Video Tool Review: Festool Kapex Miter-saw

Festool's new Kapex KS120 SCM delivers on features, precision

Length: 4:55
Produced By: John Ross

Festool is known for highly engineered, no-compromise power tools, and the hefty price tags that go with them. A Festool product is not an impulse buy, yet the Kapex 10-in. sliding compound-miter saw has plenty to pore over. In this video review, Fine Homebuilding editor Justin Fink shows you what makes the Kapex worth its asking price.

Editor's Note: Two points in the video desrve clarification. First, the Kapex can't cut 5 1/4-inch baseboard in the upright position. Second, you can lower the head of the saw by pulling the trigger, but the saw won't activate unless you pull the trigger and push the safety button at the same time.

Read "Better Saw, Bigger Price Tag" for Justin's complete review of this saw.
