Draw pins or taper pins
« on: September 19, 2005, 12:29:05 PM »
Was looking at pins for my project on Northcotts web site , they supply draw pins with a long sharp taper at one end and taper pins that just have a short "starting shoulder. The body taper is described as the same, minus 1/64" to plus 1/64". What are your preferences for draw pinning? Is the longer sharper taper realy neccessary? Thnx bman

It comes down to your draw bore technique, amount of draw and asthetics.
If you fit and prick to locate your peg hole you can use either.  The short taper will mean a peg that fills the hole completely at the far side, you'll want to keep the draw to a minimum for these.
If you bore at layout it's best to order the long tapers as they'll compensate better for any drift in drilling, they do tend to leave a small gap showing around the peg at the far side.
