Curious. Why would one need that jig ?I agree they are very handy, once you have one you just find uses for it. There is a number of excellent add ons to make it even better and easier. I was looking at this thing. Domino Alignment Jig System (DAJ) Deluxe | FC Tools its a bit expensive but looks great.
One pass. Bosh and straight in without issue. Even with an old cutter and on the “wide” setting. The thing is a beast!Louis out of interest did you do the full depth in the first pass or did you do it in multiple passes like you would a normal router?
EDIt: scrub that, you obviously had to do multiple plunges along the length of the mortice, not slide the domino along the mortice.
To save you drawing a few pencil lines?Curious. Why would one need that jig ?
This to me is quite simple. The small one is the best bet for cabinetry. The large one is better for full size doors and quite large framing joints. However, if you are only doing a couple of doors the large one is not justified as you may as well save the cash and make M&Ts by hand.This leads to the age old question DF 500 or the 700 XL haha? @LBCarpentry what are your thoughts. I’m waiting for the DF500 just because it’s not a monster. Having said that you’ve got me thinking again as I always like to pay extra to future proof myself. I usually don’t go beyond 18mm boards but the Mrs is now I’m about a front door canopy.
Thoughts? And sorry to open that old chestnut again haha
If your doing cabinetry then 500. Without a doubt. I use my 500 a lot more than the bigger.This leads to the age old question DF 500 or the 700 XL haha?
It's one of the few tools you can get most of your money back on if you sell it on, and all I hear is that you find new uses for it when you on one and that it's very fast for lots of jobs. When the time you get in a workshop is limited I get why people want one, especially as you can get most of that money back if you want to.Of course they have limitations but doesn’t everything? I think the idea of a hobbyist purchasing a domino is a bit ridiculous.
