Looks like he explains this hand motions but I didn’t quite get it… it leaves a V shaped mortise, is that going to effect the strength?

it doesent leave a v shaped mortise. the head of the machine it angled but the entry path is straight so it cuts a straight path on both sides then it is moved from side to side to clean the remaining material out. Like I said “slick”

Very cool. This is a great example of why this website is so popular. That is an ingenious jig and inventor.

I see, it does waggle but does so while cutting so the resulting mortise is straight sided.

Rick I think you were correct.

If you look at the rear of the machine you can see the angle that it enters the wood at. The opening of the mortise is the correct size, but then left and right cuts “V” out from there. Just my personal observation.

I reckon the major engineering difference with the
Domino is the Domino has some sort of cam and gear
system to waggle the cutter back and forth as you
plunge.

Pfft…freaking awesome! Where do I sign up to get the plans for this badboy? My pantorouter is practically complete (this evening), looks simpler to build than the panto that’s for sure.

Sure some will comlpain about wiggling the router, think it’s great, especially with the overpriced festool.

As for this pupply, guess one would have to make their own silly dominoes unless you mortised a similar size to the bulk sizes out there already.

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…can’t access the instwood.com website, Federal blocks the term “wood” ...yet lumberjocks site is allowed, lol.

Thanks for sharing Mike and Loren thanks for sharing the plans. That router used in the vids is actually the same Lowe’s carries I think, and it’s on my short list of tools needed for small routing jobs.
