Mortise and tenon joining has always been a difficult, time consuming process. Never again, thanks to Festool's new Domino system. It's ideal for making furniture frame construction, window and door construction, frame and panel construction, tables, chairs and cabinets, even face frames.
The system consists of two key components, the Domino joiner and pre-fabricated, solid Beech Domino tenons. The joiner's revolutionary cutting method, simple indexing and adjustable mortise sizing makes flawless, repeatable cuts every single time. It utilizes unique cutters (5, 6, 8 and 10mm) that both turn and oscillate to make crisp cuts with no kickback. An adjustable fence allows angles from 0 to 90° with five preset stops and a depth stop gives you precise adjustment for five depths. The cross stop allows the joiner to index itself for repeat hole spacing without marking your work and the trim stop is for use on narrow material with widths between 7/8" and 2-34". Finally, Domino tenons are far stronger than biscuits or dowels, have a large gluing surface area for extra strength and are 100% rotation proof.
