Another use I've found for the DD40 is drilling for cabinet hardware. A lot of Euro style hardware is fitted via 5mm dia holes, at multiples of 32mm centres. I've used it for some specialty hinges, hinge plates, and in the pics below, fittings for some Grass lift up flap hardware. It's easy to work to pencil marks, due to the excellent marks on the base/fences, and you can set the sliding fence to whatever your set back is. Set the drilling depth and you're good to go. Beats drilling by hand, in a lot of situations.
Here are the doors fitted. Just need a final sand, then time to poly. The fittings are a bit ugly, on the interior of the cabinet, but they'll be full of books so will disappear/blend in. Great adjustment on these, and easy to install. (These are the doors I was cutting in the Aerofix thread).
Fittings are 'Grass', which is the brand. Even at my 'in the trade' price, they were about $120 per pair. You can certainly use standard concealed hinges, if you use a decent stay. These flap fittings do both jobs, and they're soft close. Timber is recycled Messmate, which was supplied as 80mm x 13mm boards. I thicknessed them down to 4mm, and glued/pressed them onto both sides of a 12mm mdf substrate.
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?
