I've just checked that model, and whilst it's far more 'finished' than I ever got, I'm afraid the scale is completely wrong. I appreciate that papap has done this model without an actual kapex for reference, and I'm not saying he hasn't done a good job getting the 'look' of it right, but the whole thing is oversize by between 10 and 20%, depending on which bit you measure.

I just wanted to warn people before anyone used it to plan anything firm.

papap - no offense meant. If you want, PM me with your e-mail address & I'll send you the model I did a few years ago (which is shown earlier in the thread) and you're welcome to use that to adjust your model for scale. I never did get any further than the base casting, and I doubt I ever will!

Awesome job finishing and posting!!

I am not to familiar with sketchup but I drew up Peter Parfitt new kapex stand and wanted to place this on top to figure out bolt hole locations and it didn't fir.

It's there a away to scale this down in sketchup?   If dien so would it be accurate?

jonny , no offense taken


 ...as jonny states
This model is currently a very convincing sketch.
which I  am happy to update

..as a user of Skecthup for many years this one of its charms- making very quick 3d representation of ideas that can be tested and evolve into  more accurate or even more convincing representations


 To all this was a best guess ( as stated in my post )  it does "look right" but  the only dimension that is  accurate is the  fence height of 900mm  EVERYTHING  else is a guess.

I had no measurements to use ..just images.
If anyone wants to PM measurements I will gladly  update the model with more accurate representations.
 for scaling the model.  The easiest way would be to scale the rectangle that forms from the centers of feet circles from underneath.

Skecthup tip
As for scale  use the scale tool (tools menu or CMD 9) with the shift and  option keys depressed  to scale (uniformly about center ) and type in the scale factor.
Viola all parts scaled.
Although in this case still inaccurate [embarassed]

I am glad this model is finally able to be of use. With a little assistance  I can make it usable for future shop layouts not just pretty pictures.
Although I wish it was that easy to make actually people more useful.

cheers

updated the model to a more accurate scale. 
Still a WIP for use as a template for dimensional planning.

Uploaded a mobile configuration of the Kapex model to the Sketchup 3D Warehouse here
No real changes other than updating the generic saw blade to a Festool 500647
