DF500 -- Domino Deepening Jig (8mm & 10mm)
« on: June 25, 2019, 08:34 PM »
In one previous table project, I have used a drill bit to deepen some 10mm mortises (cut with a DF500) so I could use the 10mm x 24mmx 80mm dominoes in 6 joinery locations. I wanted a proper jig to do the drilling job if in the future, the need arises again. Here is what I came up with: one for deepening 8mm dominoes; one, 10mm.

10mm drill bushings, as it turned out, aren't easy to find (drill guides and steel tubes that are sold as 10mm I.D. were not really 10mm in diameter! :(). (http://festoolownersgroup.com/other-tools-accessories/source-for-10mm-dia-drill-bushing/msg579926/#msg579926)

After trying out a few supplies, I settled with this: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=32246&cat=1,180,42311,42335

Of course, if your work requires the frequent use of both small and short dominoes, and large and long dominoes, acquire a DF700 in addition to the DF500.
