Swingman, a few weeks ago you were asking how well the Domino could
elongate a mortise. Your concern was whether the hole would be ragged.
My answer the hole would not be ragged.
Here is an 8mm wide mortise by approximately 2" long. I placed a center
plunge and followed left and right from center to get 2" wide.
This is through MDO with Fir inner plys, 3/4" thick.
This is the through cut on the bottom side. I used no backer to prevent
tear out on the exit side.
J.Clark, Just something else that I do with the Domino. This is a
counter sunk slot to accept a 5/16" bolt and washer. I need for the
bolt to slide in the slot. The bolt/bolts will attach this and another
75" long piece to the head and foot boards on the bed that I am
Pretty much impossible on a traditional mortiser as the piece is
approximately 18" x 75". This is at the end of the 75". A router jig
probably would have been a little quicker but I would have had to build
a jig. ;~)
