Making you a master of joinery.
Joinery has traditionally been a very cumbersome process, but one of those necessary
evils of fine woodworking. Enter the Festool Domino, a tool that has completely
revolutionized joinery since its introduction in 2007. With the Domino in your tool
arsenal, joinery becomes undeniably fast and accurate, even complex joints.
The Domino indexing system.
The Domino incorporates an indexing system that allows you to quickly reference
off of the edge of the material or an adjacent mortise. This dramatically increases
production since it requires no measuring, yet offers absolute accuracy and repeatability.
On the Domino XL, there are actually multiple index pins that can be used in any
configuration to suit your needs. The pins can be pushed into a stowed position
when they're not needed. As you move from one mortise to the next, you can use the
indexing system to register off the previous mortise*.
The Cross Stop accessory extends the maximum distance that the indexing system can
register from the cutter. The indexing system allows you to consistently produce
accurate results without measuring. The Cross Stop accessory is included in the
Domino Set and Domino XL Set.
Hitting the mark.
There are times where you would prefer to scribe a line to make a mortise. In those
cases, the Domino has a window with center line and offset marks. The fence has
triangular holes that also aid with alignment. When working in a vertical orientation
when the fence cannot be used, center line marks are cast in the sides of the Domino
for simple alignment.
Quick fence adjustments.
Fence adjustments are quick and intuitive. Change the height or angle of the fence
with simple adjustments. A graduated step block lets you choose common fence heights
quickly. The fence handle is positioned in a manner to make sure that the fence
is stays firmly pressed against your material.
