The 'DOMINO' is a unique jointing system using rounded loose tenons to join timber giving very strong accurate and precise joints. Combining exceptional versatility with simple handling for maximum precision, the DOMINO has a patented routing principle with a wide range of adjustment options to make it extremely easy to use. The machine's fence can be adjusted to cut slots centrally in 5 pre-set timber thicknesses and manually adjusted for other thicknesses. The dowels can be placed centrally, offset, in pairs or groups. There are retractable stops for accurate positioning from the edge of the work piece. The jointer fence can be adjusted to 5 pre-set angles and is also infinitely variable between 0 and 90°. There are 6 different sizes of DOMINO available.
Various accessories increase the versatility of the DOMINO: Support bracket which is a simple right angle bracket that attaches to the base of the Domino with two thumb screws, this can be used to add surface area to the face of the Domino to increase stability during use. Trim stop to help align narrow wooden strips between 22 and 70mm centrally, plus it can also be used for mitre cuts. Cross stop, which is used for repeat hole spacing between 100 and 205mm without the need for marking the work. Handrail fence and DF-stop for reducing dowel centre from 37 to 20mm.

Brilliant machineI've had the Domino for around three years and have found it absolutely superb! Beautifully made, easy to use and despite the high price, earned its cost over and over again because its such a clever innovation. I haven't used my mortiser once since getting it. The instructions supplied don't do it justice, so I've found it helpful to explore online to get best from it. Highly recommended.

Just amazingJust an amazing machine. festool are just in a different league so much so that using them doesn't feel like work. The speed and accuracy of this tool can't be matched and the more you use it the more jobs you find for it, its so versatile. Yes there is the sticker price shock but you get what you pay for and of all the festool tools I own I don't regret buying one of them.

Game changerThe Domino jointer is a true innovation - perhaps one of the most important developments in woodworking in many years. It really is that good. I feel sympathy for purists who see this as cheating, but then the same was probably said about the morticer when it was first introduced. And this can do everything and far more besides than any morticer, and it is fully portable. The ease of use and accuracy are hard to describe. Virtually no skill is required to make perfect and repeatable mortice and tenon joints, and the time saved even for the most skilled hand workers is immense. A perfect joint in 10 minutes? No problem. Yes it seems expensive, but the engineering is Festool quality and the applications are so numerous that it will quickly become one of your most used (and loved) tools. Worth every penny.
