Picked up a domino xl700 and all 3 domino boxes today and ordered the Seneca imperial thickness gauge + shim and the d500 cutter adaptor which should arrive early next week

  I would be interested how you get on with the adaptor, I purchased the 700 a couple of weeks ago , I also have the 500  and  I am curious how many 700 owners get by with just the 700.

  Thanks.

I have used "just the 700" for years. I really like it in all aspects. The adapter is great and for box work I mainly stick to 5 and 6mm bits. It hasn't steered me wrong yet!

I would say that the only complex task is if you have to make a mortise in the field of a panel (to attach a shelf/etc). It takes a little more thinking and if you do it enough, you will come up with some jigs to make it easier.

I love the heft of the machine and how smooth it all works.

If you do a lot of mixed work (doing 5 & 6mm work plus some 10mm work) on a single project, then a single 700 might become a PITA pretty quick. If not, it is a great medium without any real compromises.

Oh, and if you mostly do 4mm stuff, stick with a 500.

Cheers. Bryan.

I have just purchased the Domino df500. Even if i only work a few times a year, after building a small woodshed, i realized, how much work i would have saved if i had one df500 before.

When I picked up some Festool-parts from the shop, yesterday, I could not stop myself from buying a RO 150…  [big grin]. Looking forward to using it. Waiting for the rain to stop.

I had both a DF500 and a DF700XL until I got the Seneca Adapter and Domishims, now all I have is the DF700XL.

I use it for everything and even use a lot of the 4mm Dominos with it with no issues, just plunge very slowly. As the 4mm cutter is quite a bit shorter than the other DF500 cutters you need to set the cut to 20mm plunge depth to get a 10mm deep hole for the 4mm Domino.

Do you buy these adaptors direct from the usa or any dealer in the uk.

didn't get it quite today, a few weeks ago, actually, the Syslite Uni.  Never thought I would pay over a $100 for a flashlight when you include the battery but it's well worth it. Had to do some work under the kitchen sink and it cast great light onto the subject.  My wife even lets me keep in the kitchen pantry!  ;D

Got me this.

Store clerck made a mistake when I ordered, normally I just wait for parts to come with the standard weekly shipping to my dealer, but now he made it priority mail. Expected me to pay 12 euro shipping cost on a 4 euro item. Got sorted out though.



@Cheese, that's quite an expensive piece of metal you've got there, what do you use it for exactly?
