Any thoughts about using the DD40 for adjustable shelving? For light-weight multipurpose shelving, hang standards with French cleats. Use template for drilling the standards and brackets large enough to take more than 2 dowels. Single dowels could be used as a drying rack and depending on weight the brackets could be taller to take more dowels.
I searched and the only thing I found was using the pantorouter to cut the tenons. Of course since I have this new hammer(dd40) and everything looks like a nail. So I'm hoping for either thoughts or links to threads that have already covered this.
Some other details that I've thought about. I'd use the longer dowels and glue the dowel in the bracket. But to remain adjustable , I'd leave the standards dry. I'll probably use a pocket screw in each bracket so they don't work themselves out.
My apologies, the french cleats are a different topic and I didn't describe the rest of the project well enough. I'm going to put french cleats around the bulk of the garage and different levels to aid in hanging things. But, that's irrelevant for this topic.
Here's a link to similar project. woodgears.ca/shelves/mortised.html I think this should clear up what I'm talking about. Instead of cutting traditional mortis and tenon, I'd like to use my dd40. This probably won't be what I use, but let's just say I use 1x4's for the brackets and 2x2's for the standards. I would use the dd40 template to run a single row of 8mm holes down the center of the 2x2 standard and hang them on the wall. Then I'd use the dd40 to bore 2 8mm holes in each of the brackets. I'd glue the dowels in the brackets but keep the other end dry. To make sure they don't slip out, I'd use a single pocket screw in each bracket.
Makes perfect sense now. That is a cool system. Made me realize a lot of possibilities. It would be a great way to install corbels under countertops. Often you can't drill from the other side into the corbel, such as at an office desk. Really cool.
The shelves in the article I reference seem incredibly strong. I know using dowels won't result in such robust shelves, but the DD40 would make short work of the job, and most likely strong enough. I'd like to use 1x4's but I'd also like to use 10mm dowels. Following the 1/2 rule they are just slightly too big, and I'd like to have them longer than the standard 40mm. It seems like although 10mmx60mm is a popular size in the UK and elsewhere, it's NAINA. Does anyone know where I can get longer dowels here in the US?
I've started to reply several times but keep getting pulled away. Yes, I had seen caldowel.com already and although it's not exactly what I was looking for, it should be fine. I just have to sit down and figure out what I'm going to order. I'm going to order an assortment to try to make the shipping worthwhile.
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?
