Description

In Detail

Festool 3 Year Warranty (Registration Required)

The XL jointer is perfect for making strong joints in furniture, door construction and many other solid wood projects. Creating elongated holes for holding the specially shaped DOMINO dowels, the cutter makes precise holes with no scorch marks due to the patented parallel turning and pendulum motion. Many different width and length DOMINO dowels can be used, the XL is the bigger brother to the DF 500 cutting larger DOMINO holes. Fully adjustable fences allow you to cut single or a series and central or offset holes with perfect alignment. The first DOMINO cut is exact, subsequent holes with a small amount of play allow for the joint to be aligned effortlessly. The result is a stable joint, secure from the first dowel. The DOMINO has a special shape combined with expanding glue pockets and lateral/longitudinal grooves to give the dowel a secure grip. Available in solid beech or Sipo dowels for exterior use are mould and insect resistant.

Various accessories increase the versatility: support bracket which is a simple right angle bracket that attaches to the base of the Domino with two thumb screws, 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 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.

Supplied as a set version complete with: D12 cutter, support bracket and Systainer T-LOC case SYS 5.

High price and limited applications

I'm s a joiner with 25 years experience. The domino has definitely changed the way site joinery is done and it has a place in the workshop. For people who have to make basic joints on site or are unskilled in cutting joints, or do not have access to workshop machines, this tool is indispensable. I've had years to hone my skills at cutting joints by hand and using woodworking machinery and using this tool for some jobs will mean they will fly together.
But this tool is definitely not the answer to everything as some are led to believe. 90% of my joinery requires a rabbit,groove or a moulding of some sort, depending on the size of the section this can seriously affect the depth limit of the domino. The smaller domino machine only has a maximum depth of 28mm so if you cut the dominos before rabbiting a 10mm rabbit the domino will only have a depth of 18mm. In my opinion that's not enough to replace a mortise and tenon joint on, say a kitchen door. Glazing bars or similar rails are also not possible.
I wouldn't be happy using the domino machine on external joinery. Draw board joints are not possible, haunches cannot be achieved with the domino which can lead to rails twisting. A wide tenon is far more stronger than multiple dominos and the gaps left between the dominos where end grain and long grain meet will be weak.
But all of this wouldn't be so much of an issue if the domino system was cheaper. For me dominos are too expensive to be used for simple alignment of boards e.g. table tops. For the price of 1000 dominos you could buy a good quality biscuit jointer and 1000 biscuits, the biscuit jointer would pay for itself over and over. I'm also worried about buying too many dominos for stock in case the swell up from moisture in the air as do biscuits,but because of the depth a biscuit has to go and they are inexpensive I always have plenty of biscuits at hand.
I know some people who have both domino machines for that price you could set up a mortise and tennoning system in a workshop.
This is a great machine and the speed that simple joinery goes together it will pay for itself in the long run,but because of its price and high running costs makes its limitations a serious consideration before purchasing.

There's no spots on my Dominos

Probably the best engineered bit of kit that I have EVER bought. Having been an engineer for over 50 years I've seen some very well built and well designed machines, but I think that this deserves the top award. I've owned it now for a couple of months, having bought the Domino 500 last year, another superb machine but not quite in the league of the ergonomically superb 700. When you pick the 700 up you think to yourself, gosh (or words to that effect) this is heavy, then you start to use it and find out that it weighs very little in use. It is quite a lot of money but currently I'm making garden furniture out of Oak and it's probably saving me 2 hours a seat in set up time. One item I would like to see in the kit is an adaptor so you can use 4,5&6mm doms with the 700, there is one available from an American website ( Festool do not recommend this adaptor) but it would be nice to have it in the kit. If you are in the market for a jointing machine of this type think very hard between the 500 & 700, go to Axminster showroom and try both, they are both superb machines, if I had to choose one it would probably be the 700 as ergonomically it is out of this world.

Genius

The Domino 700 is very quick to set up and use and you can get very accurate strong joints. I've now sold my morticing machine, my biscuit jointer and the dowel kits that I had as this is so much better than all of them. It is genius and worth every penny. I would not be without it. With a Seneca adapter all the Domino sizes can be used, from 4 x 20mm tenons to 14 x 140mm making it an extremely versatile machine. I love it.

Excellent Customer Service

Midway through a project my DF700 suffered a fault, I've always rated the customer service at Axminster. Not only did they arrange a speedy repair from Festool but also lent me the showroom demo tool to enable me to finish my project. Likewise Festool did not hesitate to to repair the tool under warranty and supplied a a comprehensive list of parts they replaced.

Worth it's weight in finished jobs.

Easy to use; not a huge learning 'curve'. This jointer does the job and now I wouldn't be without mine. There's always going to be the occasional job for trad M&Ts in my shop, but I can't think of an example right now. If you do a lot of M&T work, you should seriously consider this item. You won't be disappointed.
