The point about being disposable wasn't that they couldn't be sharpened, but that someone representing Mayfell, thought users would buy new rather than sharpen. This is fine if the blade costs £15 but not if the thing costs £50 in my book. Maybe this reflects on the quality of the blade that we're getting?
I've now tried it out with the re-re-ground blades and it seems fine in green oak at full depth cut. Using it free-hand It wouldn't move when a bit of twist bound the saw-plate in the kerf. Still don't know what my earlier problem was, unless the rails were rocking and that caused binding.
I'm a bit late reading this thread, but happened to notice it and it seems as good a place as any to ask if anyone knows of a good saw blade sharpener in the UK (for me, it would be for 48t 162mm blades, for an MT55cc).
A firm that reliably sharpens to the same geometry as the original, rather than choosing a geometry they feel it should be.
I can find plenty of firms on the internet, but, never having had any blades sharpened by any of them, I have no way of knowing who does a good job and without altering the geometry.

Most sharpening shops have adjustable settings for face & hook angles. Once setup, each tooth gets the same treatment; first one side, then the other. Any reputable Saw doctor can achieve as good as OEM results & geometry.
If in doubt, write your required settings (hook, face & rake angles) from the mnf'rs website, their catalogue or sawblade packaging onto the Saw plate with a contrasting texta pen. Don't assume the doctor can guess the appropriate tooth geometry. This allows the shop to preset their diamond sharpening disc to the appropriate setting/s.
If anything, smaller blades with higher tooth counts tend to be expensive to doctor. Most Saw shops charge by the tooth.
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?
