I've been working on an illustrated comparison of the LEIGH FMT and the
DOMINO - for what seems like FOREVER. Now that I've gotten familiar
SketchUp I finally have an adquate way to do the illustrations that
will semi-clearly show the procedures - and what can go wrong - with
each of these "tools".
I have, and have used, the Festool DOMINO, on REal World projects - but
have no connection with Festool or any of their dealers. I paid List
Price for the DOMINO
- and its accessories.
I had, and used, the TREND M&T Jig which works much like the FMT, albeit
not as precisely, or easily. So I have some familiarity with how the FMT
works - and what can go wrong using a jig like the TREND M& T and LEIGH
router based jig.
Having disclosed my potential personal bias - I want to make a
that's objective - in hopes that it will help a woodworker make a
decision since both "tools" are pricey.
With that out of the way, I'm looking for an EXPERIENCED FMT USER (not
just an owner who has used it a couple of times) to go through what I've
put together so far - and give me some feedback on this stuff - noting
things that are wrong, things that aren't included that should be and
suggestions on how to improve the comparison.
Here's a link to the first page of the comparison.
