Festool Domino Accessory Demo : MultiFence & OffsetShims from RAB Tools | DF500 & DF700 Compatible



The DF-MultiFence came out of the frustration I had when I wanted to make flush joints on the edge of my material. Some might say I don’t use my DF500 correctly and to that I say…move a long. Now I looked at the actual Festool Domino Support and thought to myself…if this only had had slots. A sketch later and a few rounds of R&D and here we are. I know some might think this is “essentially useless” but I am a big fan of using this when making flush joints at the edge of my material. The Shims were NOT my idea. My friend Michael, link to his channel is below, shared that idea with me and I ran with it. He wanted an easier way to make offsets on his cabinets. I think both work together well and they are very easy to use.

In this video…I’ll be demoing our RAB DF-MultiFence on my Festool Domino in the hopes of showing you how easy our product is to use when you want to make perfectly flush joints on the ends of your panels. I’ll also be showing you our DF-OffsetShims in action as well…just in case you want to do a reveal on a cabinet or an apron on a table but before we get to that I would like to thank you for stopping by to watch this video and if you’re new to the channel and liked what you saw here please be sure to hit that like and subscribe button before you go. So with that being said….let’s begin.

The DF-MultiFence is a sliding support for Festool Domino that attaches to the base of your DF500 or 700 with the included knobs. I know it looks similar the actual Festool Domino Support but as you can see theirs is fixed…where ours can adjust to accommodate material up to an 1-1/2” thick but for this demo I’ll be using a single piece of the (3/4)” plywood I typically use in my projects and yes I made sure both surfaces were clean and free from debris before attaching and locking in the MultiFence to my DF500.

As you can see…the MutliFence is easy to use and it’s large window makes lining up your marks a breeze. With the mortises cut let’s put the both pieces together and see how flush the joint really is or isn’t. Now as I run my finger over the joint…the only noticeable difference I feel is where the smoothness of the veneer meets the…I guess I’ll say the fuzziness or fibers, of the exposed plywood edge. I do not feel a lip or any noticeable ledge where the parts meet. Hopefully the following scenes will illustrate just how square and flush the joint really is.

With the flush joint complete…let’s move onto the offset shims. First I need to swap knobs to accommodate the thickness of the shims. I used 2 16th inch shims and one 8th inch shim. In theory…that should give me a quarter inch offset. Let’s see what happens.

Now I typically use .5mm lead for my layout lines but decided to used .7mm lead so it shows up better on camera. So you can see some lead peaking out but I’ll use my Woodpeckers Mini Double Square and my iGaging calipers to show you how close to a quarter inch offset I have using shims made on a 3D printer.

I hope I showed you how easy the MultiFence was to use at making flush joints at the edge of your work piece. I know some might prefer to use the flip fence on the Domino and the Domino support for making joints like that and that’s ok. I’m not going to question a workflow that you’re comfortable with. Now the OffsetShims. I know my offset was a little bit more than a quarter of an inch but the error was around 2 hundredths of a mm plus I used 3 shims that added up to a quarter inch offset as opposed to using the single (1/4)”. So I think that’s pretty acceptable and not too shabby for melted plastic. Now if you have any questions about the MultiFence or OffsetShims or anything we have listed in our Etsy store…please leave those questions or comments down below and I’ll do maybes to answer them right away. I’d like to thank you for watching and until next time…take care and have a good one.
