I don't want to repeat myself (and cross-post) but wonder if these questions (link) might be better answered here..? I'm also wondering now if I've misunderstood the function of this router adapter... Is it intended solely to drill holes at 32mm spacings (a use I don't know about)? Does it allow the router distance from the guide rail to be adjusted sufficiently to use some larger diameter cutters - I'm thinking particularly of large diameter rebate cutters..? And, yes, I'm completely new to this so please excuse me if that's a dumb question... the other post has detail re what I'm intending using it for. Ian
How do you align the spacing if you wanted to run a pantry? I assume there is a way to calibrate with the smaller rail.
I don't know yet as I haven't gotten that far. I couldn't find anything on doing that. I was hoping to get a pair of the 1600 Rails when I bought the system but they wouldn't ship them so I opted for two 800.
When I get that figured out I'll let you know.
I can tell you that attaching two rails keeps the 32mm spacing. If you could keep the center rail from moving you could possibly leap frog the it and re-attach. Sounds goofy but it might work.
Oh ya baby. This is going to be a great system. The pin is a little tricky as it floats. It sometimes doesn't want to hit the hole in the rail and takes a little wiggle to get it to set.
PERFECT holes with PERFECT spacing. Didn't have a single 5mm pin to try them out! all I have is 7.5mm so it's off to Lee Valley in the morning.
I just hit a piece of 3/4" ply and 3/4" melamine.
This is very interesting!! Of course, within the Mafell ecosystem I suppose the DD40 is the preferred hole drilling tool, but in lieu of that investment this seems like a great workaround.
I recently bought the LR32 setup for my OF1400 as part of a custom wardrobe commission I landed. Not sure if I'll keep the LR32 in the long term, but I figured it would work for this project and can always sell it for close-to-new price if I decide to make the jump up to the DD40 setup...
I really like it so far. I am doing a set of bookshelves and got the system more for the rails then the attachment.
There is a fair amount of play in the base relative to the the rail. It can be minimized by locking down one side and then putting tension on the other. Creating a twist. Not repeatable but it does work.
Unfortunately there is no rail adjustment that can be made and the rail "slide" if plastic. I am going to try and come up with a solution when time allows.
I have done about 100 holes with it and I don't actually think it's an issue except for the fact that it shouldn't do it.
Here's my vid showing the movement, I am pushing pretty hard on it. And the plastic shoe that rides the rail.
The kit also works GREAT for dados. Here's the big router and the results. This is actually more valuable to me then the shelf pins. This was always a PITA to do on the table saw for me. This was very SLICK!
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?
