Would some dry-lube help? It's a parallel plunge isn't it, rather than a rear pivot? Is it possibly slightly out of square?
I've found that powdered graphite often works to reduce friction between metal surfaces without attracting choking layers of dust & contaminants. In my case by recycling the shavings from carpenters' pencil sharpening. The graphite only, obviously rather than the cedar surround.

Weird. Same as my own little KSS, then. Similar-but-different to a router's plunge, in that it operates with a lever/linkage mechanism instead of inner springs.
Are you sure that the plunge-lock lever is letting go of the for'ard post properly? Are the bronze bushings operating smoothly on the posts; i.e. no noticeable scoring on the post surfaces?
Could you have possibly blown any swarf into the top/s of the post towers, blocking the ability to plunge with compressed dust? Hard-worked routers occasionally need to be stripped down to clear accumulated dust from the post towers, cleaning the bronze bushings etc.

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.

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?
