When joining a horizontal stile into a vertical rail, for face frame cabinets, what is the narrowest stile that can be end grain drilled with the DD40P using 5MM bits? (without tear out)
My math is 47mm or 1.85 inch. Here is my calculations: 32mm between hole centers, 5mm holes, (so far 32+2.5+2.5) or 37mm, but this puts the outside edge of the holes at the edge of the stile. I assume you would require a full dowel diameter on both sides of these holes; add another 10mm for a total of 47mm for the narrowest stile, Google converts this to about 1 13/16".
Is this acceptable stile dimension, aesthetically pleasing, or would you rather have narrower stiles to lighten the look?
Are there standards or generally accepted practices for this?
Asked differently: do people remove 1 bit and drill 2 holes using the red spaces to create a hole spacing less than 32mm for small applications like narrow picture frames?
Unfortunately this is the 1 area that I feel the Domino 500 has an advantage, 4 or 5 mm dominos would be perfect for narrow stiles, small picture frames or small mitered doors etc.
This is my first post, and find the information here very valuable and easy to understand. Thank you for your consideration of my request.
The answer is yes and no it all depends on the application the project is for. If it was something like a shaker style kitchen doors then you want approximately 75mm. Also if you are having a groove for the panel to go in to you need to make allowance for that. Then if you you where making a fine cabinet you may want slightly narrower maybe 35mm. The rule of thumb is a third but is not set in stone. When joining narrow stock is there ways of going about it like using only one drill bit. Or a block of wood next to the narrow piece. If I get the time or someone else does can maybe make a video showing much easier than explaining
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?
