If you can't afford a domino
« on: February 01, 2013, 08:39 AM »
Just saw this, not as flexible as the domino, but interesting never the less

I've seen it before. Yes, it'll be ideal for some people.

Going back and forth will decently dull those bits fast.

For the cost of the gadget it would be better to get a small, light duty, morticer. In the UK you can get one for £163 inc VAT.

If you went second hand you would pay a lot less and still get a solid machine (like the guy who bought mine which I sold after getting the Domino).

If the Domino did not drop from Festool Heaven then I would opt for a cheap and cheerful morticer.

I think the plywood domino is great. Would like to see it working. Not every one can just go out buying this that and the other

I had seen that, but the drilling part is cut out each time. All you see is the tool being pulled out.
Makes me think the action may not be as smooth or easy as the real thing.

Peter,

That would be a really neat-looking workshop!  I'm looking forward to seeing your plywood watch :)

Thanks Chris - it would be just like the radio that Dad let me build. I used a couple of offcuts of 4x2, a piece of 2x1 and four 2 inch nails - I was only just 5 at the time (and my woodwork has not improved much since then). It must have been the world's first digital radio as I can remeber hitting every one of my fingers with the hammer.

Peter the ply watch would be an improvement over the radio as the watch would be right twice a day..

The holes look pretty clean. Either way you’ve got to admire the ingenuity even if it’s a copy of Domino concept. Ergonomically pendulum cutter action is much easier than parallel lateral movement.

That's really impressive that you were swinging a hammer with both hands at such a young age.

Awesome! Imagine if that jig was made of aluminum (compact). Then with your trim router you could get functionality similar to Domino and not be stuck with proprietary cutters and preset depth/width.
(He has plans of the jig on his site).
