22 Nov Invisible Joinery Starter Kit
Colonial Saw has announced that it now has the new Divario P-18 starter set Systainers (Item No. 145551, $325) in stock. This is a Lamello joinery system that creates very strong, invisible shelf connections. It lets an installer insert shelves or dividers in completed cabinets on the jobsite, simply by sliding them in place. With the Divario, shelves or separation walls can be inserted into pre-assembled structures. The system also clamps components together during insertion, but that action only occurs at certain points rather than across the entire insertion length. That makes parts a lot easier to insert. The joint is able to carry high tensile forces. Clamps or glue are not required, so the connector makes it possible to assemble components at the most cost-effective stage in the chain – whether at production, storage, transportation or assembly. It can be either fully or partially fitted on site, and it is detachable for transportation. The curved connector halves have a lip on them so they never slip out, and the P-System groove for that can be created using CNC technology or by hand using a Zeta P2 power tool from Lamello. A jig is included in the starter set for drilling holes for two pins on the straight half of each connector. The Starter Set Systainer includes 80 pairs of connectors, an installation tool for the curved half, a metal pin jig and a drill bit with a stop collar.
