Lr-32 and domino
« on: October 20, 2019, 12:21 AM »
Is there a way to incorporate a domino with the Lr-32 system?

 Slotted holes in a straight line and at a set spacing is what I’m asking.
Has it been done ?
Thanks in advance ,Charlie

Yes I have done that. I used the LR32 to make a set of jigs that give me dominos spaced at 32 mm in the edge, side or middle of variable thickness sheets without any measuring or marking.

Will try to post a set of pics later (maybe tomorrow).

I look forward to the pics.
Is there a way to attach a domino to the router sled of the LR-32 ?

Looked at that and decided that it was far too difficult to use compared with what I came up with.

(Because there is no easy way to register to a specific edge when used with a holey rail.)

Look at the linear guide that Mafell makes for their dowel drilling machines. I bought one for my DDF40 and it facilitates placing dowels evenly across a long distance.

There may be a way to adapt the Mafell guide for the Domino.

That’s exactly what I needed, I saw a guy on Instagram that had added 8mm slots on his Paulk type table to use the Kreg hold down clamps.
Making the entire top a clamp surface . Using  Festool lever clamps or Kreg clamps . Seems real useful .
@chicagocarpenter was the post
Thanks again,
Charlie

I finally moved outside to get some pics on my phone, spent a long time writing a description of my jigs and when I pressed "post" it all disappeared.

So here goes another attempt, but this time I will post it in bits, try to add more and if it don't work, multiple posts.

The first pic is the main jig with the domino mounted EXACTLY in the middle of two of the 8 mm holes which were drilled using the LR32 holey rail.

305700-0

This shows the panel in place to drill the first domino hole into the face of the panel.

305702-1

Finished result after the stop is moved to the next position.

This upload is giving me heck.

The panel in position to drill the first edge hole. This is done on the other end of the jig and is the reason why the domino has to be exactly in the middle.

305718-0

Panel moved to the next hole position.

305720-1

Finished result.

The system has scrambled the order for the pics again. The first one should be last and the rest moved up one position.

That last post took 4 attempts. It appears that it takes too long to upload if I have more than 2 pics, so it replaces #3 with one of the first two.

The stop is an 8 mm Allen bolt with the thread cut off.

305727-0

The second jig is the one that puts the holes in the centre of a panel. It has a row of 8 mm holes and a row of 20 mm drilled with the holey rail. The 20 mm holes are to enable Festool clamps to be used to fix it in position on a panel.

The adjustable stop screw is used to set the position of the holes to match the other jig.

305729-1

Top view showing the groove for the clamps. The jig is postioned at the reference edge location and the holes are 10 mm away.

305731-2

Domino in position to drill the holes.

305733-3 [ Specified attachment is not available ]

As long as the 8 mm holes were drilled with the holey rail the only critical dimension is positioning the domino EXACTLY in the centre of the 8 mm holes and the screw adustment is used to ensure that both jigs deliver identical results.

It is interesting and looks well made but I don’t quite understand how it works.

Is this a jig for repositioning the machine in fixed increments (likes the LR32 and the Mafell jig) or is this for repositioning small work pieces?

It is a pair of jigs for positioning the machine in increments of 32 mm on the edges or middle of any sized panel. You can make it as long as you need.
