By "accurate square" I mean a square with which to locate the guide rail on the stock and to check the cut. I use a couple made by Woodpeckers. They work well, but are expensive and hard to come by. Other options are the Lee Valley Carpenters square (though most any framing square can be made square with a punch) or making one from wood. Chris Schwarz, of Lost Art Press gives a good tutorial.
I am unaware of square capable of attaching to the Mafell f rails which will produce cuts good enough for most casework. (I have no experience with the F-WA fence.)
To make accurate, repeatable cross cuts with your track saw, you'll want some kind of a cutting table which integrates a fence with stops and a means to secure a guide rail such that it provides reliable 90* cuts. If you don't want an MFT then perhaps build your own, there are numerous versions on line. If you haven't already seen it, have a look at Ron Paulk's design. A shop made MFT style table combined with some Qwas rail dogs (google them) would be viable.
Cheap shop vacs don't filter the air well enough in IMHO. They do okay at getting the large particles but not the fines. There is a lot of good info here about various models of higher end dust extractors if you're interested.
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?
