Kapex Sliding Compound Miter Saw

The Festool Kapex Sliding Compound Miter Saw: Innovation. Compounded.

The Kapex KS 120 was developed with one goal in mind: to be the best sliding compound miter saw, period. The KS 120 is the first miter saw with variable speed, enabling the user to match the speed of the blade with the requirements of the material for perfect cuts, every time. Finally, a sliding compound miter saw that combines a large cutting capacity with a compact and lightweight design. The innovative twin-column forward rail design gives this saw greater precision in an extremely small footprint. And Festool's meticulous engineers designed the saw to capture up to 91% of the saw dust when used with a CT dust extractor (when using a 36 mm hose).

There are many other good reasons to make the Kapex KS 120 your next sliding compound miter saw: ergonomic center-position handle, large scales, quick release fences, and FastFix blade changes, to name a few. Eliminate rework and waste by making precise, reliable cuts the first time.

Dual Lasers

  • Easily align cuts from the left or right side of the Kapex Miter Saw
  • Clearly define the material which will be removed during the cut
  • Complete control: Three-axis adjustment controls to fine-tune the lasers
  • Conveniently placed button can be used to turn on the laser without powering on the saw
  • Electrically powered: No batteries required
  • No need to take the blade down to the material anymore in order to see where you’re going to be cutting

Bevel Lock Knob

  • Conveniently located on the top of the Kapex Miter Saw
  • Controls bevel positive detents and locks bevel angle
  • Counter spring balanced head allows you to position the bevel and let go of the saw without the head moving
  • Use fine adjustment knob to control bevel angles in fractions of a degree
  • Three settings: positive detents at 0 and -45 degrees, free movement between -45 and +45 degrees and free movement up to ±47 degree
  • Bevels can be made to the left or right and the bevel gauge appears on both sides of the saw

Special Cutting Position

  • Incorporates special cutting position that provides greater than normal cutting capacity by utilizing the back portion of the blade more effectively
  • Easily locked into position with the flip of a lever

MiterFast Angle Transfer Device

  • Complex angle calculations are eliminated by using the onboard angle transfer device
  • Simply copy inside and outside corners with the angle transfer device onto the miter table by aligning the angle transfer device line with your laser lines from both miter sides

Ergonomic Handle Position

Cord and Tool Storage

  • Onboard storage for power cord and arbor tool
  • Makes arbor tool always handy for quick blade change with the FastFix system

Trenching Capabilities

  • With the flip of a knob cut trenches to create lap joints or go around obstacles
  • Flip back and you are back to normal position in seconds. Turning knob will adjust depth

Dust Extraction Port

  • Swiveling Dust Extraction Port allows for easy positioning
  • Combined with CT dust extractors, capable of collecting up to 91% of saw dust

Extreme Applications and Portability

Your Kapex is ready for precision cutting of crown, chair rail and other decorative molding along with interior trim, door and window casing. The Kapex also excels at general cross-cutting for all trim carpentry applications as well as processing expensive materials where tearout, burning and kerf marks are unacceptable. Above all, enjoy the easy portability, quick set-up, and easy breakdown of the Kapex sliding compound miter saw.
