Dowel Pins are straight solid headless shear fasteners with chamfered ends to aid with insertion and alignment.

They're useful for a variety of things, like aligning machine parts during assembly for reliable results and joining stone and concrete in masonry. A solid tubular rod made of plastic, wood, or metal is called a dowel pin. A dowel rod, which is longer, is sometimes cut into small pieces called dowel pins.
