'Slow' is relative!.. the 'P' is 1000w and spins at 13500rpm, the 'G' 700w and spins at 18000rpm. You can put the smaller bits into the 'P' - but you wouldn't want to be putting the big bits in the 'G'.

Also the P is rated at 40 mm depth of cut while the G is only rated at 37 mm. I'm thinking of getting one. Olso not shure if it should be the G or the P. Since I'm not really working with heavy timber or massive construction work. Where would you use 16 mm dowels?
Does one know if the hight adjustment is the same on both models? The Dominos for example have different stop positions and the 500 can go lower. Also I'd like to know the minimum hight of either machine. Since the G has the option for 3 mm cutters one could use it for sheets below 12 mm thickness. This would be unique to the machine.
3mm dowels?.. I can't think of any time I'd use those - more crafts use!.. I guess the 3mm cutters would be OK for 3mm shelf pins (which I don't use!)
I wasn't sure I'd ever use the 16mm either - but it's was the first dowel I ran out of. I made a couple of deco panels in black matt painted wood with bamboo cane in-fills for a boutique. All the structural joints were 16mm dowels. The DD40P was faultless and so precise. Really sped up the work process.
I don't think you'd regret either. What would you be using it for?

Mhm. So I ordered a P... Thanks for the reply. I'm a hobbyist. So the usage depends on what the machine can do. It started with Loudspeaker projects. So mostly 12 to 21 mm sheets. Since I have some tools I started building some furniture. Very basic up to know but with the opportunity to do more the projectts become more complex.
I think you know what I'm rtying to say
I read about the recommended diameter of a dowel is in the range 2/5 to 3/5 of the thickness of the material. So 5 mm would be finde for 12 mm ply.
This and the fact that CMT offers cutters starting at 4 mm (but no 3 mm). I think in the need I could use this on the P. And I think you are right. If would very seldom need to use a smaller dowel than 5 mm it should be possible on the P. Maybe not as good as with the G-Version but I guess the holes will be drilled. But bigger than 12 mm with the G? I can Imagine that the cutters won't fit physically. At least the base plate of both have different part numbers. Maybe the G has smaller holes so the 14 mm and 16 mm cutters won't fit.
So anyway... I'm lokking forward to get it

Cool. Do you like to share some Pic's on the MUF?
My DD40 Arraived some days ago, today I was using it teh first time. The fence is very nice and seems rugged. Clamping on both sides is really good! I did a very slight adjustment of the window (Just a hair, OK maybe it was a hair missaligned at the first attempt) but it's now bang on. As the connection is when aligning via the pins.
Although I thought to never make a series of holes and did not buy it for this purpose, it was the first thing I did
It's for storage of the clamps used on guide rails, the MFT and so on. Although I don't have enough to fill all the holes. I guess there is use... or room for more clamps
With the 16 mm bits on chipboard there are some chips escaping even with a 35 mm hose and the 35 mm fitting (not the restrictive 27 mm one.
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?
