Congratulations. 3 months ago I bought the small one. Used it only once. I made the doors for the son`s room. I want this bigger one also. Unfortunately there is still too expensive for me to have both . Too be honest it was too expensive and to have fx500 :)
I see new handle is much better. Because the old was not very handy.

robelo,Thank you for your congratulations! and hello to Mexico!))
I do not quite understand the question ..
maraziukas,Thank you!I do not remember when I had not worked DOMINO, I use it constantly. a new take for doors, has received many orders. Yes, it’s expensive, but beats itself.

Rembo,

Now that you’ve had both Dominos for a while, which one is your go to tool?

Since the XL will give you the same joints as the DF, plus more (from what I can see in the online manual), you will be selling your DF?

I keep looking at the XL trying to justify the expense. Someday…

Why should I sell them? I work with both of them and very pleased.
I can not imagine working without them.

Rembo,

Thanks for the response. Selling the DF was a joke.

I’d guess you used the XL to make the doors in the picture. Nice work!

I’ve used a DF a little, and it seemed you could hold the work/front of the tool in one hand and the handle/switch in the other. I can hear it now…poor work practice. But I’m sure people are doing it everyday.

The XL looks to be quite a bit bigger (I have not held one yet). It looks like you will need to clamp your work and hold the tool in both hands.

Based on my above impressions, I would use the DF for everything unless I needed/wanted the larger tenon. That’s why I asked my question. On a day to day, week to week basis, which tool do you pick up first?

Thanks

Have your say...
