1/4" is actually & accurately 6.35mm. You'll be forcing these bit into the collet, which it won't like. As you're undoubtedly aware high speed collets are precision machined to accurately & safely hold shanks of a specific size.
If forced, it will get stuck in there & won't come out readily without gross force being applied: i.e hammer & drift to the bit wings, blunt cold chisel etc. Don't do this!
I also don't like collet sleeves either. They invariably add yet another layer of potential slippage to an already insecure grip. The only instance that I've had of a router bit coming out in operation was when using sleeved bits. Again, don't!
conflates 6mm and 1/4"? My assumption was that this was a collet system like to ER-style collets which have a wide (typically 1mm) clamping range. I'm aware of the 0.35mm difference --- but I have a lot of 1/4" tooling, and it's going to be a budgetary problem to replace it all w/ 6mm.
If that collet won't work on 1/4" as Mafell indicates where can I source a 1/4" collet for this unit?
Agree that collet sleeves are a bad idea --- the link above is an example of the collet system which Mafell recommends --- I'll also be getting the 1/8" collet, and will also be using 8mm (5/16") tooling of which I have a few endmills.
Worst case is I'll just use 1/8" and 8mm tooling, but I'd really like a way to make use of 1/4" tooling.

Looks like double ended (like 3 dimensional) application- design collet, hence 0.35 difference can be taken of a list of concerns
Okay, the 6mm reducing adapter really is 6mm and does not have the play to fit 1/4" (6.35mm) --- considered using an Amana RB-106 8mm--1/4" reducing bushing, but fortunately a friend is making a reducing adapter as like to the Mafell units as I could measure.
jimmyford: Can anyone mill a corian piece that will fit into the mafell rail for use with the mft3?

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?
