Tent Peg – WWII U.S. Shelter Half, Reproduction


Nothing special or miraculous about these.  I crank them out on my lathe in my garage when the weather permits.  We make them out of crappy chunks of 2x4s and other scrap wood.  However they look pretty good and work pretty darn well.  Plus they are cheap.  Definitely better breaking one of these than an expensive reproduction or an original.   In the main photo, an original is to the right.  Prices per peg.  Normal full G.I. tents use 8 pegs.  Each soldier was issued one pole, one rope, 4 pegs, and one shelter half.  Combined with another G.I., you had a full tent for two.   You can see the video of me making a peg we posted to YouTube  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51kJ4A-Mu5Q

The first picture is of our reproduction pegs, the remaining pictures are of originals for reference.
