Timberwolf Tools
« on: April 16, 2018, 10:39 AM »
I see that they are 10 minutes from my house in Chicago, I thought they were based on the East Coast in the past?.  By appointment only, so if I never make time to see them , I will dutifully NOT risk spending money on Mafell tools.... [wink]

They still have their east coast presence, however, they opened a second distribution center in IL about 12-18 months ago, probably to decrease shipping times to everywhere west of the Miss.

Ya, I finally pulled the pin last spring.  [not worthy] [not worthy]...Mafell

I believe the Mafell track saw works on Festool rails, however the Mafell jigsaw does not. [sad]  [sad] Then again that's the justification to pick up the Mafell Aerofix vacuum rail.  [big grin]

Festool saws do not work on Mafell rails, but the Mafell MT55cc does work on Festool rails. I have an MF26cc (groove cutter) and I have never flipped it over to see if it has the slots for Festool rails. I will assume it does since the saws have are very similar. I would guess that some of the other saws would work as well.

Talked to them earlier today.  Call before you go.  They have a few of their saws on display.  Not really a showroom.  Of course in IL you pay IL sales tax but can forego shipping if you pick them up.

No Erika's on display.

Not to tempt you even more, but they are starting to sell the cordless saws as well.    Currently they only have the "Bare" MT55, but expect to have the set (with two batteries and charger), in stock within 4 weeks.  Up until now, people have been ordering the cordless tools from England (via Ebay), but Timberwolf's prices are slightly lower, particularly shipping.

If you buy a Mafell saw then you'll want the Mafell tracks, imo. They are very well refined. In fact, I sold off all my Festool tracks. Imo, once you've used Mafell tracks you never go back.

I agree - Mafell is great for the tools I have from them. I still like things about the FT tracks like the green plastic to help reduce friction on the saw base, but other than that, the Mafell are easy to join, machined dead flat and square on the edge, easy to replace anti-splinter guard and in my opinion, and most importantly, you can clamp close to the cutting edge make narrow rips easier than FT guide rails.

The P1CC is game changing. I think I am guilty getting some folks here to try Mafell, but it is one of those things that once you try, you smile every time you get to use the tool, or at least I do. Of course, I still smile when I use many of my FT tools too...so take that for what it is worth.

Seriously - you cannot go wrong and TW is a top notch dealer who stands behind what they sell.

Hey @McNally Family do you know what the full MT 55 18v kit will sell for?

I also noticed that the MT 55 is 230 volt only, is that correct?

To anyone that has experience with the MT 55 cc and/or MT 55 18, how do they compare to each other?

How do they compare to the TS 55 and TSC 55 saws?

Personally, I think my TSC 55 has more power than my TS 55. It'd be nice if this is also the same with Mafell.

The price with two batteries and charger is listed on the pull down menu under "version":

https://www.timberwolftools.com/mafell-mt55-18m-bl-cordless-plunge-track-saw

The corded version is listed on the brochure as being 230v, but under the Timberwolf description, it lists it as 120v

Thanks McNally for the info. Ya, I got the 230 volt info off of the brochure. Nice to know that it’s 120 volt.  [big grin]

So...$400 for 2 batteries and a charger, that’s an 👁 opener.

I have the Bosch version of the MT55- imported it from Amazon UK.  Same motor.  Looks like Bosch is bringing that saw stateside in the fall.  I paid less than half of what the Mafell one sells for.  I’ve owned both the TS55 and 75 and the Bosch/Mafell seems every bit as powerful as the 75 in use.  I’ve been ripping 1.5 inch butcher block all week and it just cruises right through.  Blades are a lot cheaper than Festool...

However, it does come standard with the dust bag, position indicator, and parallel guide fence, all of which you would pay extra for with the corded version.

Are you talking about the corded version, or the battery powered saw?

I'm curious too. Is this a creditable source or more speculation.  My TS55 is 12 years old, its still serviceable but I'm starting to thing about a new one.  The Bosch sounds pretty good to me.
