Kapex 120 - how to attach part and spring
« on: November 17, 2017, 03:41 PM »
There is plastic part that's in front of and partially inside the dust shroud that should extend and retract in relation to the position of the sawblade (it uses a spring). On my Kapex it doesn't work properly and I don't know how it is supposed to be positioned. Anyone here who can help me find out how?
Cheers, Bert Vanderveen

Mine did the same thing.  I needed to clean it and then it returned to normal operation.  Sigh, need to do it again now as it is occasionally sticking again.

Here is a thread on cleaning such.  http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-tool-problems/how-to-clean-kapex-blade-guard/

Hi Bert,

I had the similar problem and @GarryMartin sent me some pictures. I went back to that post and found them. Hopefully cut and paste will work.  Here goes...


Couple of photos below that might help.

Thanks, the pictures show what is wrong with mine — it lacks the screw and plastic washer that hold the part in place. Without these it kind of wants to launch itself under stress.

Now I need to figure out the part numbers and order them : )
