Festool 201180 Kapex cart extension
« on: April 19, 2018, 09:58 AM »
I'm considering purchasing the extensions and using them for another application. Can you provide some information about the extensions.

When connected to the cart what is the distance from the flat material surface to the floor?
How long is the leg?
What is the arrange of adjustment for the leg height?

Thanks

I can help you with this. These aren't measurements that we have on hand, but I can try to get them for you tomorrow. (I'm not in the office today.) Unless a helpful FOGGER wants to help out.  [big grin]

The distance from material surface to floor is 900mm.

The leg is also 900mm, or there about.

The leg is installed into a bracket on the underside that allows the leg to hinge. When extended, the leg splays outward from plumb. The bracket includes a screw with hand knob to adjust the amount of splay for the leg, thus varying the height for leveling.

The part number you gave looks to be for just the left extension. You can purchase either the left or right separately, but they are a little cheaper by the pair.

If you want to mount these extensions to something other than the Kapex or MFT table that doesn't include the V-groove, you may wish to look into the connection brackets that Multiblades offers.
