Description:
The Domino is a loose mortise and tenon jointing tool manufactured by the German company Festool.

History and description

This tool, first on sale in 2006, cuts mortises in the manner of a biscuit joiner. Each plunge creates a mortise that is sized to accept a Domino loose tenon, creating joints in stock from wide. There are five cutter sizes (4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm and 10mm) for five different Domino tenon sizes. Self-referencing pins allow the cutting of rows of evenly spaced mortises with no need to measure and mark. Mortise width is adjustable in three increments with the turn of a knob, and cuts can be overlapped for long mortises. Fence tilts from 0-90°, with stop positions at 0°, 22.5°, 45°, 67.5°, 90°.



Advantages

  • Allows very quick joinery, useful in a commercial carpentry setting.
  • Flat tenons resists torquing.
  • Stronger than a biscuit


Disadvantages

  • High tool cost comparative to other joinery methods
  • Proprietary tenons (dowels) required
  • Brushes (motor) and bits will wear out in time
  • Noise and dust (dust extraction required)
  • Mortises overcut (i.e. the mortise is visibly larger than the domino) reducing strength.
