Worked out a nice easyway to change the anti splinter guard on the F rails instead of trying to slide the strip along the grooves with fairy liguid. Cut the strip too length turn the rail upside down and pour fairy liquid along both grooves with the bottom groove facing upwards push the bubble part of the rubber strip into the groove then open the rubber strip so the next bubble of the rubber is at the side of the rails then push the bubble into the groove. Will try to do a video and show
New member with a question here. I just got my MT55 and was going through an operation check out of the saw and noticed that in the low variable speed settings (2 and below) that the saw motor pulses and blade rotation does not remain constant. Is this normal? I am going to call David at Timberwolf tomorrow, but wanted to get responses from the group as well.
This is a great forum and I am glad to be a part of it.
I remember being surprised at first that if I stopped pushing the saw through the material the electronics would make adjustments sort of like traction control on a car or something. I didn't notice it only being on settings 2 and below though so likely you are talking about something different. The adjustment I am talking about specifically keeps the blade running at the same speed, sounds like yours adjusts it??
I did notice that the saw speed changes with a load. Just pressing the trigger without cutting anything the saw at the lower speed settings ramps up and down. At some point it sounds like the motor is turning on and off. You are correct the variable speed adjustment should change blade speed, but the blade speed should remain constant. The blade speed speeds up and slows down respective of motor pulsing on and off. I will try and post video if I can figure out how.
My saw did that when I first got it. Its the Electronic Control module for the speed control. Mine was the first to have this issue and Mafell went over time in Germany to figure it out. They solved the problem and Timberwolf had a new module sent to me within a few days. I changed the module out in three minutes. Its really easy to change and has two quick connect wires.
My saw worked fine at full speed so I used it until I got the part.

Thanks for the input everybody. I talked to David from Timberwolf this morning and he told me that this was normal. He explained that the pulsing is due to the saw not having a load on it (meaning that I was not cutting anything). He asked me to check the operation when cutting material and let him know. He also told me that these saws are not only checked in Germany, but are also checked in his shop before shipping to me.
Jalvis, it is good to hear that potentially this situation can be remedied by changing out a part.
Well I knew each saw gets checked before leaving the factory in Germany. But you never know something gets missed. Great to hear Timberwolf checks the tool before shipping. That's some pretty great service.
Thanks for the info Jalvis, another thing learned. Sorry to get you rattled for nothing jaymon5. I'd say run your new toy through it's paces and let us know how it performs for you...

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?
