Just got my Erika today! Super excited to put it to use. aas , do you have pics of your cart?
I forgot to take pics today, but if you have a look at the "Erika + Incra LS = ... " thread, you can kind of see it in the photos there. It's pretty basic 90mm square uprights with rails around the top and bottom, glued and nailed to keep it square, lockable castors for moving it around. The Erika itself sits on a 22mm ply plate which is fine adjustable (as are all my work benches) on 8mm studs in each corner to compensate for uneven floor.
I can adjust all of my work benches from about 880 - 940mm - but usually I keep everything at 900mm so I can set up the CS50 quickly if need be and use any bench as a side support or outfeed.

Thanks - I saw the pics. I am thinking the easiest solution might be to just mill 10mm thick strips and prop the saw on those to get it to the right level. I will have to think on it - I need to be able to easily break down the Erika each day if possible so a mobile cart unfortunately will not work well more me. Appreciate the info.
Can you screw 10mm plastic packers on to the feet?
Strange decision by Mafell to make it 890mm tall, 900mm is pretty normal in Europe
Possibly. The feet seem to be slightly curved. I want to preserve the bottom for the time being, but might be the only elegant solution. I agree - seems odd to make it less than 10mm from common 900mm.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

alvychippy: It's the board hosts, that are having an idea, of somebody perhaps paying over the odds to acquire the board to administer it.... Obviously hopes are set high, Mafell isn't interested, so it carries on
