The Selekta 253 - WHAT'S NEW?

  • Smaller footprint than the 252
  • Has a new cleaning sytem with collection container.
  • Overlength dowel ejection is now automatic
  • The gun is lighter and the hose connecting the pistol and machine is more flexible making the pistol easy to maneuver.
  • The glue injection nozzle's re-design allows for closer placement to the hole opening for more accurate gluing especially for smaller diameter holes.
  • As an option a separate glue injection pistol (see below)which is connected to the machine's closed glue system can be used during the assembly process istead of glue bottles or a separate glue injection machine.


-Dowel Diameters 6, 8, 10, 12mm (different dowel diameter kit required for each size)
-Dowel length adjustable from 25-40mm
-Working capacity 45 dowels per minute.
-Electrical 110V, 1ph, 60hz
-Air pressure 85psi
-Weight 240 lbs
-Footprint 19-5/8"x19-5/8"x41"h

Optional glue injection gun uses the same glue and closed system as the dowel insertion pistol.

Control panel layout gives the operator full control from the front of the machine.
New Lighter pistol
  • Dowel feeding by maintenance-free hopper/vibrator.
  • Automatic ejection of over-length dowels(+/- 2mm) (Operator used to have to push the ejection button to eject overlength dowels)
  • Fully automatic maintenance-free electronic controller with program selection of:
          1: cleaning
          2: gluing
          3: gluing / inserting
  • Glue amount is electronically regulated in milliseconds. This is essential for different dowel sizes and diameters and various glue viscosity.
  • Completely closed glue system with conical seated front nozzle that eliminates both the hardening of the glue in the nozzle and the need for constant cleaning of the glue system.
  • A 6 bar high-pressure system for the glue injection guarantees precise glue stream and clean dowel inserting.
  • Glue/Water selector switch for occasional rinsing of the entire system.
  • Control light for indicating low volume of glue in the glue pot.
  • 1 stainless steel pot for 5 kg of glue (1.5 gallon).
  • 1 stainless steel pot for 5 liters of water (1.5 gallon).
  • Machine is mobile on casters.
  • Light and easily handled recoilless pistol weighing only 1.9 kg (4 lbs.).
  • Maintenance-free pistol mechanism using time-tested staple gun parts and technology.
  • Multi-function system of repeated gluing/inserting, gluing/inserting by constant depression of the pistol trigger.
  • The revolver magazine of the pistol guarantees a constant supply of dowels for the fastest possible operating cycle.
  • Dowels are inserted by a regulated outstanding length adjusted at the front of pistol.
