Hafele have launched a new sliding compound mitre saw from Festool a first for the hand tool manufacturer.
Kapex KS 120 is simple to use, compact and lightweight, precise and very versatile, say the company. Features include an ultra-fine inclination angle with adjustment to within 47º to either side and a rotary base that allows turning of the workpiece by 50º to the left and 60º to the right.
Festool’s own bevel and dual-line laser technology allow automatic interior and exterior angle adjustments removing the need for manual measurements or calculations that can lead to inaccuracy.
Kapex will cut solid timber or strips and cornices to 120mm vertically against the fence of the machine – in other words, in ‘against the wall’ positions – and also crown mouldings to a maximum width of 168mm.
All adjustments can be made quickly and easily at the front of the machine using the angle pre-selection knob and a quick release clamp. Bevel and dual-line laser adjustments are used in setting cutting angles and the positioning of the rotary base of the machine.
The blades can be changed and a transport safety device ensures that the blade is secured in its lowered position for transit.
