The CMT 312 series are the dowel drills for Mafell. They come in 5mm(£15.45), 6mm (£15.75), 8mm(£16.56), 10mm (£18.15), 12mm (£20.97) 14mm (£27.60) & 16mm(£29.76) all plus vat.Orders over £50 delivery f.o.c.
These are what I was quoted. I have been informed they are in stock now. As the guy did not want to be mentioned on the forum please send pm me for details.
Ordered a couple of the 16mm bits yesterday and where in the post when I got home today paid £31+ vat
Yes sir, each. I had to verify when ordering with timberwolf just to be sure they quoted me correctly. All of their drills are sold individually. I see the 16mm drills are now $101.50 each due to the recent price increase.
Might have to fashion a locked display case to show them off If only I had a few bucks left to buy materials for said case!
That is a pretty penny. Do you think that the 16mm size would work for exterior door construction? What about interior doors? Thanks
I believe wrightwoodwork did just that, made exterior doors. How are they holding up wrightwoodwork?
I feel that depending on your construction techniques and particular application the 16mm x 75mm dowels may work. But for example, if you're profiling your stiles and rails on a shaper and the groove depth on the sticking is around 1/2 inch your dowel will only penetrate into the stile approximately 1" more or less. In this instance I would not feel comfortable in an exterior application. However for interior doors in a climate controlled environment that may be fine if an adequate amount of dowels can be placed in each joint. So it really depends on the specific application and joint design of your project.
I have two 16mm bits on the way, should be here Friday along with the template extension. The bits were $97.60 each, ouch!
Didn't find any CMT's in such a large diameter.
Thats why I was saying to get the CMT and have a machinist resize from 10mm to 8mm shank. If you get the CMT its only $29 each for a 16mm.
My machinist can turn a shank in about 2-3 minutes. I just gave him 12 bits to turn and it will cost me around $50.
Yep, good idea for the larger diameter bits. May have to do just that in the future. These bits were on back order from a while ago when I purchased my dd40p, and had not done much research at the time regarding bits. From 3mm thru 12mm I'd just purchase the 306 series of CMT drills with the 8mm shank, the oal of those is minimally shorter and would not hinder any of my applications.
Well, I guess it's more like 9.5mm to cut off since the overall length on those is 67mm But,I figure it's worth a shot to try it myself. Worst case, I could take it to a machinist(rather than loose an eye).
abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
