Has anyone used a Mafell roller guide fence for their router?
What are you meant to do with this thing? I've ordered one thinking it should make an easier job of cutting a groove in some rafters (I need to cut a 3mm wide 4mm deep groove along the top length of some 2"x6"s) it's not arrived yet and I'm wondering if I should go for an extra fence guide instead (like wrightwoodwork has for morticing), since I don't have a router table.

I've got one and use it more on curved work or in place of cutters with a bearing. It fits onto the parallel fence which enables you to fine tune the flush or the amount of cut taking where with the ball bearing you don't have that luxury
Dual fences are the traditional trick for lock mortising. The roller acts as something of a scribing tool, at least the Elu/DeWalt one does anyway, although it's action is of course one of actual cutting parallel to an uneven edge rather than merely marking.
3mm is just about the kerf width of most "conventional" saw blades. That is, the blades for most midsize corded saws: cordless saws, less endowed with power, tend to be equipped with narrower kerf blades. Ergo, a single, continuous cut with a fence-riding circular saw would surely be the quickest & easiest means to your desired end?
Ahh you see that's the smart solution to my problem, which is why it didn't occur to me. I'm looking for these 'conventional' 3mm saw blades now for a KSS400 which I do have a parallel fence for. Wish me luck!
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.

alvychippy: It's the board hosts, that are having an idea, of somebody perhaps paying over the odds to acquire the board to administer it.... Obviously hopes are set high, Mafell isn't interested, so it carries on
