      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

Brass Screw Eyes - Small : I need a eye screw to mount into the side of a 3/8" cedar dowel. I am thinking the second one from the bottom would work and not go all the way through the shaft?

It depends on how much weight or stress will be put upon the screw-eye. If only a light amount of stress will be applied it will probably work. I would recommend pre-drilling a "start hole" for inserting the screw eye, with a tiny drill bit (slightly smaller than the size of the shank of the screw eye.)When I used these screw eyes I was hanging a small(1 1/2")wooden acorn from a ribbon. the screw eye was inserted into the top of the acorn.
