So incredibly jealous of you right now. as for the rail connector, no fidgeting at all! No special tools required, heck, you can use a quarter or your keys without worry of damaging the connector. A quarter turn on each of the four tensioning screws and you're done, Dead straight! I want juicy pics and vid of this tool porn!
There are a lot of cool features on that saw that interest me. 60° bevel cuts, the cool parallel fence that goes under the saw base, plunge tilt and lock functions look super smooth. Its dreamy, let's put it that way.
The KSP 85 which is the one currently available is different than the New K 85, which this thread is mentioning.
The KSP 85 can work on the F style Mafell rails but its like the KSS 300. When beveling it pivots at a single point therefore any angle cuts other than 90 degrees will cut deeper into the guide strip.
The New K 85 has a sliding pivot like the MT55 which means that when beveling the saw blade edge is always directly on the Guide strip edge.
The dust collection will not be as good as a plunge saw since the blade isnt entirely covered, but this allows other positive options. Mainly that you can see the blade in relation to the cutting surface for non-guide rail use. Although I think the collection would be similar to a plunge saw with the 36 mm hose.
Also the Plunge mechanism isn't as easy to use as a plunge saw which Matt can confirm from the KSS 300. It takes some getting use to.
The KSP model also comes in a 65 and 85 model.
From what I can tell the K 85 is the closest to the Festool TS 75 but more versatile since its also well suited off a guide rail and has a deeper cut.
I know this is an older thread but thought I would chime in. I've had the KSP85 for several years and it's an awesome saw. To clear up the bevel issue: it can definitely cut bevels on the f track without cutting deeper into the rubber strip as there are two slots in the saw base, one for 90 degrees and the other for angles up to 60 degrees.
Guest: 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?
