Re: Domino repair question

Part 61 is the main girder which is part of the main body surely you didn’t remove this as I don’t see how they could operate the motor without it to test it ?

Re: Domino repair question

Have you taken the machine to bits Rog as a quick google suggests the main girder is part of the main unit which would required quite some disassembly to remove.

Re: Domino repair question

Perhaps it’s a known fault that is caused by a deformed girder, so they know to get the machine running correctly it will need replacing

Re: Ryobi dovetail jig - Cutter size?

My own Bosch jig takes a 14mm wide cutter, that said the height of the cutter makes a big difference in the fit of the joint, might be worth experimenting with a few different height settings if you haven’t already.

If it’s the one I’m thinking of it was a generic jig found under a few brand names, take a look at this link & see if the image is the same as yours.

Re: Kick boards

Depends on the height of your doors & worktop & what you want your finished worktop height.

900mm is a fairly regular worktop height, if your door is say 720mm high plant-on & your worktop 40mm then your kickboard will be around 140mm.
It's easier to work back from known measurements.
