Domino tips and tricks
« on: December 02, 2016, 07:49 PM »
The domino is such a unique tool, I feel it warrants a  topic dedicated to unusual ways of using this unique tool, I would like to start with a slip on slip off wood vent cover.
Lets see what you guys got, cheers.

Did you use Domino to make the angled slots in the vent too ?

Yes,  I cut the slot in the vent cover  by moving the domino along  with the loose setting

No, the vent cover was purchased by the home owner, however it might be worth a shot , he did pay $80.00 CND  for it .

I don't have a picture, but my first use of my domino cutter was for making adjustable slotted mounting positions in the cabinet holding the range hood. When it (finally) came time to do the wall tile behind the stove I loosened the nuts holding the range hood and slid it away from the wall leaving enough room to tuck in the top course of tile. After grouting was done I pushed the hood back tight to the tile and tightened the nuts for a snug fit. The domino cutter made it really easy to make those slots.

After seeing that vent, I'm considering making some drawer glides out of Dominos for the shop.
