uk and rest of europe runs on 50hz, even today I fixed wall socket where state suitable for 50/60hz. so happy shopping?
It's not the socket that you worry about, it's the device you plug into it. Many things aren't happy when they don't get the voltage/frequency they were designed for. In the case of 50hz devices running on 60hz, the motor will run faster, but the cooling can actually be better. It depends on the motor and the load. I've read if the voltage is increase/decreased in proportion to frequency, it's okay to increase(or decrease). Ghostfist reports that it works for his MT55, so the cuprex motors may not be so picky.
Having said all that: I see they are often listed as 'universal' motors. Maybe that means that it can run on either 50 or 60. Here's an LO65 that they say is 50/60hz. I haven't been able to find a listing like that from Mafell or anything that looks like an "authorized" reseller.
Personally, I think I'd pay the 20% more and buy a new one from Timberwolf. I say 20%, because that's the best I saw after a quick search. With Ghostfix's experience and 40% or better discount, I may be tempted. Well, if we could verify that's what 'Universal' motor means, it's not really a problem.

Most universal motors are made for 50 hz/60 hz. I think that induction motors is where you can run into issues with 50 hz on 60 hz power -- they will run fast and hot and potentially this lessons the service life. Most universal motors I have seen are dual rated.
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?
