Kapex KS 120 Sliding Compound Miter Saw - 561287

Please call us at 763-425-9293 to place your order or ask any questions you might have.

The Festool Kapex miter saw comes with Festool’s high-quality 60-tooth carbide blade for use when cutting woods or soft plastics, an angle transfer device, a hold-down clamp for securing material, and a wrench for unit adjustments. Compact and lightweight at 21.5 kg (47 pounds), you can use the fine adjustment knob to control bevel angles in fractions of a degree. The bevel knob has three settings: positive detents at 0 and -45 degrees, free movement between -45 and +45 degrees, and free movement up to +/- 47 degrees. Bevels can be made to the left or right, and the bevel gauge appears on both sides of the saw.

The Kapex blade creates a thin kerf which reduces load on the motor and improves the cut quality. The blades are specially designed to reduce noise levels and dampen vibration. The large 30mm arbor hole reduces blade deflection. A special cutting position allows the Kapex to have a cutting capacity as large as 4-3/4-inches (120mm). The deck height of the Kapex matches the height of our systainer 1 storage containers. On the job site, you can use one or more systainers to support the material being cut. The difference in height between the MFT/3 and MFT/3-Kapex multifunction tables is also equal to the height of the deck providing optimal work flow and support. The Magnesium alloy base of the Kapex was designed to be extremely rigid and durable yet very lightweight. Rubber feet in each corner provide useful traction and fit into the grid hole pattern of any Festool multi-function table. Features Festools patented FastFix blade change system. Turning the FastFix knob locks the arbor, mechanically locks out the trigger, and allows the blade to be changed with a single hand. Dual-line lasers define the entire cut area

Dual Laser Design for Accurate Setups
The dual lasers clearly define the material which will be removed during the cut, and their design allows you to align cuts from the left right side of the Kapex KS 120. Three-axis adjustment controls make fine-tuning the lasers easy, and the lasers are electrically powered and require no batteries. Also, a convenient button allows them to be operated without turning on the saw.

Versatile Blade and Unique Cutting Positions
The Kapex KS 120 uses specially designed thin-kerf blades that reduce stress on the saw’s motor, reduce noise levels, and dampen vibration for cleaner cuts in a variety of applications.
It offers expanded cutting capacity by offering access to a “special cutting position” that utilizes the back portion of the blade more effectively. This means that by simply flipping a lever to put the saw in this position, you can cut 6-5/8-inch crown molding or cut vertical materials that measure up to 4-3/4-inches by 3/4-inch.

Compact and Lightweight for Portability
Featuring magnesium-alloy base, the Kapex KS 120 is rigid and durable yet it weighs just 47 pounds–extremely light for a 10-inch miter saw. This makes it easy to move from workshop to job site and back again. Two handle locations allow you to keep the saw’s center of gravity near your body while carrying it, reducing the strain on your back. Plus, the Kapex’s head locks down for transport, keeping the saw compact and preventing unexpected movement from throwing you off balance
