Nothing specific in mind and in the past I've just clamped a straight edge down to work from, Anything from rebating to cutting glue joints in pieces its difficult to run a bearing on the problem with this is if the router gets hung up on something it has a tendency to pull away from the straight edge, With the design of the FSN-OFA this isn't possible and i feel Festools system is somewhere in between.
It's something i could probably live without but when I'm spending as much as i will be on tools I shouldn't have to compromise.
I feel as if buying the 2200 is almost like buying 2 routers a big one and a small one!
From my wish-list the only tool i am 100% set on is the MT55 and everything else is up for debate
A good friend of mine has one and i completely agree, The lack of cross compatibility through there entire range infuriates me though! I'm sure i will find a solution that works for me!
I'm just so indecisive and thought I had finally found something that would work for me with the 2200 and the FSN-OFA!
Think i might pop into the Festool dealer tomorrow and see if he will match the online price because i know i will not be disappointed and when the need for use with a rail arises i can re-evaluate based on the job at hand or i will never get anything ordered!
Actually, what part of the OF 2200 (Subbase vs actual metal base) are you measuring? You might have up to 197mm if you're measuring closer to the top of the FSN OFA adapter plate (The metallic part is tapered on one half of the FSN OFA, that's why I give out a range from eying the taper).
If you're really insistent on going the OF2200 route and you're really willing to lose some depth (Like a half inch's worth or so) you could stick on a really, really thick sub base...
If you want the OF 2200+FSN-OFA option at any cost, that and a quick change router chuck might just get you some of your plunge depth back and let you mount the OF 2200.
I recommend looking at the FSN OFA adapter and OF 2200 in person, since I only have the adapter.

The phenolic pad on the bottom is based on a 198 mm circle with two pieces cut off.
Was what the guy said on FOG
Widest part of the circle I'm guessing might have to ring Axminster tomorrow just realized they have both in stock
Bosch and Festool dealers are 2 different places would be a case of buying the base to go and see if it fits and good chance neither of my local dealers will have either in stock! One of the many downsides of a small island.

I'm a picture guy so I went and took some pictures.
I went and did some measurements and had a closer look at the FSN OFA. you have 194mm for sure and then half of the guide tapers out. (or up and out) It only has a ridge on one side. The other side is flat.
Anywho, how much modification do you want to do to the FSN OFA base? I don't see why you couldn't just drill your own mounting holes and open up the hole that the bit goes through. We are only talking a about a 10mm offset here. For dado and shelf pins you wouldn't even have to open of the hole. It would only be for large diameter bits.
Or for that matter take the whole FSN OFA base plate off and make your own to accommodate the OF 2200. I think that could be done easily enough as well. Just remove the silver part (by removing these screw) and build your own?? I have no idea if that would work, but it's def a possibility.
jimmyford: Can anyone mill a corian piece that will fit into the mafell rail for use with the mft3?

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

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?
