For you machinist types: Domino jig drilling plate
« on: August 13, 2014, 01:01 PM »
Basic concept: a flat plate with hardened inserts for drilling holes that match those on the Domino skid plate. Bonus points if the front edge lines up with the front edge of the actual tool when they're bolted together.

I've made a few different jigs recently, and today drilled holes into the MFT so I could use the fence and flag stop to mortise some chair legs. The basic idea is to line up fences on both sides with Qwas dogs, and lay out the Domino to be exactly in line with the fences. Basically turns the MFT into an oversized domi-plate, with jiggery. Laying out and drilling precise holes to the desired tolerance was a hassle and a half. If I had this setup plate, it'd be much easier next time, and on other future jigs.
