MrToolJunkie, I am looking for a table saw and very much have the Erika 85 in mind. I therefore wonder if you in the past few months have had the chance to use your Erika 85 some more and if you would like to share your recent experiences. Also, you mention that you have pictures to share - I would be very interested in seeing them.
To everybody in this forum: Thank you very much for all your posts. I recently read through every single post and thread on the Erika saws, it was quite enlightening. It also made me smile to read that now seasoned Erika users some years ago asked questions on this saw that they had in mind to aquire.

I posted a reply and I guess it did not save it - at any rate, I have used the saw a lot over the last several months and really like it - very smooth and powerful. Honestly, I am enjoying the native set-up and have not used the sliding table or table extension - so I would suggest holding off on getting that accessory unless you really need it. I did add an extension to the fence to allow for longer cross-cuts and need to add one more section to allow for longer stopped cuts - working on 2500mm - 3000mm pieces is a challenge. Dust collection is great from the bottom of the saw and not great from the blade-guard side. So far no regrets buying it whatsoever and it is a joy to use. Very accurate tool.

Thank you for the reply. Yesterday, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered an Erika 85 with lots of extensions since Mafell is currently offering a big package at a discount, and I know that I will be using all the various extensions in the near future. I might add the "outrigger table" (038309) at some later time. Looking forward to receive the saw and counting the milliseconds while I wait.
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
