I have been talking to both the British, and American Mafell importers / distributors.
We have been discussing asking Mafell to consider manufacturing a saw with a 210mm cut.
By general consensus it seems we are agreed that saws such as the The MKS 185 cuts at a odd depth and not deep enough to convience most people it's a better choice than the MKS 165.
Generally, no matter which side of the Atlantic we operate, it seems that we more often need to cut
4," 6", or 8" Not 5 1/2" or 7 1/2"
It may be that if enough people ask for a saw that will cut 8" the makers will produce one.
with this in mind I would invite comments and expressions of interest / support that we can forward to the tool manufacturers
