Double Male Connector In Use

Here's one use for the double male connector. The 1/2" dowel is quite snug on most pieces of our track and actually too small on a few pieces. I actually like the snug fit with such a small piece, it will hopefully help keep it from getting lost.

If the piece is two snug, one solution would be to find 1/2" dowel that was nominally a little smaller diameter. When I was at Home Depot, it seemed that their oak 1/2" dowels where quite a bit smaller than the stock I was using. Another solution would be to some careful sanding to reduce the diameter.
