Thats a great use for that saw. I considered getting that saw in the past but haven't developed enough work to justify.
Is that a common use for your shop and MKS 130? Have you used it for any joinery?
It's an awesome saw. Extremely powerful and handles just as well as the mt55. Quite nimble for its size.
Every project is very unique so I wouldn't quite say this was a common use. We we use the MKS mostly for ripping and cross cutting thick material up to 5" or so (glulams and timber). It also excels at cutting the vee on the top side of valley timbers. I think mafell's youtube channel shows this. Sometimes we use it to cut compound miters on thinner timbers but more often use the ZSX for added capacity. So we use it often and as it suits the work at hand. Yes it's also good for cutting tenons but if the tenons are 90degrees the Z5 is faster. I'll post photos as I come across them.
Here's an example of some work cut with the MKS 130 and the mt55. Sliding dovetail on 6x10 barge rafters. This was to keep them from twisting out of alignment without relying on steel. I know I have a photo showing the tools in use for this particular joint, but can't find it. I'll keep looking.
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?
