Festool has introduced a truly new joinery machine called the Domino. It looks and handles like a biscuit joiner, but the Domino uses an oscillating cutter to make oval-shaped mortises. A Domino tenon fits precisely into these mortises to join parts together. Optional attachments – for centering the Domino on narrow face-frame stock, and for making equally spaced mortises along the edge of a long board – make these tasks easy and accurate. It even cuts angled joints. For those of you familiar with Festool's quality engineering – you won't be disappointed. Using the Domino is like driving a fine German car.
