Anyone here make wood plugs


Recommended Posts

I had a guy camping next to me in Ludington last year who swore by the 4" length Tomic plugs for harbor patrol. I have looked and only found them for sale online and those who have them are PROUD of them. They want like $10 per plug or more so that got me to thinking I could make some myself out of some wood dowels from lowes. I'm thinking of riggin up a jig using a deep well socket and an adapter to turn my drill press into a mini lathe. I figure it will be a good winter project. I figure with minimal outlay funds maybe 40 bucks max i can make up 20 plugs or so. I'm shooting for a blatant copy of the tomics. Anyone else here ever tried this?

Looking at their shape it certainly looks like it could be done. I do know a little curve here or there could make a huge difference in how the plug runs but I think it would be worth a shot. In fact, kind of wish you lived closer cause I'd like to see it and maybe help.
