Festool debuts new Kapex


Festool USA has unveiled the new KS 120 REB Kapex, a compact and lightweight compound sliding miter saw at only 47 pounds. With a locking head and two handles for center-of-gravity ergonomics, it can be easily transported from the workshop to the jobsite, according to the company.

The saw features adjustable dual-line lasers and a rail-forward design which is set wide apart to reduce head play and increase precision for smooth, exact cuts.

“Unlike any other sliding compound miter saw, the KS 120 is equipped with a proprietary cutting position that allows for a greater depth of cut — up to 6-5/8” molding in the nested position — without using a larger blade, rivaling the cuts of many 12” miter saws,” Rick Bush, Festool USA’s vice president of marketing, said in a statement.

“When combined with Festool’s renowned dust-extraction system, the KS 120 captures 91 percent of particulate from the worksite, making the work precise and efficient.”

Other features include Festool’s FastFix blade change system.

The KS 120 sells for $1,475.
