Hi all, new to the forum. I have an Erika 70 on order. I originally bought a DeWalt 745 based on the fence construction. The fence system was superb, however the table was poorly constructed with uneven mitre slots, a table that was not flat and a fence which refused to square up with the table top. I had wanted the Erika all along but also wanted to save myself £1300. I have now sent the dewalt back and ordered the Erika. My aim was for the most accurate saw I could get, that I could physically lift in and out of my 2x2m shed every day. Hopefully I have now achieved that! Enough about me, my question is can you use the festool cs70 blades? They're both 225mm and the festool ones are far more available in the UK, and much cheaper for a good quality blade. Many thanks, and I look forward to asking lots of silly questions in the future.
Seems to be pretty close in size, 2,6mm kerf instead of 2,5mm on the Mafell - not sure on the plate thickness for the Festool, Mafell is 1,8mm - it's only 0,1mm off, that's not really enough to worry about, unless you want 'really' accurate.
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
