kapex bevel grinding
« on: May 02, 2013, 06:07 AM »

I've posted recently about a bevel problem with a Kapex 120. Festool service fixed a broken bevel gear but the grinding when moving the bevel by hand remains. it appears to work fine when using the bevel adjuster.

Festool say that this is normal with older models- really?

It has ground a ridge above he bevel indicator and is just not nice to use - probably the experience I would expect from a generic manufacturer.

I am going to call the service manager directly as this Info was relayed. Is this a common experience with older Kapex?
