First post here and I'm considering jumping into the Mafell pool with a DDF40. It will mainly be for putting 5mm adjustable shelf holes in wardrobes and cabinets. I've read every thread here and on FOG and need a bit more input in regards to the accuracy of the DDF40 with and without the guiderails.
Is the DDF accurate enough without the guiderails to put shelf pin holes in 6' tall wardrobe panels?
I've heard the LR32 system is difficult to set up, but it seems like it might be a bit more versatile as I don't build with dowels at the moment. I don't want to turn this into a This vs That type of post, but just hoping for some experience from those that have used it for something similar.
Welcome, honedltd. I've only ever used it with the rail, for shelf holes - 100% accuracy. I've also drilled 32mm center-center hardware holes with it, using the fence and extendable stop arm - again, 100% accuracy. I would have no real concerns with it's accuracy, from my experience - BUT, if all you're going to do with it is drill shelf holes, and not dowel as well, I'd be looking out for a small, used multi borer. A couple of years ago I lucked out and scored a Blum mini-press, in excellent condition for AU$600. (I was in the right place at the right time - they usually go for at least AU$2000 down here on the used market)
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?
