    You might check your local Woodcraft Store, or get them online.

      Birch dowels are the most common available ones. Amazon sells birch. I have purchased maple dowels and other items from Casey's Wood Products. They have great service.

      Woodcraft also sells dowels of various species.

      So what are you making?.

          Our Walmart sells birch dowel rods, as does Michaels, Lowes and HD. To get walnut, you will probably need to order on-line. A quick Google shows that Rockler, Woodcraft and Klingspor carry them, along with other species.

            If I need something beside ***** or oak, I go to Woodcraft. I don't order them - when I get by a Wood craft store (about once every 3 months or so), I just pick up a few.

            I, also have plug and tenon cutters. If I just need some short ( 1 - 3 inches), I just cut them out of what ever wood I want to use.

                I was using my older Colewood Super pro II yesterday and I could not control the temperature. As soon as I turned it on the tip went to the max. I opened it up to have a look.

                It seems that new members don't present themselves in the new members section. If anyone spots a new member encourage them to introduce themselves in the new member section.

                I will send Kaylee a note to see who is overseeing the forum.

                As you know, we lost a ton of folks during the time the board was being redone and a lot of them ended up at the Village and have never looked back.
                As far as updates to the software, I am with Scott on having no clue. I do wish some of the old timers would check in from time to time, even...
