Longer DOMINO Connector Double Bolts Required ?
« on: August 08, 2017, 07:48 AM »
Current connector bolts are designed to join thick bench tops with the centre of each connector set back 40mm from the join.

I've currently got a shelving project where the knock down nature of Domino connectors is ideal.

So I'd like to use the connector bolt so that a rail on each side of a post could be joined together by running the bolt right through the post and anchoring it into the rail on each side. 

The post is 35mm thick so that means that with 80mm between centres of the anchors mortises,  the edges of the mortises will be a mere 15.5mm (<5/8") from the end of the rail.

In my view this is likely to result in the mortise pulling through.  A longer bolt would be the answer.

Looks like a job in the workshop this weekend to see what I can come up with !
