Where buy Dowel centers to fit over a 1/2" dowel to make 5/8" holes???

I need a dowel center that is big enough for a dowel at least 1/2" in diameter! The biggest one I have found stops at 3/8".. Im trying to mark a shelf with 8" dowel support locations... see attached picture of the dowels.

Will you use the Punky Hill brackets? These are screwed to the wall with a screw just above and below the metal rod/dowel. No need for a dowel center on those. The rod diameter is smaller than the hole in the shelf so it will slide on the the rods easily allowing for some miss alignment or rods /brackets and shelf holes. No doels are required for the Punky Hill shelf supports!

If you are not using the Punky Hill brackets, and wish to just drill for dowels into the studs then a different approach is required. See the advice I gave on your other thread for making a template. I would be tempted to use the P-H brackets if I were doing this ....

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
