Domino jointer

A Domino jointer uses small wooden blocks called "Dominos". These Dominos can be inserted into precise slots in two pieces of wood and then glued together. The Domino jointer can more accurately position the joinery, resulting in a tighter and stronger connection. This makes it suitable for applications that require more strength and precision, such as tables or chairs.

When choosing a Domino jointer, in addition to the safety function, you also need to pay attention to the power of the machine, adjustability, whether it supports dust collection and the ease of use of the machine.
