I know it's a lot of money, but this is best price I've seen for a while on these. Great piece of kit, bought one earlier in the year and wouldn't be without it now.

Amazon have price matched if you prefer..

I’ve got one of these, it’s hideously expensive but exceptionally well built, and if you want to make furniture building quick, easy and with seamless joints, this is the way to go.

Be warned though, this XL model is for making doors and giant bits of furniture (although you can buy an adapter that will accept smaller drill bits). If I had my time again, I’d buy a smaller model (500 I think it’s called?) as this is less cumbersome and easier to work with smaller bits of wood.

Bonus pic of some chairs I’m building as a Christmas present!

Mmm Domino's and biscuits, my favourites.
Screwfix’s description is terrible! Describes it as a ‘ biscuit jointer’ and evening states it using 0,10 and 20 biscuits.... haha morons.

I bought the adapter with mine as I found the XL more ergonomic to use than the DF500. It is a bit of a lump, but it's wonderfully engineered so works well, even with the tiny 4mm bits.

All true, the engineering is amazing, the joints it creates are 👌🏻.

Just a shame they don’t include the adapter for smaller bits in the box!

Edit - It is festool... if they can encourage you to buy an accessory they will

If he could do those dovetails by hand like the floor mats I'd be impressed
What even is it?

If, like me, you're not very good at woodwork, this tool allows you to produce excellent results.
If you don't know what it is, I don't think this is a deal for you. For a furniture maker, or a jointer, or a very keen DIY woodworker, this can be a very useful tool to join wood in a simple, quick and relatively elegant way.

For occasional use, there are very viable alternative options, including some which give a better joint for much less money (if time and skills are available, such as in the case of a proper hand made or machine made tenon) or which give more or less similar results with some care (a hidden screw here or there, some glue, dowels, brackets, as the case may be).

A domino machine can be a real time saver, but before its recent introduction people were able to do the same thing with other techniques and -usually cheaper- tools

Festool don't make the adapter (it's made by Seneca Tools), they'd like you to buy both machines instead
Do you also get a stake in the company for that price???
Great price and a great piece if kit although a bit big for the work I do. I have the DF 500 and it's superb, there's just nothing else like it on the market.

How much did it cost in wood per chair to make those please?

If you make them out of pine, about £10-£15? Oak or Sapele would cost £50ish, depending on what offcuts you can find at the timber merchant. Sadly it’s cheaper to buy from Ikea (see below for what I based my design on) but where’s the fun in that...??
