Compact, lightweight (21.5kg), but with a massive bite that's the new Festool mitre saw Kapex KS 120. In common with the Festool ethos this machine is built for the professional who demands quality and accuracy without compromise. Festool have taken the concept of the slide compound mitre saw and redesigned it into a compact, portable machine with masses of well thought out features to enhance ease and accuracy of work. The main casting provides a firm foundation to support the twin bars which the saw unit travels on and give the saw its supreme accuracy and solid feel in operation. The Machine is supplied with a 60 tooth blade (2.5mm kerf), adjustable bevel and work clamp.

declining servicealthough all tools break down, the reason we spend £1000 on this saw, or any other festool product, was the after sales service. Festool advertise a 48 hr turn around on repairs, recently the motor on my 2 year old kapex burned out, no problem it will be up and running again in a couple of days, upon ringing Festool they inform me that the saw will be picked up 4 days later then turned around within the 48 hrs as long as they have the parts in stock, or it could be another week or so. not the sort of thing you want to hear after spending your hard earned on the assumption that this will keep you working.

Interesting sawI have my kapex for about 6 months now. It is very precise, I like the laser, the handle is ok but if you have to make more than a few cuts it becomes uneasy to operate. I noticed that the motor becomes worm and hot preaty fast, but I noticed this with my other Festool tools to. I do not know if it is normal or not.

Well Worth The OutlayI 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.
