Domino mounted to LR32 plate
« on: January 18, 2012, 11:19 AM »
Kevin D.  brought this up in another thread. Here is a link  to a PDF 'How To' on mounting the Domino to the LR32 router plate for use on the guide rails.

Click the "How To" tab at the top, then scroll down to "Mounting the Festool Domino machine on the 32mm shelf hole jig
" , click that for the PDF.   The first heading "Festool Domino Machine" is not the LR32 how to.

Mount Domino to LR32 plate

This is from Jerry Works , Dovetail Joint  website.

Thanks for the link Seth, but like Alan pointed out, it is for the pin type model.  But even if it was a pin model I had, I wanted a solution that the Domino face was in contact with the surface rather than riding on the sled itself.  I tinkered with this for a while, and originally I thought it would be easy to come up with something, but it wasn't so, especially when I got to thinking of all sorts of versatility in use I wanted to integrate into it.   Good brain teaser which one day I hope to revisit solving.  So far, Rembo possibly has the best solution yet, but I think we're still doing a little head scratching on it until we see it in action.

I see Ron's been busy after all....

Is that a final version Ron? 

Gonna put a video together by chance to better demonstrate its merits?

Are you planning on selling them as you did your Domiplate?

No, it still needs some engineering refinement.  Once I get it to a version that I think will be useful to people I'll probably send one to my favorite "videomakingverycleverwoodworkerallaroundniceguy" Paul Marcel for his analysis and suggestions for improvements.
Yes, I'll be happy to sell them.

The design is so brilliantly simple, yet I can see how efficient and versatile it will be.  I think with parrallel guides on the rails, it would lend itself even better for aligning it where I would want to plough mortices in series on an open board surface.  You're the man!  I'm looking forward to its availability.

I just received my Domiplate a few days ago and was surprised to unwrap a black anodized plate rather than the silver version.  I guess I was one of the last orders placed by following the thread and using Paypal.

When I saw that my Domiplate was black, I went to my computer looking for an answer.  I found senecawoodworking.com and immediately wondered what other product(s) might wind up there in the “Products Catalog”

I hope this is it.  If so, please let me know.  I’m ready when you are.

I’ve been looking at the Mafell DD 40 P Duodübler / Duo-Dowel because Mafell offers a track / rail solution for their system.

at about 1:20 in the video

I found the Mafell system while searching the web for ways to mate my Domino to my rails.

It was interesting to find that a major manufacturer found value in a joiner / track system.  Prior to finding the Mafell solution, I had received responses that ranged from incredulous to darn near hostile when inquiring among Festool enthusiasts about such a union.  It simply wasn’t necessary and bordered on “silly.”

Don’t get me wrong, I love my Festool stuff.  I often have a difficult time convincing non-tool people that my Festools warrant such exuberance.  And I too can be a devout and allegiant consumer when a manufacturer goes beyond simply meeting my needs, but questioning convention isn’t actually a sin.

The official Festool (USA) response was something akin to “Son, did you actually take time to learn to use the tool?”

Ron, the Domiplate (IMO) is elegant simplicity.  The fit and finish (someone else already mentioned this here) imediatley made me think of Woodpecker / Pinnacle.

As well as the Domiplate, I’ve purchased Rick Christopherson’s SCG-10.  These two accessories along with a method for connecting the Domino to a rail / track are three issues that I’ve long felt should have been either addressed or better addressed by Festool.  And I feel that all three of these solutions greatly expand and already highly usefull tool.

Whether you’re able to, or choose to deliver this product, THANKS for the Domiplate.

Yeah, but you're bringing a product to market, gaining experiance and making millions, so is that the kind of trouble we refer to when we look at a beautiful woman and say "She's trouble?"


It's scary what enthusiasm can do to my vision.  I didn’t even notice the Domino’s position relative to the track changing in each photo.

The Mafell doesn’t do that!  Now I’m even more anxious.  Like the kid in the back seat “Is it done yet?”  “Is it done yet?”

I love convenience, and this seems like a big one!

