When pouring my concrete driveway, where do I get my smooth steel dowels for expansion joints?
Im pouring my own concrete driveway, which will be twenty two x forty feet. I want to make a couple expansion joints in the concrete using smooth steel dowels. They say that 1 half of the lenght of a twenty four inch dowel should be installed in the cement and should be fixed in place, and the other end should be greased when the brand new section is poured. That smooth dowel is very expensive I hear. What would you do?
