DOMINO Joinery System booklet

This is where the unique domino mortise principle comes in. The first mortise, known as the locating mortise, is routed appropriately to the selected domino diameter. Pairing the domino in the locating mortise, the joint aligns exactly with the front edge – the joint is correctly positioned. The remaining mortises are routed with clearance. This makes aligning and joining effortless; the joint is nevertheless exact, perfect and stable. On the DF 500, three different mortise widths can be selected, and two on the DF 700. 1.4.2 Selecting mortise width
