Thanks, for the reply, 7. I just received a set of 5 Progressor blades from Amazon for $13.01 including tax amd shipping! Ironically, these are the same blades that I gave away, brand new, with my Trion. Had just never gotten around to using them, because I didn't enjoy using the Trion. Now, with the P1cc, I'm looking for ways to design curves and holes into my pieces. Can't wait to cut a new splinterguard and try the Progressors.
MT55cc, P1cc, Aerofix F-AFU 130, 3200mm Flex Hose, F1600 - 2X, connector, bag, 48 and 24 toothed blades. Fan of Timberwolf Tools
I am liking how much longer blades last with this saw. With my past jigsaws I remember making a few basic cuts and having a burned blue blade. With the Mafell the blade didn't even go blue while messing around with a 4x4 post.
... For what its worth, Bosch does also make some long blades that are .07 inches thick -- one of them is over 10 inches thick. Look for the blades that end in a "DP" -- stands for precision for parallel cutting. ...
Helped a friend replace his daughters plexy/polycarbonate wheelchair tray over the weekend. He was dreading the project because he had a lot of trouble cutting it last time he did one. He said his jigsaw blade was immediately getting so hot that the material would just melt back together and he would have to cut it again. Long story short he was shocked by the p1cc. We could cut with it and as fast as possible turn the saw off and grab the blade with our bare hands and found the blade wasn't even slightly warm. It felt colder than room temp. The MT55 & P1cc made the project really easy.
Ill get a picture. I used two different blades, both Bosch, both actually for wood. One was the reg "clean for wood" blade and the other was one of the really thin blades for tight radius work. He already took the tray and put it on the chair but I will get a pic soon and post it with the blades.
The cuts we made looked better than the factory edge. On the MT 55 we used a somewhat dull blade that came with the saw on the highest speed.
I am wondering if I am missing something- So they sell the angle base for the Mafell P1cc. So does Festool etc etc. I don't think I have ever tilted a jigsaw. For all varieties of angled cuts I would either use a table saw, miter saw, or track saw. Am I missing something? What would be a reason to cut an angle with a jigsaw??

I don't have the angle base, but a reason I have but a jigsaw at an angle in the past is when doing a scribe to seriously bumpy wall and back bevaling can be advantageous or fitting into a skirting scribe at an angle like in a bay window
I think I'll order the tilting foot for the P1CC. Interesting that as soon as I ask why anyone would tilt a jigsaw I had the need. Hard to explain without a picture but I built a fireplace mantle for a house but made the final cuts with MT55 & P1CC on site. The mantle had to be notched to wrap a bell curve that was framed on the wall and stuck out about 4". I figured it out (not fun) but the tilting foot would have made it easy to cut the mantle around the bullnose drywall corner while on a tilt to wrap the bell curve. I also would have used it to scribe the back as you guys mentioned above.
Also, FYI jalvis, I bought the low angle block plane on your recommendation a while back. It's a great tool.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

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.
