Route-like height turret with presets for most common thicknesseses. Also note the etchings on the steel bar above for easy non-standard thicknesses.

Additional thickness stops
Displayed here are 6, 8, 10 & 12mm dowels next to a bench dog and a pencil to indicate the size. It goes all the way up to 16mmx80mm. Those are some serious dowels, the size of an an index finger. There's little you can't join with those.
A teaser of the upcoming how-to tutorial I'm writing on how to easily adapt your Mafell tools to Festool plug-it power cords without voiding your warranty.

It's no problem for me to get my hands on 110v pigtails, but I'm not sure how much the shipping costs to the US/Canada will be. Also be aware I have to import these from the UK myself.
If there's a real interest, send me a private message how many you want. I'll then look up how much it'll cost to ship. There's a real possibility you might be a lot cheaper off ordering from a UK dealer directly yourself, but I'll give it a look anyway, if needed.

I might be wrong, but I think Festool USA does't allow other festool dealers (overseas) to export to uSA.
Recently was a posting in Festoolownersgrop from a guy stationed in Germany and he offered to bring some pig tails. One day he got a message from Festool that they won't be able to sell him the pig tails. They also said that Festool will stop selling those to any country because some California law.
I know the pigtails are made mostly for UK market, but why a California law will prevent selling it to other countries?
As long as Jonathan doesn't place an order for 100 of these it shouldn't throw up any red flags with Festool. I'm guessing the interest was pretty high on the FOG and since that forum is owned and operated by Festool they decided to shut the purchase down.

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?
