Hello everybody my fist post on this site, I have bought a MT55 with two 1600mm guide rails The Mafel inductions are a bit vague to say the least and there web site didn't seem to offer much help, unless I'm looking in the wrong places. My first question is trimming the new guide rails how? On the festool site it says set saw to slow and overhang to trim but It seems there is conflicting advises from them as it also says high speed to trim, also others have said do on sacrificial sheet of board, some even suggested joining the two stops before trimming, any advise eagerly awaited please. My second is in relation to track lengths I was thinking of cutting one track down to 1100mm giving me 2.7M to cut 8x4 sheets more easy in confined garage workshop, Would leave me a 500mm length might come in useful. Thanks Paul

When you make your first cut of the anti splinter strip, set the the rail on a sacrificial sheet and set the depth at 5mm. I wouldnt worry about speed. I have the kss 400 which has no variable speed and the splinter strip gets cut perfectly fine. You can cut the rails in fact I know people who have for the very same reason
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?
