DIY Doweller
« on: February 27, 2017, 07:47 AM »
Hello guys!

I'd like to share my homemade single Doweller. It is smaller and I think more flexible compare to duo model. It is not ready jig - just concept. Heart of this jig is universal block with drill guide which can be used for many different ways. I hope I will be able to continue develope it and improve.

The spring action registration pin is a particularly brilliant piece of engineering.

I like bearings idea. This is what UJK Parf Guide needs to avoid binding problems.

That's really impressive. I use dowels for quite a lot of smaller jobs - not having a Domino.
Like Edward, I think the Domino-esque registration pins are clever.

Also, I'd begun to think I was the only person with a DR18/4, so infrequently (i.e. never) does it get mentioned!

Very cool how you made this. What's the use of all the extra threaded buses?

They are universal purposed holes. For example for vacuum cleaner socket from bottom side or something else. It is modular tool. This way I foreseen   place for next improvements.

It is not new idea (mafell dd40) just made from common hardware.

There is big difference in work when you feel softness of such rotation except steel to steel scratching. It is not first my jig with bearings. They always worked excellent

How do you re-register the work after flipping sides on the CNC ?
helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple

Maybe hard stops on a fixture or an edge finder?  [tongue]

Watch and learn, Woodpeckers. Watch and learn...
Mirock, you should sell these. Perhaps team up with some manufacturing facility.
Woodpeckers.com sells dowel jigs for hundreds of $$. Yours is way better.

Awesome work Mirock!

Very inspirational to see how you're able to combine the best features of different tools, and make your own jig!

Should you consider to go commercial with this, please do!  [big grin]

Firstly I cut place and put it there, after making first side I flip it and put it on the same place and repeat processing

Great idea. It's like a pocket domino fence for dowels. You could work with Axminster or Lee Valley and bring it to the market.
