Hey have a few questions about the mafell range of saws tracks.
I have to cut halspan fire door blanks which are 54mm thick high density chipboard. I need a saw and track which will be able to continously produce accurate cuts within a workshop production environment. I like the features of the mt55 but dont think it has the cutting capacity or power required?
The halspan door blanks are either 2135x915 or 2440x1220 and they need to be cut all four sides to produce the final door width. Which track system do I need?

The mt55 deffinatley has the power the only thing it would lack is the depth of cut, to cut on one side you would need to flip the door which doubt you want to do. All the saws operate on the F guide rails there is the choice of either the ksp:65/85 which on the rails will give a depth of 59/79mm on these saws there is two grooves for the guide rails one of which is for 90 degree cuts and the saw blade will be one the splinter guard the other groove is for making angle cuts. When making angle cuts the saw blade on these saws does not cut on the splinter guard. Then the other choice would be the new k85 which has a cutting depth of 88mm off the rail and 82mm on the rails on this saw the saw blade is right on the splinter guard no matter the angle I myself have a ksp 85 for heavier cuts and Woodie has the all new kss80
The MT55cc has the power but I think it's more of a cabinet maker's tool for sheet goods. And it simply lacks your required depth of cut.
Although it might be a bit overkill, I'll give my vote to the new KSS 80 Ec / K 85, but with a higher tooth blade than the standard 32T one. But as wrightwoodwork said, the KSP 65 will do just fine as well. I guess it depends on what else you want to use it for.
If you'd like some more details about the KSS80/K85, check out this video our very own member woodie made:

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?
