In this video, Steve MacIntyre explains why he has stocked his shop full of Festool products. It's a system, the tools and systainers are consistent and work very well in his small shop. Take a peek into his workshop and see why Festool makes sense.
This month's highlight is on the Festool Domino XL DF 700. This big tool makes mortises quickly and accurately. Even though it's a big tool, the smooth action of the plunge mechanism and oscillating bit means that it handles with ease. Check out our Product Tour Video to see the features in action.
