Measure twice and always do a “test run” ! I read a very sad but “eye opening” account of Blake and his experience making cabinet doors. All looked perfect, the milling went great but the calculations were wrong …. thought I’d add the account to our blog.
It could happen to anyone …..

Install “Spaceballs” quickly and with ease …
The EZBall Insertion Gun will make all the difference … saving time, labour dollars and frustration.
Easy to use …. fill the reservoir 3/4 full with “Spaceballs”, add a tsp of industrial talc, connect the airline and you are ready to go. Slight adjustments maybe needed to adjust to the size of “Spaceball” in use. We do adjust that for you at time of purchase, but if you use different sizes of “Spaceballs”, you will need to make the adjustments for different sizes. Can’t be easier !
The EZBall gun is light weight and easy to use.
Currently available for $ 330 Cdn.

Comments from the WEB .…..
These are a few of the general questions/comments I came across.
We use a .188 Spaceball on our raised panel doors
Spaceballs come in more than one diameter.
I use Spaceballs and think they work fine.
That spacing is for the 260p ( 1/4″ groove )
Yes…. It sounds like the wrong size Spaceballs was being used.
Spaceballs come in different sizes.
The available sizes are
260p ( 1/4″ groove )
use minimum 5/32″ spacing per side
232p ( 5mm groove)
use minimum 3 mm spacing per side
190p ( 3/16″ groove)
use minimum 3/32″ spacing per side Using the correct size of Spaceball for your dado, install using the correct spacing allowances and Spaceballs will save you time and frustration!
The purpose of Spaceballs is to act as a spring to keep your doors from cracking by centering them. The other advantage is they keep the panels from rattling. Other products do not spring back after being compressed for years. Foam does not have enough spring in it to be effective year after year. Many doors have been ruined and have had to be replaced, when the oils or chemicals used in their makeup were squeezed out after the doors expanded and stained the door panel.
boards glued up and installed vertically. The end panel will be sandwiched between the front and back legs of the dresser(20″ in depth). I’m concerned about wood movement from front to back (across the 20″ dimension). Any recommendations for how to join the panel to the front and rear legs? Dado with Spaceballs?
