What is best method to stabilize domino in middle of board
« on: January 21, 2013, 08:10 PM »
Hello, I have just got my domino and put it right into production.  I notice it wants to kick when in the middle of a board without an edge to grab, I had the base support bracket on.  The material is prefinish maple,which tends to be a slippery surface. I was using domino to join the deck to a partition of an upper cabinet.  I'm sure this question has been asked, and someone could direct me to the post.  Thanks :)

First I would suggest that you slow down your plunge rate.  The Domino IMO has a learning curve.  I am assuming that you are placing the Domino against something.  If you continue to have issues and the Domino is constantly kicking one way you could of course make some sort og stop block.

Are you trying to do a field domino with no stationary support for the base?

I guess I could have finished my thought either way. I'm sure there are numerous ways that people do what I call field dominos. When I use my domino to build cabinet boxes and the dominos aren't on the end of a board I generally use my mft table and the flip down guide rail in conjunction with the flag stop for support for the base of the domino. I index off the bottom of the domino, which takes some getting use to for the proper alignment, I generally using 3/4" material so I'm use to it.
I've also used just the guide rail with different clamps in the same manor, the parallel edge guides with guide rails work well also.
The mft flip down guide rail and flag stop is probably the easiest for consistent repeated field dominos though

As was said use the rail. If you pinch with one hand and plunge with the other it works well.

Don't forget to set the depth of plunge to 12 or 15mm. Remember it is 10mm from the base to the center of the bit. Use the 20 height setting when mortising your shelf, set set of plunge as needed.

Take the support bracket off, that works best to help stabilize at the end of a board.  As has been shown with the guide rail, pretty much any good straight edge firmly clamped in place will do. If you slide the fence all the way to the top, you will be able to get a better hold on the handle to press down and against the fence very solidly.

I like to clamp a solid square across the piece and use the measurements to consistently locate the Dominos from piece to piece. I thought I has a pic or a post of it but can't find it now.

The distance from the base of the Domino (the part against the straight edge ) to the center of the mortise is 10mm. Which is oretty close to 3/8" which will pretty nearly center it for 3/4" material. All in all a very handy method.

I needed to do something like that with some 3/4 ply when making a double-wide sysport.  I drew a line down the middle of the base (actually 10mm to the side).  I then laid the middle upright on its side and clamped it to the base along that line.  Then I marked the domino positions and was able to do both the base and middle upright in one go, dominoing down into the base, and sideways into the upright.  One direction was done tight, the other direction loose.

At least I like to think I did it that way.  In reality, I think I assumed laying the domino flat on the base was going to magically bore into the center of the upright, and there was some confusion about how far from the actually center to clamp the upright.  I'm just glad I hadn't cut the shelves first.

+1!  Listen to the motor as you plunge.  If there's a dramatically noticeable change in motor speed as you plunge, you're plunging too fast, and THAT can cause the Domino tool to slip right or left.  The advice from others to use the guide rail is right on target.

Thanks again everyone, I like the idea of using the bottom of the domino to reference from, will be more consistent.  At least with 3/4 sheet goods.

Here is a little jig I came up with. It's a piece of plywood with the edge routed to fit the edge of the guide-rail. Two holes with M5 screws, nuts and washers used as a grip when tightening it to the domino.

FV,

You’re definitely thinking out of the box with this solution.  You came up with a great strategy to use the rail.  You’d definitely would have to use a router/router table to make the rabbit for the track.  Most table saw Dado blades don’t cut rabbits as smooth as a router bit will.

Trying to figure out what you are doing - are you trying to fix (say) a horizontal board to a vertical board or something similar?  Like fitting a shelf between 2 vertical cabinet sides?

It took me while to get to grips with this method of joining boards at 90 degrees in the middle of another piece, but I just built a small shelf unit this way and I'm pleased to say all the slots ended up in the right place and it all went together square!

A jig or clamped straight edge, or guide rail will all eliminate any chance of drift. In those sort of applications, thinking of the Domino as a router will aid any solutions needed.

@thedevme Plunge the DF 500 S-L-O-W-L-Y!!!  Listen to the motor pitch.  If it changes radically and the DF 500 is shifting position while you're plunging, you're plunging too rapidly.   [smile]

Thanks - I actually just came back in before I read this and tried it plunging slowly does help but maybe because I am new to it - it takes me forever to line it up.  I feel more comfortable with everyones tips now I just have to do it.  Thank you.

