Hi all, Enjoying my P1CC so far. Does all it is supposed to do etc.
After a short time of use, it seems to get VERY hot. True, my previous was a top handle, but it gets hot enough to bother me. Not a nice toasty warm.
The cuts I was making were not really very hard, and it heated up fairly quick. Is this normal for this type of motor? Should I be worried? This is the 240v version being used in Europe, if that makes a diff.
That's interesting, do you run your P1cc with a vacuum? I have the North American 110V version but I find that running at speed 6 produces heat in the head but not so much the motor but I run my P1cc with dust collection. After turning the P1cc off I find that there's significant airflow being pulled through the intake vents for the motor when the vacuum is running. At worst the housing around the motor gets a little warm but the head feels significantly warmer than the area around the motor.

Mine gets warm after extended use. Your hands are where the motor is and I think it is normal for these types of barrel grip machines. I have four different BG jigsaws and they all get warm with use. It has never been hot enough to be uncomfortable, though...I would say a more "nice toasty warm".
Yeah it shouldn't heat up to the point the grip is uncomfortable to hold. I actually find that the motor can actually be significantly cooler than the head if I'm taking fairly light cuts at speed 6 with a vacuum attached.
I think you guys might have something wrong with your 220V models. I remember seeing a very lengthy comment on the German P1cc video on Mafell's channel and the guy who posted it complained of significant heat issues. He later had a followup comment:
Winfried Gorny3 months ago My job became really hard. So much work, that I forgot to tell: Two technicians from Mafell visited me at the end of last year. They had look at how I work, and gave me to understand that my old Mafell could have had a mistake, because in their opinion the saw is indeed hot but not as hot that you must put it out of your hand, as I told. The fact was - after repair the saw never got as hot as before! But they gave me a second saw for free - to make it possible to change saws after a while. And they told me that I can take the second saw, even when I am thinking a change will not be necessary! Whow thumbs up for Mafell. Again I have to say: The best tool for my behaviour! - And the service - could not be better! - Thanks, Mafell! :-)
For a while I was wondering what people were talking about because I did not notice the P1 getting hot at all. After I used it to make the cut out for a kitchen sink in particle board (40 mm or so thickness) I knew it. Towards the end the gearbox was too hot to grab.
So obviously before I used it not long enough to get this hot. I used an extractor but it was summer and 30 °C or alike.
It does not get this much use, mostly only quick short tasks. So I was thinking maybe the bearings have to run in and after some use the issue is not that bad anymore.
I noticed this on routers. With a new router the bearing shield got also very hot. After some use not so much.
So zaax, how is it now? Or anyone having the machine and maybe noticed soch a behaviour.
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?
