holmz said :Since I do not need to do this anytime soon I will probably just do a timber framed house model and if I end up doing a house maybe I'll spring for the $ Mafell job, or use a Makita or Hitachi option, or... <¿Scratching the Chin?>
Have you changed your mind about learning the TF craft, Holmz?
I am thinking rather than buy a big saw, or buy a saw that fits a Prazi and slots into the Bosch rail, I can just cut what I can with the Mt55 and then hand saw the rest. The other work with the mallet & chisel I will go for.
Maybe for a mortice I will Forstner bit the bulk out??? I dunno... The Amazon books are en route so I am in a bit of holding pattern.
Plus awaiting the mallet weight and length
And on top of that the Mrs needs a wall put up, so I went onto FOG put out a call for Answers to Questions. We talked to a "handyman" today and he said, you know what to do... But the Mrs is happy with the plan to have me give him the drawings and collect the materials and be his offsider.
So I will be flat out for a couple of weeks... The fellow seems good, so I think we will knock up the wall pretty quick.
Don't be over-concerned about a big saw, Holmz. I was remarking on the subject because we mill heavy construction timbers and, therefore, we need to make a lot of end cuts. At the moment, I keep an MS200T at the mill site for end cuts, but I'd certainly prefer mounting one of our gas saws to that base/bracket/fence [shown in the original post to this thread] -- and make an accurate right-angle cut the first time around.
You, on the other hand, are just starting out. Right now, you should be getting those books in, learning about traditional hand tools and, later, worry about the power tools used for timber framing (TF). If you do some reading and get the hand tools we discussed, you can start on a novice project like the trestle ponies I wrote about.
GhostFist seems to like instructive TF threads, so I might just gather some photos and start a "starter project" thread for those who might want to experiment with the TF craft.
Don't be over-concerned about a big saw, Holmz. ... Good luck with Mrs. Holmz and the Handyman.
I am comfortable with the handyman...
I have a background in science. Her last room was diabolical for noise and sound escaping. I got a couple of books on acoustics and recording studios and treated the room to get it to an acceptable level. The new room has no waiting room wall, so I prefer to do it right from the beginning. She doesn't want to spend money on it, so there is some constructive conflict, but the process usually is not that fun in-situ.
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?
