Silly question do you not have a spare rail.you could give the guy to mess about with the rail. I take it you thinking of making dogs that slide into the rail. Good idea in principal I think, but he only problem I can think of is that two different metals can potentially expand or contact at different rates with atmospheric pressures. Just my thinking
It might be easier to take a Mafell clamp in to be used as a template. They're $55.30 for a pair, so less money than a rail and less likely to get damaged if you have to leave one with the machinist.
I took some measurements of a rail and a clamp this morning, but I was using dial caliper's. I would say I'm definitely accurate to 100th of an inch and should be really close at 1000th. The clamp was easier to measure so those should be spot on.

I have Mafell guide rails, but I am making an MFTC mobile workbench and I'm trying to choose an aluminium T-slot section, to go around the perimiter of the MFT-style worktop, that will accomodate not only Mafell/Bosch clamps, but also Festool-compatible clamps.
Therefore, can anyone tell me ACCURATE dimensions of the T-slot on Festool products, necessary to accomodate Festool clamps?
...believe me, I hunted Google images before I posted the above question, but I continued to hunt, and I was eventually rewarded with the information I sought (thankyou, Forrest Anderson), so I'll post it here, for the benefit of others who might need it:
I should add that I am wondering if the above drawing might be slightly mistaken - I was under the impression that the 1.5mm x 7.3mm ridge would be facing outwards (i.e. running within the opening of the T-slot, rather that oriented 180 degrees towards the deepest part of the T-slot).
Can anyone confirm?
Here is why I am wondering about this:
(and I am also looking at my Mafell clamps, which have a similar ridge that definitely does face outwards (i.e. running within the opening of the T-slot):

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?
