The tilting base will come in handy again. Its amazing how often you use something once its part of the system. Kinda like that new block plane you bought. You find all kinds of applications now that its in your tool bag.

Used the p1cc to make a new window opening in timber kit. In the past I would have used a recripricating saw but the blade would wonder and not cut square. The p1cc worked perfect. Much easier to handle and when I come to the end of the cut on most jigsaws being able to move the base back worked a treat. I will be using the recripricating saw a lot less
I have been pleasantly surprised with the P1cc using regular blades. The way to cut anything very thick is with the orbital action turned all the way up and a regular (non W1 Cunex) blade. I have found that the W1 actually doesn't do very well in 8/4 hardwood- the thickness of the blade is too much in this thick wood for a jigsaws conservative cutting stroke. The good news is that I have had perfect cuts with standard blades from standard retailers- much cheaper & perfect results.
Well initial reaction.....thoroughly impressed. I've yet to be let down by any of my Mafell purchases, they just seem to think of anything I can. Can I extend the arm on the trammel? ya it's simple bar stock, just tap two holes and you're good to go. Can i put the tool back in it's case with the extractor port or chip deflector attached, yes. I know that's a simple thing but even with my trion I hade to muck about with getting everything to fit back in the box....oh ya the trammel/parallel guide fits in the box too. I love the pin options for the trammel as well, either a spike or a serrated plug you fit into a predrilled (8mm if recall) center point. Spike if drilling a hole isn't an option, and just the fact that they did the zero play serrated plug as opposed to a pin that can widen your predrilled hole is cool, could see it doing some muck when you have to take it out though. This is just my first thoughts I cant wait to make this machine sweat.
Some quick photos comparing the base size of the P1cc to that of Festool's trion. P1cc is a lot bigger which IMO is a huge benefit in terms of balancing and controlling the saw. The final picture shows just how deep the plunger goes into the base, there's a huge stroke on this guy.
Great idea on lengthening the bar so it could be a legit radius trammel without creating a lame jig like I posted in the other thread just barely, although my lame one works too I guess. It wouldn't be too hard to have small manageable sections that could be connected together quickly for any given length. Interesting.
congrats on the new addition to your mafell family
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.
