Summary: I was cautious buying this saw but got in on a 10% off sale and took the plunge. And I'm glad I did. Very accurate cut. Miters are perfect. Dust collection is better than my old De-walt, but not quite as good as I was expecting (I use a CT26 with a 50mm hose and then a short length of 36mm hose).
Summary: Hands down the best decision I've made to advance my woodworking career. Used to be a die-hard Dewalt fan, still am, but after I burned through my third miter saw I wanted to try something else. Its expensive, yes, but it also has a lot of features and the quality is unparalleled.
Summary: This kapex mitre box is by far best on market, i've had them all.....only concern is festool did not Design slide angle with a fine adjustment knob, it gets awkward when ur trying to dial in 1/2 degree.
It is simply the most accurate cutting saw in my shop. Over twenty years, the cost is reasonable.

Summary: I have had this saw for 5 years now and I still love it. My reason for buying this saw was that the most used large power tool in my shop was the miter saw. I had a decent 10 inch Milwaukee saw and it did OK but I had dust everywhere.
Summary: What can I say, if your willing to pay the price it better be the best saw out there. Well it is. Had it for a few weeks and already forgot about the price. It makes me work more efficiently and therefore makes me more money. The best saw out there if you want to pay the money.
