I love my Kapex.
If i had to replace it tomorrow and replace it with another one.
Straight out the box it was already "tuned" to a high degree of accuracy. Mines gets a lot of use every day from precise trim work, trenching and general cutting.
It's in and out the van and workshop, upstairs, downstairs and used in clients homes.
Maintaining its accuracy is important and using it every day means that I have checked and "retuned" it using the supplemental guide including adjusting the lasers to how I prefer them.
The hold down clamp is superb, the stand and wings are excellent.
I love that no matter how I have marked my cut I just need to align the corresponding laser and make the cut.
The angle finder is nice to have right on the saw.
The dust extraction is superb and can be heightened further with many of the user experiences highlighted many times on these pages. It's also easily heightened by slowing the cuts to let the extraction rate pick up more chips.
Finally the stock blade is superb and the finer 80 tooth is excellent. I can't find much difference between them when cutting or on the finished edges.
In summary, I love my Kapex.
If i had to replace it tomorrow and replace it with another one.
