Took delivery of these fixings for a couple of cupboards and a narrow wall unit I got the knapp 8mm quick set dowels, 8mm knapp dowels and the knapp pu+ glue. The reason I got the 8mm quick set over the 5mm quick set is I can simply use the same size bit for everything . The 8mm dowels where chosen simply because they are they same diameter . I chose the pu+ glue as it expends a little bit yet not excessively like gorrilla glue filling any slight voids like the little holes in the sides of the knapp dowels. Then sets rock hard. Also I have found its performance the best and most reliable of the glues I used when I made the racking for the van. The standard pva joints I find a couple haven't held, I find gorilla glue expands too much for my liking and too much mess the joints where I used the pu+ adhesive are all still as good as when first done. Another reason I choose the quick set dowels, instead of only the dowels is to save on clamps , which I simply don't have at this moment in time. Obviously a future investment . Here is some pics I will do a vid when I get the materials. Granted the fixings can't be taken apart

Yep that's it. The black part is a bit like a plastic wall plug with the end of it shaped for a ball to lock in. The metal part is more or less the same as a cam bolt bolt. For the metal part you drill an 8mm hole 8mm deep and for the plastic plug, you drill an 8mm hole 32mm deep. Screw the metal conector in and knock the plastic plug in the other hole then knock the parts together. Once together they ain't coming apart unless you are deliberately try to break the joint. On the instructions it told you to drill the holes 7.5 and 31mm deep when I did I found they didn't pull up 100% tight. Leaving about a mill and half gap. When I increased the hole depth just slightly it sorted the problem and locked it tight. For the plastic dowels you are meant to drill an 8mm hole 13mm and 26mm deep. I've still to try the quick set and dowel together so need to fry that combination together on a test piece and glue it as well. Basically once I've built the unit I want it to be never coming apart
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?
