The TSO TDS-10 are the first material stops designed specifically for 20mm hole pattern worktops, offering infinitely and precisely repeatable position choices. Unlike conventional bench dogs, the TDS-10 Dog Stops™ are fully adjustable over three 20mm holes on 96mm centres, yet they remain as solid as a rock when locked in place on the table.
Simply measure and mark the first of your ripped-to-width pieces to the required dimension you need to duplicate. Place this piece against a pair of dogs oriented perpendicular to the guide rail. Then slide the piece under your guide rail until your mark lines up with the splinter guard. Before you do anything else, place one or two TDS-10 Dog Stops in the 20mm holes behind the edge of the workpiece opposite the side being cut. Slide each TDS-10 Dog Stop against the back of the workpiece and lock it down.
With your adjustment knobs securely locked, every subsequent piece you slide into place and cut will be the same length as the first piece you cut.
When you have a different length to cut, TSO Dog Stops pop right out of their 20mm holes without loosening the knobs and will remain ready to duplicate your original cut length in an instant. Just drop the TDS-10 Dog Stops back in their original two dog holes and your length of cut will be identical to the previous pieces.
The Festool® DOMINO makes short and accurate work of mortising for loose tenon joinery. Mortising with the DOMINO goes quickly; it's the setup that takes time. You can easily find yourself spending 10 times more time with setup and clamping than you do mortising.
A simple solution: deploy several TDS-10 Dog Stops and some conventional dogs to capture the workpiece. Cut the required mortices in all identical pieces. Reposition for the remaining mortices, and you’re done.
The kit includes pair of 254mm Dog Stops, 4 Double Groove Small Dogs, 4 M8 Speed Knobs.
