At the weekend I'll try to do a vid explaining the set up and different ways of setting up. Also maybe shod do a vid of setting up the stop rail system. The stop rail system is good as long as all cuts are the same angle 90. Or whatever angle you set the first on at. If changing the angle every time best with the mfa fence or universal fence with a set rollers I think I might invest in the rollers with the bearings

here is a vid using the lo65 and the router extension kit on the erika to make rebates in 400mm wide boards. What I have noticed is that when doing rebates where the dust extraction is from the top as well it works really good. Where making grooves from bellow don't work as good

Picked up a second guide fence for the router to aid with making mortise joints. When I have a couple of framed linned and braced doors sometime next year. Also thinking of getting the guide rail for the router funds allow to aid with the tenons. Not sure of the exact size other than they are approximate 1.4m x 2.3m

Still to use. I have a couple of barn doors to make in the spring. So will be perfect for that I recon. Thinking of getting spiral router bits to cut out the mortises. Also plan to maybe get the 1m guide rail for the router, to aid aid with cutting the tenons. The mf26 would be nice just a little bit to much money the now
This is crazy. $3000!!!! Jig making is an essential part of being a good carpenter/ joiner. You could make a jig for this thats easily good enough to get the job done in a couple of hours then chuck it when the jobs done. Also if you damage it by accident with the router cutter. you can chuck it and make another one.
But if you make it, you can save yourself $3000 minus a couple of hours to make one up. Then you can take your wife on a skiing trip and still have a some cash left over. I just think its shame people paying so much for jigs when people used to take pride in building their own. Also its a waste of money. I remember working with two carpenters who had just bought the trend hinge jig, within the first few hours of buying it they had caught the router cutter on the aluminium jig. easily done and rendered it useless. I think they're about £120, you'd be pretty gutted if you'd spent $3000 and did the same thing. Save up a bit more and buy a Makita 5500s or similar tennoner. That would really save some time.
The OF1010 is 13.1 pounds, or almost 6-kg. It is $435 US ($819 AU), and it only does 1/4 and 8-mm bits. As I need 220v the US price is not too important, so it is $819 AUD.
The Mafell LO 50 seems to be discontinued?? Dictum shows it at 479 Euro or without VAT at 445 US$ (445 AUD) plus shipping (~100?) ~= $550 AUD. It does 1/4 and 8-mm (6 and 8 mm) At 2.7 kg is 1/2 the weight of the the OF1010 and still is 1000W.
On the other hand the MaFell LO 65 Ec is 5.7 kg, and is 2.6kW, and does 6-mm through 1/2". It is 882 $US, so 1127 Au, plus the 1000 shipping= 1227, plus the 20% GST and duty goes to $1472 AUD.
I guess I talked just myself into the LO 50 over the OF1010 on cost and weight.
The LO 50 seems to be discontinued. Any further insights? Sounds like every one is happy (?)
Alternatively I could just haul the dry assembled stuff to the local cabinet shop and pay them a couple hundred to do the routing? And another stack to do driling on the shilf peices.
Guest: 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?
