Holmz, in my above warning about the speed was not a call to not use the grinder, just be aware it eats faster due to its higher rotational speed. I've used my 4 1/2" grinder to cope, it works; its dusty. The RAS has benefits, but I too would not buy it just for coping. The Collins works well, another option to how to accomplish a goal.
When you try the grinder or or Ras , you won't go back . Trust me. The nice thing about the Ras over a grinder , it had dust collection capability. I use it on full speed with a 40 or 60 grit disc. No more tedious coping. When you see how tight you can make them , it's actually fun:)
As a follow up to the thread: I did get the RAS 115 and it did a great job for coping and scribing. It all went really smooth and I am thankful for the suggestion.
I even got a Collins Coping foot for the Metabo STA 18LTX but when I needed it to do a coping cut I realized I never put it in the systainer... ...arrrrghh. Went well without it but I can definitely say that the Coping Foot would have helped. Now the Coping foot is in the Systainer with the Metabo jigsaw but I haven't any coping cuts coming up that I know of. Typical.
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.
