Another use for Domino XL 700
« on: November 16, 2011, 04:49 PM »
It just occurred to me that there might be another use (other than big joint/door building) for the Domino XL 700 (for those of you building
a justification list!).

You can use the XL 700 to cut mortises for draw tusk joints.

Just afix some sort of angled wood block on the front of the fence or to the actual stretcher (double back carpet tape should work as I don't think there
are threaded mounting points on the fence). The point is to get the domino plunging at a slight
angle (5 degrees?) relative to the face of the stretcher. Then you'd use a deep plunge to cut a through mortise on the tennon of the stretcher.

Alternatively, maybe someone could make a version of the Domiplate that bolts onto the underside and provides and angled shim with appropriate
slot cutout for the bit to clear through.

You could then shape your own draw tusk to fit the domino mortise. The key is to position the mortise so that one side of it is buried inside the
mortise of the leg.

Here's a quick pic:
