So my wife wants me to build a new garden bench which is going to require a lot of 1x4 slats getting joined together.  I have a DowelMax but was thinking a Domino would be a lot quicker and less stress.   ;D  We don't have the design finalized yet but I'm not sure how often I'm going to need it going forward.  Should I pull the trigger?

@HowardH

Yes.

Very few people have post Domino purchase regrets. Add to this the fact that you could get your money back on it later if your mood shifts!

Yes I would buy the Domino (I have both Domino machines) and after 40 years of woodworking the only joints that I've seen failed (in commercial high end furniture) were dowel joints in Danish modern furniture.

Several books like "Understanding Wood" by R. Bruce Hoadley and others explain in technical detail why dowel joints fail.  Get the Domino joiner, you won't be sorry.

I can not say I had anything bought by Festool lately. It reminds me nice present that I received from the local representation of the brand.

I have several boxes Festool, one MTF, four guide rails and big taste to play. )))

My new favourite festool, FSK 55 saw with the 420 rail. Snazzy piece of kit. Really light. Has plenty of power from the 18v 5.2 battery and cuts beaut. Love it and the rail is genius.

Kev yeah I reckon the awkward way to set and reset the saws angle true is surely in need of updating, since they have done it with the HKC you would have to believe in doing it to their ts saws soon. That'll give me a new dilemma, do you sell and update or just stick with what otherwise is a great saw anyway.

I fear you can get into the update frenzy too easily these days. I find the TS55 fine on the tracks for what I do. If they bring something out that makes the process better I'll consider it, but it would need to be significant. I though I'd be inclined to rush out and grab the new ETS150 EC's as soon as I saw them .. but my current ETS150's are still excellent machines and to my surprise I've been sensible [scared] [eek]

Kev; did you get the Metabo 18V worklight? I was very pleased with the output when I borrowed one for a day. Great worklight!

To keep On Topic:
After renting (and paying way too much for) a concrete sander and vac I updated my grinder park and got me the DSC AG 125 with diamond tile cutter and hood and the diamond concrete grinder shroud. Put it to work immediately and I am very pleased. :)

(though the Systainer/grinder has a very foul smell to it and it hasn't aired out just yet)

What a stupid question ... when you've got the entire set of course!! [wink] [big grin]

Actually, I lie - it's just slows down as you only need to buy the new tools, accessories and consumables [embarassed]

Don't worry .. I've now realised that Festool is only a gateway drug to Felder [eek] [scared] Then you Festool spending will seem trivial.

The FELDER pusher came by the workshop today - a new Format Saw is inbound. There might be a new, larger Felder router inbound too...

If you think Festool machines are expensive...

On a side note: today we discovered that my colleagues CT22 vac was bought in 1999 - and still going strong!  :)

Hah! My guess it's no longer a question of "if?"  - now it's simply a matter of "when?".

... same boat for me.

Hope I can find a soft copy of that magazine [smile]

I came home from the Felder showroom with the 400+ page catalogue last week. So far I've managed to keep it free of drool [embarassed]
