NEW Festool Kapex KS 120 REB Miter Saw
with Stand and Extensions

Festool Kapex Package Savings! Buy a Kapex KS 120 REB Miter Saw with Stand and Extensions and save $465!

Festool didn't invent the compound miter saw, yet with the creation of the Kapex KS 120 tool they certainly can take credit for injecting a huge dose of innovation to this genre of power tool. Now with the addition of the Kapex UG Mobile Miter Station you have the ultimate jobsite saw with the Kapex. The saw mounts to it quickly and without tools. It folds up with the saw installed and rolls easily from your truck to the jobsite and back. Of course, it also makes it easy to store the saw in the corner of your shop when you're not using it.

Pre-order now and SAVE $465!
