Hey guys,

I’ve been using my Domino for few months now, and I’m not getting flush edges consistently.

I’m pretty sure I’m using it right ;-) and I’m being very careful to keep the plates flush and not plunge to rapidly.

Ask me anything.

Plunge at a slow steady pace holding the back of the Domino 500, right where the cord is

while lifting up. Hope that makes sense. It’s more of a finesse thing.

Mark your faces and use the same references as you make your mortices.

HTH.

Sedge has a helpful tip on instagram on setting the fence to 90 degrees as well but I can’t seem to find it.

Is this for the 500 or XL?
