Use 1 of 3 mortise width adjustments for perfectly fitting joints and fast assembly; easy to adjust while the jointer is operating. Cut long mortises in an instant thanks to the simultaneous turning and oscillating movement without kickback. 11/16" dust port extracts up to 95% of chips generated when used in conjunction with any one of Festool's vacuum systems. Retractable stop pins for quick and precise positioning of the initial domino tenon on both work pieces. Five catch positions at 0, 22.5, 45, 67.5, and 90 degrees, as well as infinitely variable mortising angles from 0 to 90 degrees.
Simple, precise mortising fence height adjustment (with scale) offers accurate stops for locating mortising opening in the center of material thicknesses: 16, 20, 22, 25, 28, and 40mm. Quick, precise adjustment for 5 different mortising depths. Robust inner mechanism for consistently accurate routing results. Works on everything from face frames and work pieces as small as 1" x 5/8", to large projects and heavy furniture. Uses pre-fabricated, solid beech domino tenons for superior strength.

Woodworking comes in all shapes, sizes and varieties. But no matter what your woodworking passion might be, eventually you’re going to need to join together two pieces of wood. And that opens up a world of joinery options.
Whatever method you choose, the question is—do you make your
joinery by hand or by machine? Here’s what our experts had to say…
Works Great... Expensive
Love the point and shoot nature of this. If you don't need strength... use biscuits... if you don't want to deal with the cost of the dominos... use dowels... I enjoy using it and it works well. I will buy an XL or a clone... when the patent expires in a few years.
Please Do Not Wait...
I do a fair amount of custom woodworking with kitchen/dinning tables, bar tops, chairs, stools, so forth and so on. Using pretty much any and all types of woods available. I asked a good carpenter friend of mine years ago what's up with this Festool brand and why so expensive? He told they are the "Holy Grail" of power tools and supposed to be the very best. Here we are years later and tired of kicking the can down the road I pulled the pin! I purchase the DF 500 Q with the CT 48 dust extraction system. They are pure magic together and worth every single penny! If you are like I was and thinking Festool is a little pricey they are...but they will make your like so much easier and worth their weight in gold! Anyways my good carpenter friend who comes over and uses my big table & band saw tools from time to time came over to check out my new Festool collection. He said "You really did it", I am so envious and happy for you.
I took a how to build a box class. Attached the corners with glue and clamps. Not good enough. I looked at mini fixs, too hard. Pocket holes, how to get them exactly right? Dowels, yawn. Biscuits hard to measure. Then came the domino. Man oh man this tool is da bomb. Easy to use, I have yet to use any measuring device to assemble my projects. It is dead on exact. The coolest part is I can assemble my projects with nothing but the domino's and disassemble to make design improvements then reassemble with no problems. I love this tool. You just have to get past the amazing cost. My Jointer, Planer, table saw, 12" dewalt miter saw were all each less than the domino. However I still would buy it without question. I love it.
Easy to use right out of the box. I did have to find my metric ruler to avoid converting measurements for set up. Repetitive cuts are easy to set up along with utilizing the built in stops.
