The wood joinery work pieces are marked with checkmarks to indicate
the front and top of each work piece, and “X” to indicate the surfaces
to be drilled.
Check marks are machined on the jig to guide placement of wood
joint work pieces
END (A) of the Dowelmax is set flush with the top of the first
wood joint work piece as shown. (Note:The Dowelmax in the following
pictures has been labeled at either end for illustration purposes).
END (B) of the Dowelmax is set flush with the top of the second
workpiece as shown. The Dowelmax always references accurately from
the same wood joint face and edge on both work pieces and is not
affected by differences or variations in workpiece thickness.
Position and clamp Dowelmax to the first wood joint work piece
with check marks on work piece to check marks on Dowelmax. Drill
required number of holes.
Position Dowelmax on second wood joint work piece with check
marks on second work piece to check marks on Dowelmax. Drill an
identical sequence of bores.
Glue and insert fluted hard wood dowels into the closely spaced
accurately aligned holes.
The use of multiple closely spaced dowels that go in snug ensures
perfect precision wood joinery that is extremely strong.
The wood joint made with the Dowelmax has multiple, closely
spaced dowels, and a precise and snug fit with no gaps to produce
an extremely strong and well connected dry-fitted wood joint. The
number of dowels used creates a large glue surface. Wood joinery
surfaces can be made flush within .002 inches (0.05mm).
Fit wood joinery work pieces together and lightly clamp.
The distance gauge can be used to accurately align dowels on
long work pieces. The operation of the Dowelmax referencing system
ensures perfect results and practically eliminates measuring. All
multiple dowelwoodworking joints built with Dowelmax are made using
the same basic method for all sizes and configurations.
The Dowelmax dowel jig comes with a detailed instruction booklet and instruction DVD detailing the above steps. If you need additional information or assistance, please contact us by telephone or Email.
