of you are there / close to there, so perhaps you can help.
Lee Valley have apparently stopped selling a particular type of
wooden dowel measuring 3/8" x 1 1/2" with a spiral cut in to
them. Ones available from other shops (Home Depot?) are
apparently of a noticably lower quality, and he is reluctant to
So can anyone recommend a shop which sells high quality dowels?
Many thanks in advance,

Lee Valley sells very nice 8mm fluted (not spiral) dowel pins. Otherwise,
Lee Valley still sells accurate long hardwood dowels that can easily be
converted into suitable pins by running a block plane down one side to make
a glue-release space and then cut to length. I've always gotten along fine
with this method for decades.
