Compact, lightweight (21.5kg), but with a massive bite that's the Festool double bevel 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.

Kapex 120Im a finish carpenter ( built in’s, walk-in closets,staircases,trim and millwork you get the idea) and do a lot of stain grade work then this is a must and that’s not to say my ls1013l makita isn’t a great saw but the kapex is plain and simple as good as it gets as far as square cuts,glue edge ready and ease of use . And I would say the kapex , track saw and sanders are must haves all else you could do with or without festool . Someone mentioned in another post about kapex doesn’t have enough power or struggles through cuts and says festool boy fans must be only working in there garages obviously doesn’t do finish carpentry or anything of that nature and it’s not to say I haven’t cut lvl or microlam with kapex but why would u use a $1500 work of art for that’s why I have my beast dw780 dewalt for rough carpentry

Utter garbageHonestly do not be fooled or duped into buy any festool product especially this one. I work or large commercial construction job on price. Iv been using this mitre saw to cut mdf and hardwood along side the ctm26 ( also garbage ) the saw struggles with anything other than 15 mm mdf skirting and the extractor couldnt suck a feather up and you forced to buy expencive festool blades. There seems to be way to many festool fan boys promoting this brand I sometimes wonder if they even use the kit for money earning rather than knocking together a bit of furnature in the garage. Im sure this review will upset alot of the fan boys but i says it as i use it 0 our of 10 im afraid. Planer isnt bad but £15 for blades lol

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.
