Product Overview

Details

Festool's DF 500 Domino Joiner Set includes two additional accessories to get more out of your joiner. These accessories are a Trim Stop, which allows you to register on thin or narrow pieces, and a Cross Stop, for repeat mortise indexing.
Joining has always been a slow, difficult process. Never again, thanks to Festool's new DOMINO joining system. The system consists of the DOMINO Joiner and prefabricated, solid beech, DOMINO tenons. The DOMINO joiner, with its revolutionary cutting method, simple indexing features and adjustable mortise sizing, makes flawless mortises every single time. The DOMINO tenon is equally as impressive - it is 100% rotation proof and far stronger than either biscuits or dowels.
Features:
  • Trim Stop provides easier registering on narrow pieces
  • Cross Stop provides easier operation for repeat mortise indexing
  • Mortise width adjustment offers easier alignment when joining panels
  • Precise depth adjustment for five different mortising depths, relative to the size of the tenon required
  • Spiral cutter rotates and oscillates for a perfect mortise every time
  • Pivoting fence creates angled mortises from 0 degrees to 90 degrees, with positive stops at 22.5 degrees, 45 degrees, and 67.5 degrees
  • 7 position stepped height stop offers versatility for different material thickness ranges for fast and easy fence height adjustment
  • Durable carbide tipped spiral bit withstands up to 14000 joints
  • Simple and quick bit changes for less downtime
  • Integrated dust extraction means a clean work piece when finished for ready to glue mortises
  • Plug-It interchangeable cord fits various Festool tools for quick and easy tool changes
Includes:
  • Domino DF 500 Q Mortise and Tenon Joiner - 574332
  • SYS-2 T-Loc Systainer
  • Domino Cross Stop Set
  • Domino Trim Stop
  • D5 Domino Cutter
  • Support Bracket

brings the joinery shop to the field
I was at first reluctant to buy this tool. About three years ago we got a job that this could be utilized on and I bit the bullet. This machine has far exceeded my expectations. The engineering that goes into these machines is cutting edge. The quality, fit and finish of these tools justify the pricetag. Use this for any joinery you can think of where you want a blind joint, glue joint aand etc.

The bitterness of poor work is remembered far longer than the price of quality.

The secret to quick mortise and tenons
This product is thoughtfully designed, with attention to accuracy, ease of use, & user comfort. I took it out of the box and was making mortise and tenon joints in less than an hour. The joints are just the right fit. I was able to figure out all adjustments intuitively. Nice, long cord, I like the power switch action. Lots of improvement over the ol' biscuit joiner. Plenty expensive- I guess you get what you pay for though.

Best thing since sliced bread
I build furniture as a hoppy. I have 4 grand kids and when they grew out of their baby beds I built them bunk beds. My design was pretty simple, in my headboards I had 1/2 x 1" spindles, on my first bed I purchased a mortise jig and mortised every one individulally (It took a long time), I was not satisfied with the end results as the spiral bit used for mortising and the round over used for then spindles were not always the same radiuss. On my next bed I used a rabitt joint and filled the voids in between each spindle, zOK but not perfect, The next bed I purchase the festool domino tool and presto the perfect end result, easy to use, faster end result than anything else I tried, the only negative is it is a little pricy but it did give me the perfect results I was looking for.

Beats cutting mortise and tenon joints
This is a great alternative to mortise and tenon joints for cabinet frames. The domino is much stronger than a biscuit joint. It takes some practice to learn to use it well. Keep the manual handy! I like the fact that you can choose to have some "play" in domino placement - this makes assembly of joints much easier.

More than a biscuit joiner replacement
I have used the Domino to replace biscuits throughout my furniture projects. Face frames are quick and easy. I have also used it to make mortises for slats in a mission desk. It worked great. The ability to register the mortises with respect to each other with the cross stop set and to a surface with the fence or bottom of the tool makes it quick and easy to make multiple mirror image mortises without laying out each one.

The only drawback I have seen so far is that the 5mm bit is fragile. If you plunge too quickly you can break the tip off, which I have done.

Best joinery system I know of
The Domino was my first Festool purchase and I couldn't be happier with it. I use it to join everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. From mitered casework to joints in butcher block countertops. Easy to setup an offset joint too for a table apron for instance. The integrated scale makes it a no brainer. I would certainly suggest using a vacuum or dust extractor when operating this tool. I did without for over a year but now that I have a Festool dust extractor I would not go back. One other point of interest: the slots are PERFECTLY machined. So much so that the fit can be rather tight. Keep a mallet or hammer close by when inserting Dominos. In one word - Snug(and that's a good thing).

Quickest Quality Mortises
Just got this a week and a half ago, and already have used it on three jobs. It has a little learning curve, like most Festool machines, but it is absolutely worth it. If you haven't yet, this is a tool that might make you go metric, or at least become comfortable having it as an option. After a brief transition it becomes so clear why it is the logical choice in much of the world.
My biggest concern with the Domino was strength of the joint, and I am satisfied. I think it will be a rare very large piece that requires anything the domino can't do. It's so fast that adding a second tenon in a large joint is no problem.
I strongly recommend this machine.
