Using domino on obtuse angles
« on: March 13, 2019, 10:52 PM »
I want to join to pieces of 1 1/4" x 3 1/4" lumber that are cut at 50 degrees using my domino joiner. Do I set the angle of the joiner at 40 degrees or 50 degrees to join the two pieces?

Depends on the orientation of the domino.
Keep in mind that the axis of it should always be perpendicular to the surface it's inserted into.

A picture might help give you more information.
