Re: Centering the Festool Domino on Imperial Based Materials

I have the Domino DF 500. I decided to try out the setup blocks. I found that the information in this article may be fine for the 700 XL but the 500 has an offset of 10mm, not 15mm. Make sure you take that into account when you make your setup blocks.

Re: Shop Talk Live 45: Taking the Fun Out of Fine Woodworking

I have to agree with the posting from BStev. I welcome some friendly banter and joking. I feel that I get plenty of facts and information from the podcast too. I look forward to a new episode coming out every two weeks. For just facts I go to the Fine Woodworking website or open the magazine. I normally listen to the podcast while I commute to work. It tends to put me in a good mood for the rest of the day and gives me ideas to search for on the computer during my breaks.

Keep up the great work guys! Don't change a thing.
