    • I used CA glue on the small glue block piece (3/8 x 3/8 x  3) that is on the underside where the top slider meets the front, but I think I’ll beef that up on version 3.0 with two small dowels drilled from the front of the end piece. The fixed end piece on version 2.0 is glued and screwed, with walnut plugs hiding the one inch #8 screws.  
    • @Farback, how did you attach the sliding tray and the rails to the ends. I like your idea a lot better than mine.
    • I did and I find it nice to have an assortment. I think once you get into a groove on what size you use most you can just buy those but starting out I found it to be a nice kit.
    • The assortment kit is a good way to keep stuff organized. By my math the assortment saves you $10 over buying separately. The systainer is $99 so you really save $109. The cheapest way to buy tenons is to buy the big packs if you use that price per tenon it doesn't make as much sense to buy the assortment. Using the big packs you get the $99 systainer for $23 still not a bad deal. Though you don't really need 2 5mm cutters so If you buy seperatly you could save that.
    • So the DF500 it is. I'll skip the kit and get the trim stop if I find I need it. I've used the cross stop and don't really see a need for it. Next question: Did you get the Domino assortment kit with the additional cutters? Buying the other 4 cutters and dominos separately costs about $2 less than the kit with 5 cutters, the dominos and the systainer. Of course, the kit has 200 fewer dominos than buying them separately (at an average cost of $.12/ea - I do love me a good spreadsheet) but who's doing that kind of math? I'm leaning toward the assortment option since I'd have all the sizes on hand and can just work on whatever I want instead of waiting around for cutter and such to arrive.
