Hi TT,

That's an interesting Advertorial. I don't want to get into a "he says she says" with Bob Marino, who I believe is treated as a celeb over there.
What is said about the Domino is essentially correct and I believe that it makes projects not available now to some people become much more accessible. My main points are not so much grievances as maybe adding a little more reality to the argument. I have 6 different Festool products and I can tell you that only two worked as they should straight out the box. Most issues were easily fixed by me, but that's the truth of it.
There's a couple of points that I would like to make regarding the article, but these are only my opinions, so no aggression please.
1. The dominoes do swell in humid conditions, such that they will become hard to fit in the mortise. This is easily fixed as I have mentioned earlier.
2. The pistons need to be looked after well and don't respond to rough treatment. They should be oiled with light machine oil regularly, I guess depending on your usage. If they are not looked after, plunging becomes very stiff and you can end up with the plunger stuck up against the back of the plate and not be able to move it. This IMHO, is a routine job which is not mentioned in our manual, but may be in yours.

Hope this helps,
