This listing is for the Viking knit kit with complete 19 piece wire guide set, dowels in 3 different sizes (1/4", 3/8", 1/2" diameter), digital PDF instructions, and enough wire to make a chain for a bracelet. Wire guides only fit the dowels for which they were designed. We occasionally include extra items as we continue to improve our product. Draw plate is used to reduce soft or woven chain without marring or scratching the surface when pulled through the holes. Wire guides reduce the time for setting up to create a Viking knit chain, as well as help with setting up and keeping each stitch even. Perfect tools for pulling through a "Viking Knit" Draw plate dimensions are approximate and could vary a bit. ** This wooden kit is made to order. Contact us for information on rush orders before purchasing if this is needed. All sales are final.

Draw plate approximately is 8" long 3.60" overall width, Grip area 3" long 1.5" wide .5 inch thick There are 42 holes in this draw plate that range in size from .125 dia to .500 dia. We check each corresponding wire guide for a tight fit with the dowel. We try to ensure correct fit for each one, but sometimes wood expands and contracts depending on humidity. If a wire guide fits loosely on the dowel, a work-around is to place a piece of masking tape around the dowel to ensure a tight fit. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
