Perhaps a Dumb question

Is it possible to use imperial sized router bits in a Domino?

Just wondering...

Use the right tool for the job.

I'm not familiar with the brand you mention but generally you can use metric or imperial in any router. The main think is the shank size.

Nope the domino does not use a collet like a router. The bits are proprietary.

Yes the mount is proprietary. To illustrate, this link shows the different cutters available.

I think the mount is designed to be a quick install, perhaps without tools. I do not own a Domino, too expensive.

The cutters thread on the spindle.

The cutters may seem kind of expensive, but you can average a few thousand mortises before even thinking about having them sharpened.

Thank you guys.

Not what I wanted to hear but it saved me a LOT of effort.

I'm always trying to use a tool within its limits but not exactly as the designer had in mind.

Use the right tool for the job.
