Keep your veneer edges tight while inside the press with Gummed Veneer Tape! Includes a 650 foot long roll of white 34 gram cellulose tape that measures 3/4" wide. Apply it to your joint, then as it dries, it shrinks. This shrinking action helps to hold the seam together while in the press. Perforated with a three hole pattern for ease of use, and it lets you see the seam under the tape which allows for adjusting/tightening of the seam before the tape dries.Technical Details:White 34 gram cellulose tapeMeasures 650 long x 3/4" wideShinks as it dries, keeping the seam together while it's in the press3-hole perforation pattern is easy to use and lets you see your seam while you make adjustments
Set yourself apart...Fastcap screw caps are the finishing touch to a professional job! These self-adhesive cover caps are made with high performance acrylic Ultra-Bond PSA adhesive which increases in strength as it cures, providing a long lasting permanent bond. They are fast and easy to install and adhere well to almost any surface. Made of durable PVC, unfinished wood and pre-finished real wood, they work in a wide variety of applications, like covering screw holes and RTA fittings.
Voted one of the hot new tools from the 2002 Show Circuit by Wood Magazine! Miller Dowel has reintroduced peg construction with distinct advantages over standard dowel construction.Select the best-sized Miller Dowel and corresponding Miller Dowel Drill Bit for your application. Align and secure the wood pieces to be joined. (You may even choose to glue and set all components in place.) Drill the stepped pilot hole for the dowel.*Spread a small amount of glue on the ribbed sections of the dowel and insert it so that it drops approximately two-thirds its length. (It will self-center and align with the 2nd board even if you have not preglued or clamped the components.)Tap the dowel until fully inserted.Trim/sand any raised portion.*The depth drilled determines the depth of insertion. This not only allows users to countersink, tap flush, or leave raised, but also gives woodworkers the option to only use a portion of the dowel.If only 2 ½ sections of the drill bit is used, then only 2 ½ sections of the dowel will be inserted. This technique doubles the versatility of the product because it means that each size Miller Dowel is two sizes in one. It is an ideal feature when depth or thickness is restrictive, or for achieving a decorative effect.The Miller Dowel is perfect for use in a wide variety of wood joining and fastening applications, such as furniture, decks/docks, stairs and hand railings, cabinets, windows and doors, toys and more! Helps you avoid the problems associated with nails and screws, such as wood rot, metal corrosion and rust, nail pops, and splitting of the grain. Choose from 1x, 2x or NEW Mini-X Quick Drill kits, which include stepped drill bit and 50 Birch dowels. Dowels available in three sizes: 1x for boards up to 1" thick and 2x for boards up to 1-3/4" thick and NEW Mini-X for joining 1/2" stock. Drill bits fit 3/8" chuck. Additional packs of 25 dowels also available in birch, oak, cherry and walnut. Joining wood with wooden fasteners avoids the problems with nails and screws, such as Wood rot, of which even a minor amount compromises joint strength,1) Metal corrosion and rust2) Dangerous "Nail Pops" or "Shiners"3) Splitting of the grain.Peg Construction traditionally involves the difficult task of driving a pin dowel into a pilot hole that is just as tight at the top as it is at the bottom. Not only do you have to use a hammer from the very beginning, but it only gets tougher the deeper you get!The MILLER Dowel is inserted 75% by hand because of the relationship of the dowel shape to its pilot hole. You get better holding strength, and it is easier to tap in! Another advantage of having the dowel inserted so far through the top board is that the pilot hole does not have a chance to misalign. The hole for a traditional dowel must be perfectly matched up so the dowel can enter the second piece of wood without problems.The MILLER Dowel is already well into the second piece of wood before you even reach for your hammer! The MILLER Dowel has exceptional holding strength because the shoulder between the widest and second widest sections gets lodged in the top board. This produces a capping effect like the head on a screw or a nail.This dowel has excellent adhesion as glue remains all along the MILLER Dowel's length, settling under each shoulder, instead of being forced down to the bottom of the hole or sheared off at the top. Many woodworkers appreciate the decorative appearance of the pegged or "Shaker" look. Since our dowels can be stained prior to insertion, it simple to enhance the contrast for both light and dark woods. Why use plugs to cover countersunk screws? Using plugs involves drilling a pilot hole, screwing in a fastener, then gluing and inserting the plug. Why not just skip a step by using a MILLER Dowel? Plus, you won't worry about the plugs falling out and disappearing.Our fit remains tight. Unlike nails or screws, wooden dowels are naturally flexible and dampen vibration. There is no compression of the surrounding wood, which would loosen the fit.The original intent for our product was to be a safety fastener. Injuries and damages caused by exposed nail/screw heads are prevented by using MILLER Dowels.MILLER Dowels introduce a new joinery technique that can be used instead of difficult, expensive, and/or very time consuming methods like blind dowels, biscuits, pocket screws, or mortise and tenon.There is one timesaving assembly technique that is made possible by MILLER Dowels. A Chicago woodworker developed this as an alternative to the mortise and tenon joinery in his furniture design.In this method, pieces of wood to be joined are simply glued and aligned. Once cured, the glue eliminates the need for a brace.Pilot holes are then drilled, and the dowels can then be inserted for structural support.Not only does this method guarantee perfectly flush joinery, but it takes 25% of the time!
Slipstick Gripper furniture feet are specially formulated to keep your furniture firmly in place, yet make it easy to move it when the time comes to rearrange. The patented O-ring increases its grip as the weight increases so that when you sit down on your couch, for example, it won't suddenly slide backwards. When you want to move it, simple lift one end so the weight rests on the polymer glides around the perimeter of the Grippers. Of course, Slipstick Grippers also do a superb of protecting your floors from scratches. Rubber O-rings are specially formulated to protect floors and give some grip, which increases with the weight of the furnitureTilt-n-Slide feature lets you easily move your furniture by lifting one end so the angle is 20° or moreThree attachment options: peel-and-stick adhesive, one central screw, or three screw around the perimeter (adhesive option should not be used with Tilt-n-Slide, as detachment is possible)Recommended for legs from 2'' to 2-1/4'' in diameterProtects hardwood, laminate and ceramic tile floors (indentations may occur in cushion vinyl and soft wood)
