Triton TDJ600 Duo Dowel Jointer - Why Make Dowel Joints

Triton TDJ600 - What Features Does it Offer?

A key feature of the TDJ600 is the precision with which you can adjust the height and depth when drilling into the material. That's due, in part, to the rack and pinion system built into the tool, and the clear, calibrated view of the cut you have when using the tool.

The holes are 32mm apart, the industry standard, and the construction of the TDJ600 is such that they'll be exactly square. 8mm dowel cutters are supplied with the machine, with the ability to swap these out for 10mm or 12mm cutters, should they be needed.

Fully Adjustable

Fine tuning of the cut is another key feature of the TDJ600, whether it's the angle(adjustable via the front plate), the height (via the rack and pinion system), and the depth of the cut (via a stopper fitted to the side of the machine).

Each adjustment is clearly marked via embossed guides, all of which combines to making the TDJ600 very quick to set up, and completely intuitive along the way.

Cutting for a dowel joint should be easy, and once the TDJ600 is set up for the cut, it's just a case of placing the front plate against the material and pushing.

Fully In Control

Obviously you want to be fully in control, and the tool offers great balance and ergonomics to provide that control. The front bale handle is big and grippy, and the body is compact enough to wrap your hand around. The anti-slip pins(or jig teeth) on the front plate can be adjusted to that you're guaranteed that the tool won't slip or move while you make the cuts.

This makes working along long pieces of material a breeze as you have the control in place, and the cut will be pefectly set up, along you to move quickly and accurately along the work piece.
