Here is one I have done for domino positioning. The Domino center line can be aligned with the markings on the square for easy repeatable mortises. Using the clamp across rather than as a hold down works very well and makes the set up independent of a place to clamp down on and easy to reposition.

This has given a great solution for doing glue ups for a wooden grid pattern for my radiator covers that I'm building.
Thank you for posting. It got the brain thinking outside the box.
Cheers,
JC

I use a similar technique to SRSmenza.  The only addition is that I use painters tape to insure that I'm putting the domino in the correct spot without having to look for the graduation.  Using the square works great for projects up to 660mm (love Woodpeckers).  For longer projects their story sticks are the Bomb, positioning with the squares of course.

I like that a lot... [cool] [cool].  It's just that mine will be registered in 1/64" increments... [crying] [crying]
