Domino Knock-Down Connectors & Miters, Help!
« on: November 07, 2019, 11:13 AM »
I'm hoping to use our domino machine (500) and the quick-connect/knock-down domino connectors for a project using King Board - a plastic board that "no adhesive known to man" will stick to.  We're building 6-sided honeycomb structures that will be mitered along the long edges at a 60-degree angle.  I think I can run the domino slot straight-into the miter, parallel to the face of the board, allowing me to use the drilling jig for the knock-down dominos? Has anyone ever tried this?  Thanks

The best way to work out /verify the DJ settings etc. and to field test your design is to cut some test joints using scraps of the same thickness of your plastic material.

That's what I'm going to try this afternoon.  Just hoping to verify it works before purchasing the kit.  Thanks

yeah, no adhesive will work so you need to chemically weld them together / solvent weld

Your plan should work just fine. Make sure you don’t mortise so close to the edge that you cut through the outside edge.
