Long Timber Frame pegs
Timber Frame Pegs:
- Available in 14′, 16″, and 18″ lengths.
- Red Oak
- Straight (bevel one end to start in the hole)
Wood used in pegs is selected with as linear and clear a grain as possible. This reduces the likelihood of breakage, particularly with the timber frame pegs.
NOTES: Many auger bits actually cut +/- .030 oversize…in part so the balance of the shaft/flites aren’t overheating with the friction of rubbing on the sides of the hole and part due to many woods appear to ‘swell’ a bit upon drilling. In effect, making the hole close to call size. Thus, it’s best to have a couple of brands of drill bits available.
