Seeking suggestion for Festool Domino Dilemma
« on: June 22, 2007, 07:24 PM »
I want to cut a series of three mortises with the Domino. I'd prefer to use the pins to establish the proper spacing rather than marking with a pencil. Here is my problem. The spacing I need lies between the integral Domino pins and those of the cross stop (even in its closest position). Anyone have a solution to this?

I know of the rare earth magnet trick, but I guess I just don't quite get it. It makes sense if one is registering a mortise from the end (or side) of a board. However, I want to make 3 successive equidistant mortises. Once the first mortise is cut, the magnets would have to be of small enough diameter (<5 mm) to fit in the initial mortise for the next cut.  What am I missing?

Use the index pin on the Domino for the first hole, now use a spacer with the cross stop for second, no spacer with the cross stop for the third.
