Dovetail / finger joining system VS-600

Dovetail / finger joining system VS-600

Festool's VS 600 jointing system allows you to easily create perfect dovetail joints. Dovetailing is one of the oldest wood joining techniques and has always been regarded as a sign of craftsmanship. With a range of templates to choose from, half-blind and open dovetail joints, box joints and dowel joints can be produced to a maximum working width of 650mm.

The templates are easily changeable without the use of tools, and the basic unit has a solid aluminium design with steel contact bar for a long service life. The swivelling segment on the unit enables routing of base and side panels on one setting, while the simple clamping system enables accurate, repetitive positioning of work pieces.

 

   Build your DOMINO VS-600 system.   

Proceed through the following steps to build your custom system, adding the preferred items from each step to your shopping cart.

On any item, clicking 'More Info' will provide you with details specific to that item, including scope of delivery, specifications, and more.

 

When building your VS-600 dovetail/fingerjoint system, first choose the base unit, then whichever join types you prefer.

Notes:

  1. Copy Rings - All VS-600 templates are supplied with copy rings to suit the OF-900/1000/1010 routers. If you have one of these routers you do not need to select any copy rings. If you have an OF-1400 or OF-2200 router you will need to select a matching copy ring from the the relevant step.
  2. Don't double up - Each joint type step contains all templates, cutters and copy rings necessary to make that joint. If you select multiple joint types there is double potential to double up components like cutters and copy rings. So check your shopping cart before checkout to ensure you have not doubled up on any components.
