Hi all, can anyone explain the difference between the parallel guide fence and roller edge guide? Other than the distance they overhang the edge of the workpiece and some difference in how wide/narrow they'll let you rip, are there major functional differences? For use with MT55cc.
I have both, the roller one shown in kraftt's picture is really nice for ripping thin stock, or close to the edge, where I can't set up a rail.
I don't use either a ton, but when I've needed them, they're very helpful.
I marked up the parallel one with depth marks so I have a real close idea of plunge point, but it isn't great to fiddle with for beveled cuts. But it saved me from buying their prebuilt one. Search for kraftt's Waffel version for what I mean.
The pre-marked depth guide is a bit of a waste of money to be honest. I bought one, then not long after got the MT55 18v - which came with one, so I now have two. Usually I mark the exact point I want on the side of the saw with pencil - so don't really use either.
This is some info that could be printed on the side of the saw... no need for a bulky clip.
Thanks all. Sounds like the purpose is similar, just some differences in how much clearance you get.
While we're on the subject of the roller guide, what am I supposed to line up the ruler with? e.g. when the roller guide is attached to the left side of the saw, I've tried lining up the "100mm" mark on the roller guide with red line by the thumb rest on the front left of the saw, but the distance from the cheek (if that's the right word) of the roller guide to the saw blade ends up being a couple of centimeters off from 100mm. I didn't see any other marking on the saw that I should try to align it with. Any tips?

I use the roller edge guide all the time on my KSS80 off the rail - works great for narrower rips and you can get much closer to the blade. A plunge saw is not ideally suited for cuts off the rail. Can be done, but I always feel it lacks safety so find other ways.
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?
