Margelis Dowel-Making Machine
GRHC - 2007
The overhead view of the dowel press shows a bin at the top that would normally hold plain dowels. To the right is the handle that turns a wheel, situated under the flat metal piece in front of the bin, which presses a ridged pattern into the dowels. Adjustments can be made with the large screw at the front of the machine, and a small lever at its left. The feet have holes so it can be attached to a workbench.
