One observation I have about the Parf dogs is that if you are cross-cutting 19mm thick material, the guide rail is not raised quite high enough for the body of the TS55R motor (motor housing) to clear the top of the dogs. I had not anticipated this lack of clearance and was puzzled when the saw met resistance and then tilted over cutting into the splinter guard a mm or so (and the wood also). This does appear to limit the length of cut you can achieve on material of this thickness as you would have to start the cut with the motor housing forward of the top of the Parf dog. You could extend the maximum length of cut by plunging the saw into the end of the stock rather than starting with it already plunged. There are of course other solutions such as placing a board under the one to be cut but that would require Parf dogs rather than short dogs to be used for aligning the stock. Alternatively, the board could be rotated through 90 degrees but that may not be convenient for long boards if the MFT is up against a wall and it would mean a shorter length of the board was used for alignment (as there are fewer holes along the short side of the MFT).
I think it would be good to have different heights of Parf dog so that when cutting thinner (but very common) thicknesses of material such as this 19mm mdf, the saw can pass over the dogs. Alternatively, maybe it would be possible to have a shorter Parf dog with an 8mm threaded hole with extensions that can be inserted when required?
