Lightweight Compact Footprint
Weighing only 47 lbs., the Kapex was made to be truly portable. The magnesium alloy base proves both rigid and durable. The tool’s rubber feet protect your work surface from harm. With these features, the Festool’s Kapex KS 120 Sliding Compound Miter Saw saves space and makes your day a little easier.
Special Cutting Position
Provide greater cutting capacity with the Kapex’s special cutting position. Festool’s innovative design uses the back portion of the blade allowing for improved cutting control. The Kapex can be locked into the special cutting position using the fever.
Bevel Lock Knob
Unlike other comparable miter saws, the Kapex is able to bevel to a 47-degree angle. The Bevel Lock Knob, located on the top of the Kapex, controls bevel positive detents and locks the bevel angle. The knob has three settings:
Positive detents at 0 and -45 degrees
Free movement between -45 and +45 degrees
+45 degrees with free movement up to +47 degrees
Let the Kapex take your project to a new level with Festool’s innovative Bevel Lock Knob.
Dust Extraction Port
Collect up to 91% of saw dust with the Kapex KS 120 Sliding Compound Miter Saw. The Kapex features a swiveling dust extraction port that accepts 27mm or 36mm hoses. Coupled with the Festool CT 22 or CT 33 Dust Extractor, enjoy the ease of a reduced cleanup time.
Easily align cuts with the Kapex’s dual lasers. Using the Kapex’s three axis adjustment control, the lasers clearly define what material will be removed during the cut. You also have the complete power to fine-tune the lasers. Save your batteries. The Kapex’s lasers are powered electronically and can be turned on without turning on the saw.
Use the Kapex’s special trenching capability. With the simple flip of a knob, you can cut trenches to go around pipes and obstacles. The depth of the trench can be adjusted with the turn of the knob. Once you’re done, flip the knob back up and you’re back to a normal miter saw.
FastFix Blade Changes
Festool’s patented FastFix Blade Change System makes changing your blade a breeze. To lock the trigger, simply turn the FastFix knob and lock the arbor. Then, you can change your blade with a single hand.
About the Kapex KS 120 Sliding Compound Miter Saw: Tune In on a Diamond Tool Professional
Diamond Tool’s Inside Salesperson, Lester, carries over two decades of experience in construction and sales. When asked about the Kapex KS 120 Sliding Compound Miter Saw, Lester applauds the Festool product. He says:
“The Festool Kapex KS 120 Sliding Compound Miter Saw is a top-of-the-line sliding compound micro saw. It’s a great tool. I currently have one and it works quite well. It’s made from reinforced fiberglass, which is a strong, sturdy material. There are a couple of key features on the Festool Miter Saw that are very interesting.
The Festool Miter Saw highlights a depth gauge on the back of the saw. With a simple flip of a switch, the depth gauge limits the intensity of the blade. So if you’re making certain cuts or need to adjust the depth of the blade, it can adjust itself easily.
It also has a 47-degree bevel. While other saws do a 45-degree bevel, this saw goes to 47. Usually, there’s a big knob on the back of an old-style bevel. It was a big wing nut, and you had to turn it. With this saw, you have a handle that’s micro-adjustable.
Another great feature is the saw has a dual laser on the left and right side of the blade. It also has a variable speed motor. So, if you’re cutting certain materials (wood, brick, etc.) you can speed up and slow down your blade to make the cut. There’s a guide on the side of the engine to let you know, based on what materials you’re cutting, what speed to cut it at.
The blade geometry on this is different than the standard 62-blade. The teeth are different sizes. It’s not a consistent tooth all the way around, it gives you a different pick, which provides you with a cleaner cut.
It has a dual trigger to provide extra safety. There’s a button on the side of the saw if you push, you can’t turn the blade. It locks up the blade. So, if you’re someplace where there are children or if you want to for general safety purposes, you can just lock it up.
To sum it all up, you’re getting a quality saw for an amazing price. You can’t beat that!”
