yes amana makes them for the domino,have never tried theirs but amana makes good quality bits and blades so i would assume they would be good.

The ones at Holbren’s I linked to are made my CMT and get good reviews on the Festool Owner’s Group. I see the same CMT made cutters on Amazon too.

While on the topic of Festool charges way too much, AFTER having already charged you way too much…...

Taytools is selling Dominos, seem to me to be just as good, just less visible print on them, but plenty sturdy, and sized perfectly. A lot less $$$$$$ too. I’m newer to this Festool game, so if these are the HIGH priced option, someone please post the link to the lower priced option.

Plus if you take AK Guys tip, and order from Brian at Holbren, drop the words “W O O D N E T discount” in your order, or tell whoever is taking your order on the phone, and you will buy them a little lower priced. IIRC it’s 10%.

I have the CMT aftermarket cutters, and they are very good…just as good as the originals. Seems like I read somewhere that CMT actually makes the Festool bits for them.

Sorry guys but I have a different take.

Would you put VW brake pads into a Rolls Royce?

I’m guessing when (not if) the cheap cutters crap out, you’ll be writing a bad Domino review.

If you used the Domino properly it should not crap out for quite a long time and if they wore out due to use, surely the return from the projects could justify a branded set.

Far too many people blame branded tools because of cheap accessories substitutes.

Nothing wrong with saving a few shekels, but at times people can go to extremes.

Nope, I don’t have shares in Fe$tool but I get annoyed by bad review and comments due to “misuse” of any tool.

to a certain point i agree duckie but amana and cmt are good quality blade and bit makers so i wouldn’t worry about the quality too much.but i do tend to stick to the oem parts usually.i mean if ya can afford a 1000-1500 domino what the hell is 30-40 bucks for a bit that will last a hell of a long time.ive had my domino now for about 5 years and have yet to buy new bits and it’s had more than the average hobbiest use.

Hell pottzy, words of wisdom… from you… cheeze… go girl! I have bought many Amana parts before you Yanks started charging an arm and a leg for shipping to Australia. Agree that some companies make great replicas… but I’ve seen too many people complain about compatibility issues of the el cheapo brand.

I was bloody selfish in my answer… the more aftermarket parts are bought the greater the chance to Fe$tool cutters going up in price in the future… that’s gonna affect me in 5 or so years (just bought my Domino recently… when they released their breakdown connectors), when my cutters start to crap out.

I don’t think I’ve ever bought anything from Amana, but I can tell you that CMT is anything but a “VW” in their area. They are actually a premium tooling manufacturer…one of the best (and often most expensive) out there.

Not that it matters but Rolls-Royce is owned by VW since 1998. So is Bentley and others. Porsche family is the main stockholders in VW. So I guess I have put VW brakes on my Porsche Cayman S. Porsche is part of VW.

Don’t doubt it 987, but I’d hate to take my RR for a VW service… Nevertheless I’d hate to drive down the tarmac to my Learjet with those skinny tyres on the Rolls… do they make VW whitewalls?

I had to lol at the Rolls Royce VW analogy seeing that VW makes the RR brake pads. Although if you are meaning pads from an actual VW, they wouldn’t fit anyway. It would be like trying to use a drill bit in your domino. ;)

I am not going to worry about it. I will never be able to afford one. Luckily I have a friend that lets me borrow his when I need it.
