Well Worth The Outlay

I needed to replace my old Electra Beckum KGS300 that had no NVR, blade guard was hit/miss, but nevertheless smooth and nice and quiet. I saved for quite some time and used the time to research the option, which came down to this saw, the Bosch Glide Mitre (the one with the hinges) and the DeWalt. I wouldn't regard myself as a brand/fashion victim, but don't mind paying for good quality on gear that feels good, easy to use and built to last.

From the moment I got it out of the box, it was true and square. I tested it a few times over the first few days to make sure nothing had slipped, or I'd not tightened something up, but it was all fine. The only thing I need/ed to do was just true up the laser. It's not quite "on the line" enough for me.

For me, it hit the buttons. Light enough to move around the 'shop if needed. Great capacity, although not as big as the DeWalt or Bosch. Smooth, clean cuts. Superb extraction. Easy to use dials/handles/knobs etc and most importantly, it's much quieter than I thought, even when connected to the extractor.

Machinery like this is all a matter of tiny differences in the requirements of the user and all down to taste. I love this saw and would absolutely recommend it.

best mitre saw ive used

as a lot of people say I struggled with the price of this saw and debated it for quite some time before
I bit the bullet and purchased one.in short its a dream to use I find no problem with trigger and accuracy is second to none
im a high end kitchen installer and finish is everything ,the kapex fits the bill perfectly its the smoothest cleanest cutting saw ive ever used
and wouldn't swap it for anything else the price now doesn't even entre my head and would buy another in a heartbeat

Festool kapex120 110. Volt version

Be warned if you buy 110volt version you will need a 5kva transformer to run both the Saw and extractor

Absolutely worth it

My original mitre saw was a Dewalt 718 and very good it was too. BUT, it suffered from the familiar problem of rear overhang and in a space poor workshop, that wasn't on. I pondered long and hard before parting with the eye-watering amount of cash but am very glad I did. There's just nothing wrong with this saw. The accuracy is spot on (yes, I adjusted the lasers to my preference - cutting on the outside edge of the line rather than down the middle) and the ease and convenience of use is excellent. I'd agree that the handle takes a little getting used to but have not found it to be a problem. With the standard, fitted blade, the cut is almost 'finish' smooth. This saw is just part of the black, green and grey army advancing on my workshop!

Nice saw

Very compact little mitresaw. But it seems a lot off assembly. The blue Bosch 10" I have is clear out of the box, lift it up on the support and click-fasten the two fasteners
I have cut at least 10 boards before You get Your Festool together
And by the way, where did You find the terrible music, why not let the guy tell us about his doings
