I turn small lace bobbins and I am wondering if anyone can help with a dowler idea how to reduce a 1/4 x 1/4 x 5.5 inch (10x10x130mm) square blank to a round 3/16 inch (5mm). It would save me a lot of time on the lathe with the gouge. Any ideas?

Drill a hole in a steel plate and drive your blank through with a mallet. Dowels have been made like this for a long time.
