Got a Festool domino jointer. When do you use a domino verses a tradition mortice and tenon. I have used mortice and tenon for years. What is your opinion of the strength and advantages of each type joint?
I think they are just as strong as a M/T. I mostly use it for face frame construction and panel glue ups, although lately for ff's I've been going with pocket screws because no clamp time.
I built several drawers using and it works well for that, too. Just have to remember to reset the depth if they are 1/2".
Yep...thank goodness the Dominos are made from wood. I had to saw off lots of them and re-mortise when first starting out. I now cut one side on the tight setting (+.5mm slop side to side) and the matching mortise with the tight setting and then again~1-2mms on either side of the line. This gives me more flexibility with getting things dead on.The domino is easy to use and quick. But planning the location for multiple little tenons is a new thing and led to a mistake - that will make no difference in the end result. Still learning a new tool.
