Kapex Blade cutting depth. can i cut more than 88mm?
« on: December 05, 2011, 07:47 PM »
Hi
I am wanting to buy the Kapex 120, (in New Zealand, where i live) all our standard stock timber (LUMBER) is 90-94mm, i read the specs on the machine that says it has a cutting depth of 88mm.

This 2mm undercut would be really annoying, so is there a work around eg a larger blade or something.

BTW we regularly cut timber that is 90x90 so my Hitachi C10FS cuts 100 which is all good buts it a bit old and does not have easy adjustment for bevel cuts hence time for an upgrade...

If it would only fit first time.

It will cut 120mm at the "tall" setting. This is designed to cut tall baseboard molding vertically.

Yes, you're basically plunging with the blade centre between you and the piece you're cutting. There's a glossy PDF referenced somewhere on here that shows you the entire procedure.