Hmm figure that, this isn't the first time I've heard of such kind of behaviour from Festool. Just the other day I was reading a rather disturbing post from a Dutch dealer over at woodworking.nl who's had a few run-ins and weird reactions from Festool as well when he suggested improvements to their tools. I kind of find it hard to believe, since they have excellent customer care, but according to him Festool doesn't seem very open to suggestions for improvement  ???
Anyway...
Both the Festool Domino and Mafell DuoDoweler are ingenious pieces of kit and frankly I'm torn between which one to get, both have their pros and cons. Don't you just hate luxury problems :p

That looks pretty cool. But as a "traditional" type woodworker, I've always shied away from dowel joints based on the common wisdom that dowels don't make for a good long time joint. They move too much and loose their hold (or maybe the wood around them does, can't remember). Think chairs with round tenons.

Maybe it's different when we're talking sheet goods?

Number one son Ryan is on a bicycle approximately half way between Washington, D.C. and Pittsburgh (camping along the way).  When he gets back later this week I'll pass a nudge on to him for this project.  My work is 99% done, it's now up to him to market them (as well as several other projects in the hopper -- NUDGE, NUDGE).  [unsure]

Hi Ron,

I'd like to nudge you again on your mounting plate.  I was looking at Jerry Works' solution and it looks like his way the front bolt interferes with the angle lock down lever on the domino, making it less secure than I'd like.  If others have tried it, I'd be interested in their experience.

Any date yet for your release?

Thanks,

Dick

Wouldn't it be easier to just mount the domino over the existing LR 32 hole? All you'd need is a few threaded holes machined into the domino fence.

Or make a part that slips over like the cross stop, and that attaches to the plate....

Did you take this any further, or has this been abandoned? I take it you didn't get a lot of interest, or was there something that didn't work?

Since it's close to Halloween, I figured it was OK to raise this thread from the dead and since this all took place before I was a member, why did this not happen?

I have the newer DF500 with the tabs not the pins, and I don't believe Jerry Works' solution to mount the DF500 on the LR32 guide plate will work for me (no pun intended).

Went to Seneca's website but couldn't find anything about this.

To risk asking a stupid question....Why do you want to mount the Domino to the LR32 rail?

To take advantage of the 32mm spacing of the LR32 system and use the rail to guide domino placement far in from the edge and end of a board.

Could be done by clamping a straight edge offset the proper distance but then you still have the spacing issue.

Using the LR32 end stops you can reference off an edge just as when using the LR32 system to drill shelf pins holes or locate hinges but in this case you're locating domino mortises.

I use a trick to get exactly spaced mortises over a broad span.

The first mortise is cut using the pop out block on the Domino.

I cut a block of wood the length of the spacing I want plus about 3”.  I insert a Domino tenon in the spacer block the same size as the ones I will be using for the joints.

I insert the block’s tenon into the first mortise I cut. The Domino is butted against the side of the spacer block and the next mortise is drilled.

The spacer block is moved to the mortise I just cut. I repeat this until all the mortises are cut.

I then repeat all this for the other piece of wood.

I’ve done spans of 45” using the narrow setting on the Domino and get tap together joints.

Why not think outside the box? Expand the capabilities of the L-32 rails.

 Have these tool manufacturing geniuses come up with a new trip-lever sled that accepts the Domino both vertically and horizontally.  Imagine the precisely spaced glue up edges. The existing L-32 sled works fine but I would not mind a beefier model with some rethinking of dust collection.

The concept would be a new trip-lever sled with attachments to advantage 32mm spacing for a variety of tasks

You're asking a lot I think Clark.

We can't even get them to drill a couple holes in the existing sled to accept the DF500.
People have been asking for that for over 6 years. I found posts here dating back to
2012 on the subject.

Maybe it's beyond their capabilities, nah, they could do it, if they wanted to.

I understand it's to drill domino holes I'm asking whats the need to cut domino mortises in the middle of a cabinet side/top/bottom?  I've built at least 100 cabinets but for the life of me, can't see the need.

In case you build cabinet above a certain height it's a good idea to give it some stabiltiy (apart from the nailed-on back) by adding a fixed shelve in the middle. Same for a wider (built-in) horizontal cabinet, it can make sense to have only one top or bottom for the whole row. Quick mockup attached.
