Re: dowels

Hi Scott, It has been a while since I tried but I did try to use the KD option to do this. I think it allows for a given number of fasteners and max spacing. We have a pattern set up for the common depths we use and just use the boring machine to do the vertical boring on the rest of them. It is a s...

Re: dowels

Hi, We use both doweled & dowel & confirmat. Ecabinets does not support 32mm dowel drilling but you can make it work. It would be great if there was an option to add 32mm hole pattern to sides & patricians then go in and delete the holes you don't need. I think this has been on the to do...

cuts the wrong size

Hi Everyone, I am doing a job for a customer that has prepared the files with Aspire. The files require slots & holes cut to an exact size and I find the sizes are not coming out correctly. Interpolated holes are under size by .005" to .01" and the same with the slots. Is there a calib...

Re: KD fasteners and tooling

Hi Josh, We have used them in the past but I just looked for the part online & I see the flush version in 16mm has been discontinued. I guess I will need to find an alternative for the 16mm. I'll give the minifix a look. We mostly use them on 19mm lock dado closet parts so it is not something I ...

Gerry, what thickness drawer material are you using?

We use 5/8" melamine or baltic birch.

Re: KD fasteners and tooling

Re: KD fasteners and tooling

We use the Rafix also. There are 2 versions 1 sits 1mm proud of the surface & the other will go flush. You need a 20mm drill bit that cuts a chamfer for the flush version. We use a 20mm drill bit for the type that sits proud. We don't use them on a lot of cabinets but for some applications they ...

Hi,
I found if the drill bits are listed in the tool manager before the other tools CN will choose them first.
