I have watched the german videos to learn what I can but I am using 19mm MDF with 8mm bits. What settings should I be using to get a perfectly smooth joint? I have only just received my mafell device and am exctited about using it a lot more. I just need to learn a bit more about it. Any tips are appreciated, thanks.
Sorry yes. It is on the outside. I have got the depth part sorted and that is fine. I just do not seem to get perfect 90 degree corner. I have a slight overhang. When I measure the material with a digital caliper the dowell joint is about .3 of a mm off center. I was unsure if I need to change something to make it more central or if I am just doing it wrong.
It should be spot on - I would suggest you are doing something wrong.
For standard 19mm board you register off the base - I'll explain...
Find a smooth top to work from, lay the DDF40 perfectly flat on the base - for the end dowels you lay the panel flat with the outside of the join facing down towards your top; for the side dowels, you stand the work up at 90 degrees with the outside facing away.
As both pieces have been drilled while flush to the base of the doweler - you cannot have any offset.
Once you can understand the concept of this and get repeatable results, you can try doing the side dowels using a stop block and laying the panel flat - the end of the panel and the base will be up against the stop block - so the base will always be te point of reference.

Maybe pictures will help. Make sure to register from the same side. The holes don’t have to be centered. If they are 10 mm from one side and 9 from the other side it’s fine. Just make sure to line up the correct sides. I think we all have made this mistake.
In my domino I had an issue where the base was not centered with the motor so the slot was a different distance from the left edge/pin than from the right. Hopefully you get what I’m trying to say. If that is the issue, it is probably not your mistake.
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?
