# Festool CT 36 Dust Extractor

## WOOD WORKING BY DESIGN

The following images will show how I created a 3-inch wide mortise with the Domino 700. The process is as follows:

• Scribe the center of the three Dominos to be plunged;
• Scribe the two edges where the Dominos touch;
• Plunge the three domino mortises;
• Plunge the two edges where the Dominos touch to clean up the 3-inch mortise;
##### Setting Your Scribe Marks

In this example my goal is the create a 3-inch mortise that is approximately 1/2-inch in height. To do this we will use the 12mm Domino cutter or bit. (Note. 12mm is approximately 1/2-inch.) The Dominos are

##### Some Helpful Metric Conversion Math

How many inches are in a meter? The answer is 39.37-inches = 1 meter and 1 meter = 100 centimeters (cm) = 1000 millimeters (mm). To determine how many centimeters or millimeters are in 1 inch we simply divide as follows:

100 cm / 39.37 in = 2.54 cm/in. In other words, there are 2.54 cm per inch = 25.4 mm per inch.

This info will be useful with the following images.

If we compare the digital readout to our math above it is truly amazing how accurate the Domino is. That is some damn good engineering especially when you consider the fact that these are mass produced power tools. Festool's quality assurance is spot on. While we may pay a premium for these tools, wthout a doubt we get a superior tool in return.

What you see above are three 12mm (height) x 25mm (width) plunged mortises precisely spaced to become a 3-inch mortise.
