Hi guys, been a while since I dropped in. I recently built a Lutyens bench and needed to create mortises with the domino at 84 degrees instead of the standard 90 degrees. This video shows how I used the TSO Products DBF-45 to achieve my goal.

I saw the video this morning, before coming here. The thing I got from it was that someone should make a similar product that is tilt adjustable. Even if it was only a few degrees, maybe 10 or 15?
The extended cut depth capability of the DF700 makes large wedges possible, but something similar on a DF500 would have limitations.

Yeah. That'd make such an accessory more versatile.

@Crazyraceguy - we hear you and note your interest. The DF 700 community is not very vocal - at least not within our earshot. We would like to hear more while we are always working on refinements and expansion of our existing product lines.

What exactly would you you build using that capability?

Just saw an update to @mattbyington 's Walnut Bed Thread and noticed that he used a Shaper Origin to cut mortises in the headboard/footboard as well as angled tenons in the slats (see #23 in the thread).

To do this with a Domino XL instead you'd need to cut angled mortises in the ends of the slats and glue in dominoes. Matt creates the angled tenons using his Shaper Origin Workstation, and then 90 degree regular mortises in the headboard/footboard rails.

Additionally, in many chair designs arm rests join back supports at non-90 degree angles, and here again the ability to cut angled mortises would be useful. As the OP projects shows, the additional depth afforded by the XL makes it the better choice over the 500 for most such applications.

So, a Big Foot where one could dial in an angle instead of being fixed at 90º would be useful. I'd buy one. Note that the angle should probably be limited to something under 45º - maybe even under 30º or 35º. I'd have to work out the geometry. The other aspect is to figure out protection from the spinning bit, but perhaps side walls could serve dual purpose as angle adjustment locking plates and bit protection.
