Strange, like Ghostfist, I have never run my saw on setting 1. After watching the video above it is obviously abnormal. So I just went out in my shop and checked mine on setting 1 and it does the exact same thing. Running it through material doesn't improve the situation. It almost stalls out completely at times.
So Jalvis- just confirming yours did the exact same thing and you got a basic part?? Looks like I need to call David too.
This issue would be an easy one to miss during a basic inspection. I have had my saw for a while and never noticed. I likely only turned it to low then right back up to see the range quickly.
i hated to start my introduction into the forum with a problem, but it is what it is. I ventured into the shop this evening to find out if the problem went away when cutting material (underload). I am sorry to say the I can confirm 7's findings and it appears that the saw is not functioning properly. Not only did almost stall, but when the speed ramped up it started to kick-back. This issue is also present in speed setting 2 and slightly at 3. I will discuss this with David (Timberwolf) tomorrow. I will bring up Jalvis's problem and hope this solution is offered and will fix the situation.
I look forward to posting comments of a positive nature once this gets resolved.
I will mainly use this saw for cabinet and furniture making where this will probably not be an issue. Having said that, I also plan on using it for cutting lexan for making jigs, and whatever material I come across. I am sure that we have all had to cut that material that gums up or chips up on our traditions cutting devices (miter saw, table saw, circular saw), i was hoping that this would be a viable solution.
Jaymon5- Mine is identical...through setting 3. half way through setting 3 it does go away when cutting material as David mentions but not on settings 1 &2. On the low settings it is quite erratic. I'll be calling Timberwolf also.
I have never needed those low settings but can picture cutting something at some random time that will be better on the low settings. Mostly the perfect tool just needs to be perfect. I feel cheated on haha.
Thanks for the confirmation 7. I spoke to David at length today about this. He assures me that this is normal, and stands behind the product. In an effort to make me feel better he did offer to send over a control board. I plan on testing this saw further this weekend and will come to a conclusion regarding if this is a problem for me or not.
The irony is that I choose this saw over the competition for several reasons, one of which was the power when cutting through hardwoods. Who knew that I would have concerns at the lower speed and power settings.
Regardless of the outcome, I feel that David at Timberwolf tools is a solid person to deal with and will buy from him again. He believes in the product he sells and his customer service if of the highest standard.
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?
