Hello after years of using biscuits for my cabinet work I am finally taking the plunge and buying a jointer . both the 700 and 500 domino in the future ! But initially I have another large internal fit out coming up comprising both built in cupboards, wardrobes and a kitchen . so the first purchase will probably be the DDF , I would like though on occasion when needed to use knockdown fixings we use haffle in the workshop and noted that there ixconnect fixing requires a 45mm hole the duo of course maxes out at 40mm ..have any of you found a way around this apart from of course drilling out the extra 5mm ? Or are there alternatives that you can recommend as regards fixings ?. I am aware of the lamelo however I don’t need to use knockdowns all the time and there knockdowns are very expensive when pricing up say a bookcase !. anyhelp much appreciated.
Thanks I have already seen this …my question was simply directed at any members who had found either alternative knockdowns or a method which allowed the ixconnects to be used bearing mind that the video is now a couple of years old perhaps an experienced DDF user has found a solution .
Cabinets can be assembled in various ways, as per tools and fixings they are meant to be used. DDF40 is meant to be used with various thickness dowels up to 40mm... I doubt anybody using DDF40 would be interested in re'drilling, only to use your mentioned fixing, that most likely will go out of fashion, as it's not a established, mainstream fixing. for the purpose of what you are intending to do, I'd say Lamello Zeta would be better choice to have invisible, strong assembly or.... have a look for "peanut connection system" vids as an alternative method for cabinet assembly. www.youtube.com/results?search_query=peanut+connection+system
Just to say I have DDF40 and recently used those fixings in workbench build. Drilling the extra 5mm was what I went for but didn’t seem like a big deal as the fence/depth adjustment on machine makes drilling the holes very fast, no need to bother with their jig as many would need to do.
I would like though on occasion when needed to use knockdown fixings we use haffle in the workshop and noted that there ixconnect fixing requires a 45mm hole the duo of course maxes out at 40mm ..
If we're talking about the same connector - it is 55mm long. They show an offset of 10mm / 45mm - never used them - but is it not possible to do 15mm / 40mm ?
They do an ixconnect that is shorter, without the hex lock part - ref 262.11.111
Otherwise there is a standard knock down connector that uses an 8mm pair of holes - wooden dowel in one and 8mm brass insert with screw-in fitting in the other - then you have to drill a 15mm hole for the metal locking lug. Obviously it is more visible than the Hafele fitting.
abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
