I posted the following on another thread regarding my Kapex saws.
I own 2 Kapex saws and love most of their features although I have had issues. The compound dial is hands down the most practical I have ever used. In my opinion, the accuracy is worth the extra cost combined with it's light weight. The plastic handle on the back that you lift up to disengage the compound lock however, has it's drawbacks. I have replaced 3 of the plastic hinges. They always seem to break at the most inconvenient times like there really is a good time. I keep a supply of no less than two on hand now for back up. They are cheap and relatively quick to put on. Now the bummer, I have had two motors go out. The first was on a brand new saw less than a month old, the second was three days ago on that saw's replacement which was just over a year old. I just boxed it up tonight to ship off. My original saw is still going strong except for brushes replaced at just over 3 years old. I purchased it in 2012. I am hesitant to buy another because of the motor issue. I routinely have 2 kapex's and one 12 inch Milwaukee scms set up on a trim job. My guys will always default to the kapex unless they are cutting large crown or tall base standing up. I have been doing high end finish work for nearly 25 years so I've got to use all the other colors of saws for reference.
