jalvis, have you done much more dowelling of mitres since this post? Has anyone dowelled long edge mitres, in 18/19mm material? I'm going to do a test piece, and kill two birds with the one stone - cutting mitres with my MT55 and dowelling with DD40.
I've been building bee hives for the last couple of weeks with the MT55 and DD40. I'm using the wood from an old sassafras tree that blew down in the yard. My material thickness ranges anywhere from 17-20mm as it was milled with a chainsaw. The sides of the supers are 146mm long and I'm using four 5x30mm dowels per side. I'm mitering the corners at 45 degrees so I don't have any exposed end grain. The cutting and doweling have gone quite well. The biggest challenge was joining the sides together as the dowels fit quite snugly and you don't have anything to push against at the corner. I ended up making a simple jig from three pieces of wood that allow me to push them together using two quick clamps. The nice thing about the dowels is that once they are home you can release the clamps and move on to the next corner.
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?
