Festool Kapex Sliding Miter Saw
Free-thinking Festool sets out to build new tools independent of the conventions of particular product categories, and the Kapex miter saw is no exception. This 260mm-blade (10 1/4-inch) saw has innovative features that stood out in our test of sliders last year, holding its own in the field of larger 12-inch saws. From the best up-front bevel-angle adjustment to its superior dust collection to its favored dual-line lasers, the Kapex embodies a premium-quality saw. And totally unique features-such as its locking chop-cutting position, variable-speed motor, and angle-bisecting protractor-really set it apart from the rest. Festool KS120EB Kapex: $1,300. 888-337-8600.
