      Comments about Kapex KS 120 EB Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

      Accurate, very easy to use, did I mention accurate. If you are serious about your joinery, this miter saw is a must! Yes, compared to other miter saws it is expensive, but what price do you place on superb accuracy? The radial arm saw is gone!! Coupled with Festool 75 plunge saw, and a good table saw I am able to tackle any project. I primarily work with solid lumber, many different species for the one-of-a-kind pieces I design and build. Occasionally, I use sheet goods. Shame on me...I should have converted to Festool long before now!!

        Comments about Kapex KS 120 EB Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

        Make no doubt, this is a very good compound miter saw, if not the best.There is only one real issue: Price. Is it worth [$], which is 1.5 to 3 times more expensive than other saws, and it accessories are also expensive.Can I get the same high capabilities in a saw less expensive: YES.But for those who buy Festool, craftsmanship is more important than "value". And Festool does provide some of the best machines.Because the cost is so high, the importance of "value" was more heavily weighted in my rating. I can only give it average rating due to value, but 5 stars in terms of the product capabilities.

          Comments about Kapex KS 120 EB Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

          I have used about 10 different types &/or styles of miter saws in my career and have never seen anything that parallels the KAPEX in refined precision. Wide set guide rails, easy to read scale with micro adjustability, and extremely lightweight (I don't know if the other review who cited his 10" 27lb Makita was referring to miter saw or a SLCM, but this thing ALMOST feels too light). The laser indicator is not like your garden variety that is close to the cut line; it IS the cut line. Set and forget, it will not let you down, and you no longer have to do a bunch of small starter cuts to make sure you are tracking to your marks correctly. And dust collection? Forget about it. It doesn't catch everything but it captures far and away more dust than it's nearest competitor (and I cut a lot of ultralite trim which creates more fines than anything else I can think of).

          Bottom line, if you can get past the sticker shock you will not regret it.

            Comments about Kapex KS 120 EB Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

            WE have our hands in all kinds of woodoworking. We use this saw for furniture, cabinets exterior and interior trim and any other woodworking apps we se fit. This saw challenges some of the 12" saws on the market. The most accurate saw I have ever used. This my 5th mitre saw. I have owned 2 makitas, dewalt, hitachi. The options such as fine bevel adjustment, angle finder and etc. are state of the art. I don't prefer lasers, but these lasers are the finest. The calibration on the mitre gauge are similar to any other saw. The bevel adjustments for calibration are a bit cumbersome. There are just 2 bolts that loosen and tighten. This is not a problem for people that adjust with a square. For us, it can be a pain in the neck that there is not fine adjustment. Our saws are calibrated to within 3 thousandths. Other than that I can't say enough about this saw. It is by far the most accurate and user friendly saw I have ever seen and touched. Do yourself a favor and wax all surfaces with renaissance was or similar. It will help prevent pvc trim and pith from building up on the surfaces and also make moving material over the bed a breeze. I can go on and on about this saw. Do yourself, your customers and your wood a favor and buy one.

            This saw will not make you a better carpenter. But for those who already are good this will make your life easier.
