in high production foundries.

The No. 1 and No. 2 Master Metal Dowels are designed with a broached head. The broach design makes it possible to screw the dowel into the pattern or core box tighter, decreasing the chance of the dowel becoming loose in the foundry.

Master Metal Dowels - No. 3, No. 4, and long type have been discontinued. Freeman Square Head Steel Dowels pin & bushing can be used in its place.

Master Metal #1 and #2 Dowels will be discontinued once inventory has been depleted. Please see Freeman Square Head Steel Dowel for an alternative selection.
