Domino XL Loose Handle
« on: January 30, 2019, 08:11 PM »
The front handle on my big Domino has been loose for a while, and I wasn't able to tighten it by turning the little black screw at its base. 

I called Festool Service and within seconds was connected to one of the guys. He looked up the parts diagram, grabbed an XL, and took the handle apart while we talked. 

Two little black screws, T10s, hold the two sections of the handle together.  The parts snap together, and the screws hold them securely.  I removed the two little screws, carefully pried the two parts apart, and revealed a big, bright steel cap screw holding the handle assembly to the fence.  A turn with a 5mm hex key (Allen wrench) snugged the handle down tight.  Snap the plastic halves together, replace the little black screws, and Bob's your uncle.

A big Attaboy to Festool service!
