Kapex on cutting cornice (crown)
« on: May 04, 2014, 07:07 AM »
Hey guys,
I've had the Kapex 120 for a few months now and thought I'd share my results on cutting cornice (crown) moulding. I've not purchased the crown stops as yet, so thanks to Dave Reinholds clip on utube for the sacrificial timber method.
Having been used to a 12 inch Dewalt, which produced good results, but not as good as I'd of liked, the anticipation was killing me to find out just what results could be achieved with the 10 inch Kapex.
Was I impressed? I really couldn't fault the cut, the joint was glued up and I couldn't pick fault with it. So YES very impressed  [big grin] I'm thinking the less blade wobble with a ten inch is a contributing factor here.
Dust collection was ok too, very good compared to my old Dewalt 708.
All in all all, I wished I'd of got one years ago! There's certainly no going back now.  [eek]
A few pics below, apologise that it had to be a B & Q kitchen I was working on    [scared]

Nice job

Had my kapex set since Xmas and haven't used it on a job yet lol. Every job I've done in the last 4 months hasn't needed a chop saw. Typical :) I've got a run of 10 kitchens coming up soon so it will get used then

Nothing worse than a new toy and not being able to play with it lol. Youll enjoy the experience :). I cant believe just how much of an improvement Festool has made to my job, the ts55 along with the Kapex, a whole new chapter. Where abouts in the uk are you? oops, just seen London :)
