Here is a short video I did this weekend cutting with the P1CC. I had to cut several 1/4 inch strips from a narrow strip of cherry. I wanted to get 3 strips and I had a board that was less than 2 inches to start. The jigsaw performed phenomenally and the cuts were as good as what I get off a track saw or table saw. I was blown away. I welcome comments or feedback.

Thanks, guys! In regard to the camera, I actually shoot with a Canon 5D II and I used a 24-70 L lens. Photography is one of my other hobbies. I usually would shoot video with a couple of bodies, but with this one I just used the one camera. I have read lots of great things about the GoPro cameras and might need to look into them as it might be easier than the traditional SLR approach.
I started to use the Pl with a guide rail. I was cutting 1" 17ply plywood and was getting plumb cuts without the rail but twice had the blade deflect while on the rail. Not sure what happened. Maybe the base wasn't perfectly flat against the rail. Or I tilted unknowingly. Also it's a little tricky cutting to a line with the rail since the blade is offset from the edge. Anyone have any tips on how to line up P1 with rail to be spot on?
The MT55 is a dream in this regard. Spot on accurate everytime. I was plunge cutting the 1" ply without any problem and doubled up to two sheets without any problem. The saw barely clears 2" on the rail. Still had plenty of power. Very effective tool. Sorry went off topic there.
You can use the parallel guide to make guided cuts with the guide rail as well. That way your saw can rest on the material instead of on the rail.
The cunex blade is quite agressive but nevertheless, do you have the transparent anti-splinter guard fitted to your P1cc?
By installing the splinter-guard and using the jigsaw direclty on your material, using the parallel guide in combination with your guiderail as shown in the picture, should prevent most of the tear-out.
Hope this helps you out.

Jonathan and Lincoln, thank you for your answers. lincoln, reducing the stroke indeed reduced the "severeness" of the splinters, but unfortunately not to a desirable level. jonathan, I have the transparent anti-splinter guard fitted. But when using the P1 on the guide rail, the anti-splinter guard cannot do its job while being elevated from the surface. So I think using the parallel guide will be the best option for now. This option is unfortunately less stable than using the P1 directly on the guide rail.
Would be nice if Mafell developed a thicker transparent anti-splinter guard that can be used with the P1 on the guide rail

jimmyford: Can anyone mill a corian piece that will fit into the mafell rail for use with the mft3?

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

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?
