About 12 days ago I started a project to try out my new Domino loose
tennon joiner. I decided on a 3 step, step stool and used scraps that were
no wider than 3". This gave me an opportunity to use the loose tennons to
align and reinforce plain panel glue ups and offset skirts. The Domino
I posted pictures on a.p.b.w. of the "different looking" step stool.
Please take a look let me know what you think.
You can view them by going to the news group,
The pictures do not show any of the actual tennons rather just a small
project I built using the Domino for the first time.

"apbw" is a nickname for abpw (don't ask). It's a newsgroup
news:alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking where binary files (photos,
drawings, etc) can be posted and viewed.

the bottom of the page gives some project examples and there are links
to other DOMINO info - like manuals - the one that comes with the tool
is a joke.
Some of the literature I've seen says they're carbide on the ends -
I can't tell on the ones I got. But given that replacements are $25
the price of a good mid-range router bit, it's not a big issue - for
These things are not something you can / should try and sharpen
There are Eleven, count 'em - ELEVEN facets to sharpen - this is not
something for the Drill Doctor and difinitely not something to try
sharpen freehand. You can send them in for sharpening but I haven't
seen any prices for that service - or the turn around time.
My Insane Garbage Cans Surround project has me up to about 500
half in end grain and so far so good, still cutting clean, no
Picked up the rest of the wood for the Insane Garbage Cans Surround
project today. Only had to go through maybe a pallet worth of
to find the ten 5/8" x 5 1/2" I need. Still had to settle for a few
- that won't show, and a quarter to have of the face being sapwood.
Trying to figure out which board should go where when you've got
of them that have to work together is fun - then it gets tedious.
I'm going to have to walk by it several times a day - I want it to be
pleasing to look at - and to serve as a reminder of a good project I
can take some pride in. If you're gonna do it - do it well - and if
go a little ape shit and get carried away - well it's the journey,
destination right? This will be a great Post Card from the Journey.
They are carbide tipped and the junction is quite easy to see. On the
10mm bit it is the last 6mm, on the 5mm bit the tip is about 4.5mm long.
they can be sharpened up to 3 times or -1mm whichever is less
Festool says that the bits will last about 4,000 mortises when milling
into the end grain of hardwood and 15,000 when milling into the side
grain of soft wood
