I am not sure exactly what it's called. 

I've had my domino for a while now and LOVE it but last night was the first time I tried using the add on extensions and I have a few questions. 

Is there anyway to adj the extensions front to back.  The left side is tight but the right side is a mm or so off the piece.  It wasn't a big deal as I was using the built in fence as the stop for the most part but I figure they should be the same and tight to the piece.  I couldn't see/find anyway to adj.

And since I am asking, why didn't they allow for the stops to get closer to the fixed fence.  I needed to offset 20mm from the built in stops and the extension are set pretty far from the fence for the first available stop.

And just in case anyone from Festool reads this, you should talk to the design engineer about getting the extensions off when you have it adjusted tight to the fence.  The locking lever will not release unless you move the positioner.  Kind of a goofy set up.
