Any issues using Domino on IKEA coated trim panels?
« on: January 30, 2017, 09:39 AM »
I was going to use some small dominos on IKEA trim panels to fill somegaps between upper cabinets.

My question is will the plastic or vinyl coating on the trim panels gum up or burn onto the cutter?

Any ways to manage the friction-adhesion effect or should the vaccuum keep the coating cool enough to cut before it melts?

I've used the Domino on Ikea panels. Had no concerns or issues using it.

I've also used dominos to attached filler pieces to IKEA cabinets.  You just have to make sure to avoid hitting any installed hardware as that will be the end of your bit on the domino!

I don't know enough about the makeup of the IKEA coating, but you should be fine. From the comments, it sounds like other users have had success with it.

Ive not used the Domino on any Ikea stuff but Ive sliced up plenty with the TS55 to no unusual effects.

Just be carefull with planning as lots of the panels are not solid and noticeably lighter than they should be.  Ive managed to avoid having to cut any that Ive found.
