Some of you may recall that I've been coveting a Festool Domino. I've seen
several on eBay go for nearly the price of a new one and the asking price on CL
has been around $800.
So, last night I posted a WTB ad on my local CL and had a response this morning.
Just got back from the seller (100 miles each way) and my Domino was ... $450
plus a quarter tank of gas. Ask and ye shall receive!
Nicely done, Larry. If I had a job at hand that I could use it for, I
might drop the $500.
Now I am looking for a good trim nailer to replace one that just
died. It was about 15 years old and only had a hundred thousand plus
or so nails through it (so very low mileage - not a SPOT on my other
guns) and apparently the internal piston bumper just go old and soft
and gave way.
But if I had an excuse to buy a Domino machine, I would buy it and get
Leon to show me his many tips and tricks. He makes it look fun and
creative, plus the stuff he turns out with it is truly unique.
I NEVER see them used, though.

Then you should consider being a little proactive. Many tool dealers
run Festool days and/or classes where you can go in and actually use
your desired tool, such as a Domino.
Once you're able to experience how truly easy it is to use the Domino,
it opens your mind to all sorts of possibilities.
Hmmm.... strongly considering telling you exactly what to do.
If I wanted a damn Domino I would buy one. As a contractor, I don't
need to buy a $1000 tool to build a hobby around, nor do I need it to
open my mind to the possibilities found when using it.
Proactive my ass.
in question is about a $450 tool. Why so angry? You're never too old to try
something new...just too close-minded.
Bullshit assumptions to add fuel to the fire?
There can be no argument that Dave's first sentence was irrelevant to
the point Robert was making; and even totally unnecessary to the point
Dave himself was trying to make.
Had that one sentence, with seeming condescension magnified by an
unfortunate choice of adverb, been left out it would have been end of story.
Try it ...

Nice install of those Home Depot cabinets on your homepage, btw.

I'm sure you'll really be happy with it. It's completely taken over
much of my joinery. Since I've gotten my Domino I've used my mortising
machine only for cutting square holes in breadboard ends, and I
haven't used my table saw tenoning jig at all. I'm not all that
innovative, but I have also used the Domino to cut slots for "buttons"
to hold down table tops.
Let us know how you're doing with it.
