Building on what Tom and aas said I would ask how true / smooth those embossed composite board edges are. The lip of the square may register / average area/s farther apart than saw track stops do or hit ridges that the deeper stops rest against vs the shallower lip of square.
I don't have a ks40 but I've done enough research to know there are only 3 blades available to it, all meant for cutting wood. I do own a festool ts55 track saw and have extensive experience in cutting plexiglass/acrylics/dibond/reboard. Yes any good sawblade will cut those materials, but it's not good for the material, not good for the blade and definitely not good for the saw (increased power draw, chatter, more forces on bearings and structure). The shape of the teeth on a blade meant for cutting plastics or soft metals is different to those used for cutting wood. In use when cutting plexiglass or any composite board the difference is huge. When using regular wooden blades the cut will be rough and not very precise, small chips fly away from the edge etc. Once you put in a proper blade the saw will run trough thick plastic like it's butter and the cut quality will be immaculate. When you properly make sure the saw is well set up and the blade is sharp it'll leave plexiglass edges almost as clean as a router.
What all this means is that due to the limited blade choice the KS40/kss300 is NOT SUITABLE for cutting plastics or composite boards/decking in any large quantity or with very good results. I was starting to worry/doubt my coming ks40 purchase reading about the motor issues on the cordless but to me this seems more like using the wrong tool for the job for at least some of the cases.
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?
