Default Seeking guidlines for laying out mult Dom in joints

Anyone have any reference to videos or written procs for laying out multiple tenons to accurately lineup in joints?

Picture two tenons in the end of each rail to matchup with corrspondiong mortises in a side like a cabinet side with multiple rails perp. Half a dozen assemblies, want to reproduce 15 - 20 setups without measuring, drawing, each and every joint. Use a jig or fixture to drill the mortises on matching pieces on an asembly line basis so to speak,

Using the orig Domino, not the bigger XL

If you have the cross stop,, you can set it to register your spacing from mortise to mortise on one piece with the domino set to narrow. Then on the second piece, set the mortise to be wider and adjust the cross stop by half the distance of the additional width. On each piece you would register from the edge of the previous mortise.

If you are doing three or four across the width of a cabinet, for example, the tolerance of the wider mortises will be within the margin of error of the reset cross stop. I've never tried it across more than four so it could get off since the error is cumulative.

I have never had good luck with the cross stop, but that may just be operator error. I usually end up using the middle-sloppy mortise setting.

Try this - looks cool:
