Default An aftermarket Domino.

Do you think they will ever come out with an aftermarket Domino? I don't know when Festool brought out the Domino. I do not intend to buy one but still, I have been wondering "When".

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

From Wiki: "Patent law is designed to encourage inventors to disclose their new technology to the world by offering the incentive of a limited-time monopoly on the technology. This limited-time term of patent is 20 years from the earliest patent application filing date (but this term can be extended via patent term adjustment). After the patent term expires, the new technology enters the public domain and is free for anyone to use." (US patent law)

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I have always though the Domino is a Festool designed tool and they did not buy it from anyone, as a method to do loose tenons then it works perfect but I have said about Festool tools in the past that you really need the work to justify buying them, there are other ways to do loose tenons if all you need to do is a few of them, if I had the work then I would be happy to buy one. I do know a person who did buy one and it sits in its box doing nothing much at all and I am more offended by that than I should be. Buy tools if you have to work and if you have a lot of work then buy the best tools you can. N

Kind of like the Fein Oscillating Multi Tool. Original was kind of pricey. Once the patent expired everybody got into the game. Fein had to drop their price to stay competitive.

Lemmelo introduced the biscuit joiner. They went/go for Festool like prices.I don't know what the patent deal was but eventually everybody was making/selling then, even Ryobi and HF.

Hi, Mycrossover; I encourage you to fill out something about yourself in your 'Profile', over on the left. It'd be great to at least have a name and a very general idea where you're from.
Just friendlier, that all.

I'm really happy tool collectors exist. Yes, they do not have any justification for buying a tool, yes, the tools collect dust on a shelf. But buying tools because you love tools is a guilty pleasure at worst.

Remember, the tool collectors are important because they help keep prices down and production quantities up. Think about it, Woodpecker would be out of business, all their employees would be jobless, red tools would disappear, I mean, not a huge deal, but if they were out of business, we couldn't get those amazing email offers of tools that have almost zero relationship to accomplishing real work.

I guess I'd have to exempt the Woodpecker router plate and their wonderful (and overpriced) dial guage jig for setting up table saws.

High end tool collectors are all that stands between serious tool users and having to get by with only HF stuff.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

There's another category, one into which I fall...semi regretfully. The impulsive or unwise buyer.
I have more than my share of space wasting, dust gathering items. Thankfully, none of the red ones. Well, I do have a little red 2" square that was a gift. It does see use often. But, there are some tools, gadgets, actually, that have seen very little use. I keep thinking (hoping) that one day maybe, I'll put them to regular use. Be nice to see a little ROI.
