The biscuit joiner and Domino are two machines that seem similar but create distinctly different joints for different purposes.

The Domino machine cuts mortises and the Dominos are floating tenons.

Biscuits are not tenons. They are used for alignment when glueing up panels.

I have the Domino and it is an expensive machine. But I cannot make mortise and tenons as fast with any other tools as the Domino.

The Domino is an accurate, easy, and fast machine for creating joinery. I feel like it helps me make money every time that I use it.

But the most important thing to remember is that biscuits and dominos are two distinctly different types of joinery and should be used appropriately to create projects that will last.
