Domino cannot do Craftsman through tenons, for
just one example.

Have you considered just learning to cut them
the old fashioned way? Is speed so important?

I dowel everyday stuff now. It’s reasonably easy to
get it right. I build chairs and I use real old-fashioned
mortise and tenon in some of those joints. Honestly
I wouldn’t want to use Dominos in most fine chair
joints anyway.

Then there’s the humble biscuit joiner. I don’t use
mine much but for angled joints it makes things
easy and for many applications biscuits are strong
