      Of course..  one way to point dowels on a lathe is to buy a fairly expensive 'pattern follower'...  or copy set.  You could make consistant round tenons that way...  expensive... by consistant...  then again... ya' could learn to turn REALLY WELL...

      Thanks for the tip.  I've seen rounder planes, but all were hand
      cranked.

      Here in Ohio, we call that a dowel.  ;)
