Hi guys! So, it occurs to me, would it be helpful for existing, as well as future saw owners to create some sort of spreadsheet or info graphic that would quickly and clearly describe which saws are best suited to certain tasks?
Of course there's several ways this could be laid out, one simple layout would be list of saws on the left, and then several columns of cutting applications. For every application, there could be a scale of 1-5 (or whatever), for instance "1" being "Not Well Suited" to "5" being "Ideally Suited". Next to the number would be the suggested blade for best performance. Suitability would be determined by users of a particular saw.
Something that would be interesting, would be to keep the info graphic as an open, evolving document. If one tool is initially determined to be a "2" for a particular application, but someone figures out a neat jig or technique that bumps that application to a "3", that would be very helpful to other users.
Saws to initially include would be KSS-300, KSS-400, KSS-80, MT-55cc, and P1cc.
Examples of applications could include:
Cross Cut 2x material Rip 2x material Cross cut 1x hardwoods Rip 1x hardwoods Cross cut 5/4 Hardwoods Rip 5/4 hardwoods Cross cut paint grade trim moldings Cross cut stain grade moldings Cross cut exterior trim (ex: Cedar boards) Cuts in rough carpentry panels Cuts in cabinet-quality panels Cross cut Melamine shelving Cross Cut and Rip engineered (LVL) Beams
Alas, I lack the time or talent to build this grid, though I would be very happy to contribute to it. Any thoughts? I don't want to go too crazy over the idea, but I thought it might bring forward some unexpected ability in some of these saws we've overlooked?…..
The one thing I felt a little misleading on this chart were the numbers for the KSS80 and K85. The KSS80 is capable of cutting to 88mm off the rail just like the K85, and the K85 is limited to the same 82mm when cutting on an F-Guide.
I assume the other KSS saws are showing the same 6mm difference?

Yeah same thing Iike the dual size gauge on your kss80 and depth stop could be handy for certain tasks. Trying to give the saws scores for jobs can't do it all comes down to the size of job too hard to work out
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?
