Now this is what I want to use one of these routers fro, the Arunda Dovetail Timber frame jig. Anyone every used one? how easy is it? Do you need to use the Mafell router for it or will other 3.5 hp routers work (mainly because the mafell router is 230v).
I am finalizing drawings for my house to build and would like to use this for part of the structure that will be exposed. Any more info would be great to have.
Time is a big Factor in determining whether the Arunda jig is a good choice. This tool could save a lot of time. Its also cheaper than the Mortiser, Bandsaw, or Beam Chainsaw. A Mortiser and Beam Saw will be over $10K.
I would be talking to some Timber Frame builders before jumping on the system. It might be cheaper to Prep all your stock and then have a Good Timber Framer spend a few days helping you with the joinery.
Checking out this site the Logan tool looks very nice. Only thing I don't like is the screwing the jig to the beam. But purusing the website I came across this www.timbertools.com/Products/Accessories-voltage-regulator.html A voltage regulator. Not a bad cost and we can run the 230 volt tools by just plugging in 120 to it.
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
