For the corbels I just made a template, marked them out and cut using the w1 cunex blade. The w1 cunex blade is the special blade which is 2 blades laminated together and ground down at the rear , so it looks a bit like a triangle shape in profile. The side with the teeth is about 3.5mm (about 1/8) thick and the rear the blade is about 1.2mm thick the blade is what makes the p1cc so special. No sanding of the corbells has been done all cuts are straight from the jigsaw. With the off cuts that come off I was able to stack them on top of each other put the blade of the square on them and they would be next to no gap. Also when I did them it was a bit of an after thought so I did them in place on the roof not the easiest place to cut them
Those corbels are impressive. They look like they were cut with a band saw. Does anyone know if the P1cc cuts better than other jigsaws with a standard blade? Also I couldn't find a price for the w1 specialty blades. Is it legit to ask cost questions on this forum? I am considering this jigsaw but wondering if it would outperform other jigsaws all around or just with the welded blades and increased power. Looks like it could be the perfect tool for small timber pergolas.
I am located in Utah, Close to Salt Lake City. I am not experienced with forums so don't really know the norms. I am glad you guys have created this site as a place we can share information. Besides several youtube videos there is almost no information on mafell here in the USA. Just the one dealer and they don't work with the tools. It's nice to be able to discuss with others who make a living with these tools.

I'm not going to say its the best jigsaw but it is certainly the best jigsaw I have ever used the w1 blade does give u 100% accuracy but even with just a normal blade I recon that I properly get 98% accuracy. The w1 blade is the only special blade by mafell all the the rest of the blades are just normal jigsaw blades same as you get from other manufacture some of the the corbels where done using standard jigsaw blades w2 which is the same as blades from bosch of festool. I have also used the jigsaw to rip 70mm stud as 1 off with cheap shops own blade as there where nails in the wood and it did the job fine apart from a couple of slight run offs where it had gone through some nails
I was only aware of the Timberwolf Tools site. Looks like there are a lot more mafell tools available in North America than I was aware of. Could be trouble. Thanks for the Link jalvis. I visited your site also...looks like you do similar work to me...a bit of everything. The variety keeps it interesting. Sorry for deviating from the Jigsaw topic briefly.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

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.
