Here is some pics of the current work project, of building a timber kit extension. Used the erika with the stop system. I could properly do with getting another 1m extension and a few more drop stops. At the moment I only have the enough for 2m plus the extending rod and a single drop stop. It does work ok. Just that with another 1m extension. I would be able to set one stop at the stud height, another stop at the cripple stud height and other at the dwang size. Plus maybe another 2 drop stops that I could move about to random sizes for the likes of lintels and short stud below or above windows etc. The thinking is that for the stops that are a set size I can just leave them set then if I need to strip down and set up for the next day all sizes will be the same as was previously set up for.

At the moment they are braced and solid. The bottom of the old roof will get stripped to expose the wall plate. Then the roof joists will extend fro the front of the kit back to the existing wall plate tieing the building all in and making it solid

That's ok. The legs are fairly solid. They are actually fairly hear for thier size made of steel, not of aluminium. The top 200mm approximately can be extended up or down about 150mm to allow for uneven ground. Like where it was set up. The only thing is you have to make sure to tighten really good. I was able to place a 225x50 timber on the stand with no issues. When using the stand as how I had it set up it is recommended to have a leg every 1m. The couple of roller stands that I have tend to problematic than the extension fence. The problem is they don't come straight up like the legs on the stand. If the rollers aren't perfectly parralel with the saw blade it causes the material to move away from the fence. Then if you go to push material across the roller it tends to make them tip. Where on the extension if I needed to move the material back and fourth or into the fence. It was far more stable

I really like the saw and was great with the extension fence and stops for cutting the studs to size. The set up isn't 100% perfect yet it's getting thier. I could when I'm feeling like throwing some money about is getting an extra 1m and maybe a few more drop stops so I can have 1 set for the studs another for the cripple studs. Then another for the timber lintels. Compared to proper traditional timber framing it's fairly basic just a case of putting your door and window openings in the right place. Then the rest of studs go at either 600 centers or 400 centers. The outside has coat of 9mm osb sheeting which gives the frame it's rigidity then has building paper usually stapled on with white banding which also act as stud markers for the brickies between the studs is insulated and vapour control layer is applied. The service used to go in amongst the insulation now it is now being put on the room side of the vapour barrier in a service chanel. Generally these layers are stapled on. When I was at ligna thier was a company called siga which specialises in this sort of thing and they use special sticky tapes at the windows they get taped which provides your window sealant instead of mastic and has a life expectancy of 60 years where mastic shrinks and drys out and cam fail after 10-15 years or need redoing. I think in america you would call it stick form. Timber framing is done more by people doing barn conversions I would love a shot of proper timber framing.
By the way, is that your JCB excavator in the background? I've operated a few excavators over the years, but, being a farm boy, I was taught to operate a backhoe. I have been in many situations, nevertheless, where a swinging house would've been a Godsend -- especially when digging on slopes.
Seek advice from an electrical expert prior to modifying anything electrical in nature.
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?
