They are 1/4” diameter. I usually allow a heavy 1/8” clearance on either side and compress them some on installation. So my panels are 1/4” to 5/16” narrower overall than the overall length of the rails (tenon to tenon). This seems to work well for me using the standard 3/8” tenons off my shaper cutters. I use eight balls per panel, regardless of the panel size. Two on each edge, located close to the joint.
