Hope you're ok fidelfs. Try not to sacrifice any limbs for this experiment.
I agree about the usefulness of FOG even though it is annoying that the thread was shut down. The MUF shouldn't be about discrediting Festool. This forum is too promising for that. These tool-brands complement each other well and perhaps if more Festool users realized the quality Mafell options offered the discussions wouldn't be so off topic at times (who offers better service etc..). The more options the better.

There's no prizes for losing a digit the mafell Mt was designed to be used without a riving knife where the festool simply is designed to be used with a riving knife. My attitude towards it is if it is designed to be used with a riving knife use it on your festool and mafell ksp they all have sprung loaded riving knifes so there is no need to take off. I know people do on cheaper saws that don't have, but if something happened I can't see an insurance company paying out if the riving knife that is designed to be there is removed
The MT55 was specifically designed for cabinet makers. One thing a cabinet maker doesn't want is a riving knife marking expensive veneered plywood. Another benefit for cabinet makers is the ability to quickly and easily change the blade and not adjust a riving knife for alignment or change over for blade thickness. This is important since plywood is expensive and a cabinet maker needs to change blades depending on material such as melamine or wood veneer.

I have removed the riving knife (simple operation) on my kss 300 or plunge cuts. No risk of binding when using a rail. The reason being, the kss is a really light saw and the added resistance of the spring when making a plunge I found can throw me off. It's immediately replaced when not doing plunge operations.
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?
