Hello,

I found this in my domino systainer - looked and looked at the domino and accessories to see if I could identify where it might have came from or broken off, but I have not been able to identify it. Any ideas? Pictured on a 6x40 for scale.

Thank you.

Not in from of mine but looks like the piece that goes in the end of the fence slide?

Not sure either but might be a cap on a corner piece of a fence

It's the cap/plug that goes on the top if the slide. They come off easily. I think it's a game – if you still have both of them after wearing out one of your Domino cutters you get a free box of Domino tenons in that size (broken cutters don't count). But I can't remember where I read that...

Though not what they're designed for, the plastic caps are useful when mounting and using the machine in an upside-down fashion.

Mike is correct. And, they are made from disapperium. They are made so they fall off the machine when no one is watching and become invisible.

Got a picture of this? I can’t picture it.

I came across two videos in which the machine was used upside down. Here's one that I could still find:

Yeah, cap to the slide. One of them came off of the first DF500 I had. It took a few months though. A little drop of CA glue fixed it right up. The other side stayed on fine for years before being destroyed in a fire. Neither of the ones has come off of my new one. I got it in Sept of 18 and it has gone through more than 3000 6mm Dominos. Apparently they have figured it out.
