I am looking to do a walnut counter top out of 8/4 thick wood. What blade would you all use to rip the boards on the MT55c? 1. the 16 tooth mafell or 12 tooth tenryu 2. the 48 tooth saw blade from mafell 3. the 32 tooth saw blade from mafell 4. the 24 tooth saw blade from mafell
I will be glueing the three boards together afterwards.
I use the Tenryu 12 tooth ripping blade as often as I can but you don't get a glue ready joint(in my opinion.) Although if it was me I would rip it and then move to the Jointer. That way you get square and clean joints in a flash.

I agree, I have frequently brought out a router table to projects to help clean up edges on work pieces that are too small for me to plane with my EHL-65 electric hand plane.
Another option for cleaning up cuts is a portable thickness planer. Of course, the thickness planer will not straighten a board, but if you're just looking to clean up saw marks it can be great.
On a recent new home the customer decided he wanted his window and door casings changed from 2.25" to 2", this is of course after all of the trim was delivered. Everything got a pass through the table saw, then a single pass through the thickness planer to clean up the edge and the trim was ready to go!
With your countertop, I'd suggest one of two options, after you're made your initial pass with a low-tooth ripping blade: If you have an electric hand plane, use this to take a pass or two to clean up the edge. Otherwise, simply back your track off from the line so you're only removing 1/32" or so, and make a final cleanup pass with a finer tooth blade.
Best of luck to you on your project, I'd love to see pictures once you're done!
I will be able to use a coworker's jointer and planer. I have the tenryu 12 tooth blade coming tomorrow. I will rip with that then joint and plane each board. After which I will glue up and send through a friends large drum sander.
Once done I will get a photo and post. The walnut will actually pair up with concrete counter that my wife and I will be casting this week too.
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?
