Wow, yeah, I can't believe it took so long for another manufacturer to make "off brand" dominoes. Those look the business and in DIY friendly quantities. Unfortunately, not availble to buy here in the US yet, we'll see.

It's always interesting to me that Peter has all the benchdogs gear available to him and yet never uses the rail square or parallel guides when cutting sheets. Right now I have a Macallister track saw and use bits of wood or a combi square as Peter does (learnt from him obviously) to line up the rail. I always look at the BD gear and think I should invest but perhaps I should resist :D

It’s because it happens so infrequently James - either the MFT is there and ready to go, or I can just make a pencil mark and use a square. For the odd one-off cut. Not worth sorting out the parallel guides - I’d have to find them for one thing - just for a couple of cuts when I have an 18” combi square that will do the job. 🤷‍♂️👍

I enjoyed that video Peter, felt more ‘back to basics’ of what your videos were a few years ago; you making something and passing on your experience with a product.

The Trend Loose Tenon’s sound great value, I’ll have to go and take a look at getting some of different sizes.


One thing you didn’t cover was your thoughts on “what size tenon when”. I’m guessing 4x20 for 12mm? Be interested in what you’d recommend as being a useful set of sizes to get?

I’m personally quite happy with using 5x30’s in 18mm material, they work fine and I’d have to get a 6mm spiral upcut bit for my Loose Tenon jig if I changed. Plus I’ve got 300 o…

Thanks Geoffrey. Have to confess I haven’t tried the trend 5x30s with the domino, built right dominos have always been a headache! I know guys who keep a lightly sanded set just for dry fits, or have a set with a hole drilled through them to be able to get them out more easily.


Good idea about ‘which domino when’ - 5x30s are a great all-rounder, and I’ve used them in 12mm as well, through 4x20s are better for that. 👍👍

Pretty sure the Medite is getting heavier. I’m noticing that too.

"Notminoes" - That's brilliant! Trend should have copyrighted that.
