You ask about a review. Well sorry but no. The first (and last) review I did (not here I hasten to add but on a forum not a million mles away and populated by a thicket of Ned Flanders clones) was met by such a barrage of ill-mannered posters that I swore never again. I could not believe that there were so many morons out there who could question a tool without ever seeing or using one.

Dont be like that Pat  :) Their is a different breed who participate on this forum, no garryK`s here :P

I copped exactly the same on the same forum when i started to post about the Domino, so i dont bother now. Their loss.

I would love to see a pic or 2 of the Kapex and 1 or 2 of Simou for good measure  :)

I do agree that there's probably a much different breed here than there is on other boards. Just the mention of Festool on mainstream boards gets people all fired up. Never will understand that, but it doesn't happen here. Anyway, I seriously doubt you'll have any issues here. Well, there was this one time when this guy had a problem because I got my Domino before him...  ;D

BTW, there is a "Garry K" here. I have no idea if its the same person that you're talking about though Tezzer.

...the refined and succinct tone of this forum...
First, welcome to the forum. 

Now, regarding your ill-considered statement above, it's obvious that you haven't read some of my posts!   Refined?  Maybe once in a great while.   Succinct?   Hmmm...   I think most here would agree that "succinct" is not the sine qua non of my literary efforts.   But then again, we Yanks are a rough and uncultured lot! 

Regarding your literary efforts...  We do enjoy the textual component, but when it comes to Festool and especially the Kapex, please remember your audience.  We are simple, humble people who respond more to visual stimuli!   Therefore, to paraphrase dialog from that great American movie masterpiece ("Jerry Maguire")...  "Show me the PICTURES!   Show me the PICTURES!  Show me...".  Please feel very, VERY free to post pics. 

Best regards,

Dan.

p.s., Please note I am the forum's picture cop.  I'm just doin' my job.   :)

Anyone want to translate llap goch?

...but unfortunately the Aussies and the Welch (and the Irish, I might add) just have us beat when it comes to the subtle uses of at least their interpretation of the English language.  If we can figure out what they're saying, we'll be glad we read it.

Try this--go to Google and type "how to speak strine" into the box.  Should get you some useful hits.

Before I traveled to Sydney (only once, unfortunately), a buddy of mine loaned me a book by the same title.  I don't think it's in print any more, but it was hilarious.

Regards,

John

Here is the rest of the Dovetail being cut. I know their are machines to do this, but im just quickly bandsawing it and the end result is a reasonable "hand made" looking DomiDovie ;D

Hi all,

Tezzer's system makes perfect sense, albeit he's a master of the band saw. I use a Leigh D4R for doveys and am now starting to use spiral upcuts to remove most of the stock (which is what the Domi does) before using the dovetail bit. Puts less strain on the final cut and reduces the chance of tear out due to stress. Incidentally, I believe the DOmi could be used to produce good finger joints and wooden hinges as well! :o

I would have to say reading all the posts by Lignum over at WWF I would probably not have purchased the Domi right away. He has helped me more than he knows.

Its tough on WWF to udnerstand everything said, but I figure all wood no matter what part of the world makes the same sawdust so I love that forum.

Still trying to figure out why everyone dates Shelia, she gets around in the land of oz...

Thanks Ted. That festool thread at the other forum was good for months and months  when it was powering along. The Domino threads had massive numbers viewing it and some sensational ideas posted by alot of people. Shame it has stopped with bang and is now boring. Their was a lot of great posters contributing all the time. But alls not lost, as a lot of them now post here ;D And as for Sheila.... ive dated her but we wont go there :-[

Must dash as I do believe that a nice man from DHL is walking up the path with a Domino round holding jig for the one who thinks he is the Master but is really just someone I take for a walk each day.





Clachan a Choin ;D Id love it if you would post a pic and a little rundown on the round holding jig. I rarely use the out rigger arms but use the centering jig (thanks Anthony ;D ) all the time. Do you think the round holding jig is worth it or a bit of a gimmik?

John,

The book's title is actually "Let stalk strine", and its subtitle is "Nose tone unturned". It is still obtainable from Amazon.

I would if I could but I can't .......as it's gone back. For the first time in my Festoolian life I purchased with my eyes covered in a black and green mist. It was as useful as a chocolate fireguard. ;D
                         
I am sure for those that make lots of stair rails etc it would be a boon but I thought it would help me solve a particular problem and it didn't. In the end a 10p bit of MDF did the trick.

The only problem is that if we all start talking like you guys, we will lose our diversity here on the board -- kind of an international hangout for woodworkers with too much money, a la star bars scene.  Then, too, being able to completely understand you would take some of the mystery out of things -- Albert would have to disclose his real name, for example -- there'd be nothing left to hide, if you get my drift.  And then three, we'd only be beginning with strine.  We'd have to learn Welsh and who-knows-what else.

 It took me years. The lingo was easy ........it was dodging the stream of saliva that was hard. You try saying