You can also brace the side of the fence that wants to scoot away from your clamped straightedge with your thumb and index finger.  It's just a router.  The bit turns in one direction, the body will be forced in the other direction so you can apply a little force to counter that twisting motion.  This can be a problem with smoother surfaces where there isn't enough friction to keep the domino in place.  But most of the time, if you're not plunging too fast it's not an issue.

Thanks, @RKA - For when I do longboards and I need a bunch of them I decided to get/use a straight edge clamp that I found.  This will give me consistent plunges along the same line without needing the opposite board.  This coupled with the story stick I think I should be able to not have to take it apart every time to check.

I have a 26" square as well.  [wink]

If wider I usually use a guide rail with the domino against the back edge.   I haven't done that in a while but I think the TSO rail square might work.

When you use these clamps on softer hardwoods, like cherry, you'll find that they leave compression tracks in your workpiece, so put a small piece of 1/4" or 1/2" plywood under the clamp feet before you lock them down.

Not sure about the current production of the Pro-Grip clamps but on the original version the cam-like lever had two steps so it had two levels of force, enough and more. Unfortunately the clamp pad was a little loose on the tension rod so even though the clamp was tightened the straight edge could move a little bit laterally.

A straight board held down by plain old clamps is sufficient to solve the problem of guiding the Domino. Add increments to make the board into a story stick and practice holding the machine in place.

Just a heads-up, those clamps can slip. At least the older ones can. Mine are probably 15-20 years old. Actually, that's the reason I purchased a TS 55 and guide rail was because of the slipping. Before the Festool purchase I cut sheet goods with those clamps and a Milwaukee circ saw.

I've done this in the past for a long row of dominos placed in the field of a board.

An FS rail, 3 quick clamps and a 1010 guide stop.



Place the rail in position and clamp, then center the DF 500 on the mark, move the guide stop over and clamp. It's a fast, easy and secure method to prevent the DF 500 from moving as you're holding the tool against the rail and the guide stop.

To increase the grip when working with a small surface (where a rail or straightedge is hard to work with), I have tried two methods:

1) Adhere sandpaper to the fence
2) Spray an anti-slip coating (for stairs, steps, etc.) onto the fence (mask the window before you spray) (https://www.homedepot.ca/product/epoxyshield-epoxyshield-anti-slip-clear-340g/1000785172).

Method 1 would throw you off on the fence depth setting by the thickness of the sandpaper. You can apply the sandpaper when you need to use the intersecting-line technique, and remove it afterwards.

Method 2 is my preferred method as the coating (2 - 3 light coats worked well for me) does not seem to affect any setting. The extra purchase works for regular operation as well, not just for the intersecting-line operation. If you want to remove the coating for any reason, use mineral spirits. Try this on a metal surface if you aren't sure, and follow the instructions on the can.

Since it's made for stairs and such, I assume the coating does not rub off easily and you don't need to reapply it?

The coating has been on the fence for over 4 months now, and the grip is still there. I have not recoated it since.

It is for internal and external use, and the can says it is good on wood, metal and concrete.

Bonus: Use it on clamp handles, and you can't be happier.

Just make sure you follow the instructions on spraying and drying time (kinda picky like the instructions for spraying polyurethane).

The TS anti-kickback stops also work nicely to turn a FS rail into a story stick for the domino.

That looks like great stuff, but doesn't appear to be available in the United States.  Must be some kind of regulations.

Usually it is the other way round that Home Depot Canada does not carry something that its US counterpart does. For example, in Canada, we don't have the dustopper, or this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Stanley-4-1-4-in-Pocket-Knife-with-Rotating-Blade-10-049/203771308

I suppose Home Depot US also offers the anti-slip spray in a single can, not just in a pack of 6.

By the way, I have not tried it yet, but I plan to spray a light coat of it on my Kapex table to increase grip.

The U.S. version says it's oil based, cleans up with mineral spirits, but says nothing about epoxy.  The Canadian version I'm assuming is epoxy resin.  Rustoleum U.S. makes other epoxy resin products for spraying your garage floor and these say "Epoxyshield."

Interesting observation. The Canadian version also uses mineral spirits for clean up.

When would anyone need to do any of this to put mortises in the middle of a board? Only time I've done it is for partitions and for that I just clamp the partition to the layout line and I'm good to go. What am I missing?

Here is one example of the use of the intersecting lines technique. I relied on the extra grip (from the anti slip) for precision cuts.
