Brand new tools from Festool

A close-up look at the new mitre saw, sander, radio and batteries.

Festool KAPEX KS60 E-SET Mitre Saw

A mobile mitre saw

Festool has put the emphasis on mobility with their latest mitre saw, trimming down the weight of the KS60 to just 17.8kg. But just because it's lighter it doesn't mean you're compromised on functionality. You can still achieve the same exact levels of precision you have come to expect from Festool.

UJK Technology Dog Rail Clips

Long floor pieces to cut?

No problem, Festool has a system for everything. The KS60 has a clever function as the additional feet (complete with the SET version) raise the height of the saw to the level of a Systainer SYS 1, turning the SYS 1 into a handy support table.

Axminster Trade Clamps Forged Quick Lever Guide Rail Clamp

Excellent cutting precision

Cut where you want to. An LED light casts a shadow on the workpiece, showing the exact position of the cut. The twin column guide then accurately guides the blade for smooth cuts.

UJK Technology 20mm Cutter For Parf Guide System

Flexibility

The turntable can be rotated to 60° in either direction. Tilt to 47° to the left and 46° to the right.

Veritas Parf Dogs

Upstairs downstairs

A compact design and ergonomic carry handles combined with the lower weight make the KS60 much more portable. Useful features also include an integrated cord holder which helps to keep the cord tucked away; especially handy when being carried up flights of stairs.
