Hello all, first post on here, been using my new 300 alot since I got it, amazing wee saw, had the 400 for a short while but realised i had made a misktake so sold and got the 300 and couldnt be happier with it. It is very small and light and powerfull and precise and the cross cut track is a thing of beauty. For awkward cuts it is so much easier to use than a large plunge saw and the accuracy is spot on. Just sold my ts55r and have a mt55 on the way, the rails are in a different league because of the ease of joining and they are a good bit narrower than FT rails which I find much more convenient for many different cuts and they are also a little bit more accurate with better quality splinter guard. The ts55 was a game changer for me and many others but the kss and mt55 are better still, makes tricky precise work a joy.

Hi guys thinking of importing one from Germany. They have a 230v which will work in the uk which I'm considering, but would rather have a 110 for obvious reasons. They do have 110, which is a little more expensive. If I chop the plug off and put one compatable with 110 site transformer, will it work? I know the MHz is compatable, so no problems there. Any ideas? Will it work?

Thanks for that. I guess if the voltage is right as well as the MHz, it should be ok. I might give it ago. theres about £100 difference between 230 and 110. Here in the uk they would be the same price! i have a choice, either go for the 110 and use it everywhere or get the 230 and spend some of the savings on some blades. I guess it's down to how I where I will mainly use it, like I said earlier, with 99% of my work accessible to 230 supply, I'm leaning in that direction.

I think your probably right. I remember now, when I worked on the Cutty Sark restoration, it was a no no. technically, you get the same output, but they just didn't allow it. So I guess that's the stance most sites would take.
Today I used the KSS 300 on the full Mafell rails to rip some 3/4 mdf. Im so impressed by the dust collection and power of this saw. Then I needed it to cut 3/4" off the bottom of some tower cabinets thats are 24"x24". It's so light and easy to use without the rail attached that you can easily hold it square even when the wide portion of the base is hanging off your workpiece . I've hit a few staples while cutting and was wondering what the blade options are beyond the Mafell ones?
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?
