In addition to the standard joiner setup, this set includes a trim stop for use with narrow materials (between 7/8-inch and 2-3/4 inches wide) and a cross stop, which allows for accurate, repeat-hole spacing between 3-7/8 inches and 8-1/16 inches.
Spiral Cutter and Carbide Bit for Flawless Mortises
Festool’s patented routing principle is at work in the 420-watt Domino DF 500 Q’s spiral cutter, which rotates and oscillates as it works that will help you create flawless mortises. Thanks to a spiral bit that features a durable carbide tip, you’ll be able to consider the Domino to cut cleanly and quickly. Plus, each bit can be used in the creation of 5,000 to 14,000 joints, depending on what materials you work with most regularly, so you would not have to worry about frequent bit replacements.
Equally important in creating sturdy, long-lived joints are the prefabricated beech and sipo Domino tenons that are designed for use with this system (not included). These tenons offer large gluing areas for improved joint strength, plus they’re 100-percent rotation proof and sturdier then either dowels or biscuits.
Since comfortable handling also contributes to accuracy, the Domino is easy to grip and weighs in at just 7 pounds.
Adjustable Mortise Sizing for Versatility
Precise mortise placement and spacing depends on being able to execute acute tool adjustments, and the Domino makes these adjustments easy. It offers the ability to adjust the width of each mortise, which makes it easier to achieve perfect alignment when joining panels. And with the ability to quickly and easily select from five different mortising depths, you’ll be able to adapt the spiral cutter for use in a range of applications.
Plus, Festool’s Rapid Bit Change design means that you can change a bit in less than 30 seconds, which means that switching to a new desired tenon size never slows your work down.
Sturdy Fence Offers Height and Angle Adjustment
In addition, the Domino is design to permit fast, easy fence height adjustments. It provides seven different height-step positions, which allows for use with a wide range of different materials in quite a lot of thickness.
Also, the pivoting fence allows for the creation of perfect angled mortises at angles ranging from 0 to 90 degrees. For easily repeatable results, it features positive stops at the most commonly used 0, 22-1/2, 45, 67-1/2, and 90-degree angles.
Optional Dust Extraction for Cleaner Finishes
Designed to allow use with a dust extractor, the Domino can be counted on to effectively direct debris away from you and your work area, which translates to a healthier work environment, and mortises that are clean and ready for glue. In addition, proper dust extraction greatly extends cutter life, saving you money and the hassle of replacement.
The Festool Domino Joiner DF 500 Q Set is backed by a three-year limited warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee
