Re: Domino Joining machine DF700

Hi Oliver I agree with the others, the DF-500 is probably best. The DF-700 is designed for much chunkier joinery. There is some crossover with 8 & 10mm dominos. But the cutters are not interchangeable. If you need the smaller sizes most often, then you need the DF-500. Full Disclosure: I am a Festoo...

Do you know the part number of the hose you bought? If I can find out what it was I can give you a definitive answer on what you nee...

I had a skin graft, I can't remember how many stiches, it wasn't actually that many tho.

Just over year later and it's pretty much back to normal. Some loss of feeling and a tiny loss of movement.
