Taper Pins

Taper pins are small, solid steel tubes that resemble dowel pins but that are tapered – one end has a greater diameter than the other end.

They are manufactured to a very high tolerance to ensure that they are a precise fit. They are generally used for locking components in place in mechanical engineering applications, often in gearboxes and on camshafts.

Taper pins are tapped into position with a hammer or drift.
