Try to clarify...........

>I'm not good with metric but 3/8" is .375, the tenons are machined at .366 to allow room for adhesive when inserted into the wood. The threaded are machined with that same small (actually the thickness of 2 strands of hair!) variance. The 11/32" drill bit is .345 and either tenon works with that size.

The 9mm proved only to confuse and will not be available after my remaining stock is gone. The 3/8" smooth and threaded will be made forever or until they stop making stainless steel, whichever comes first!
