      Thanks. Very cool video. Festool has some great ideas, but they are way too pricey, IMO.

          Very nice indeed and I love the fact that they took the extra steps to really 'introduce' the saw, and not just post a picture of it with some specs. The only spec that I see missing is the crosscut capacity. Looks limited when compaired to some of the other SCMS products on the market... guess I'd have to keep my RAS

          Festool seems to be always out there on the leading edge of innovation. They just don't introduce a competitive product, they seem to spend time analyzing the application and then invent something that meets most of the challenges and then some.

          I love the angle finder guage and the twin lasers. The latter appears to take away that haunting concern that "My laser doesn't hit the kerf!"

          But of course, one has to ask.... How many $000's are they going to ask for this baby?

            I'm scared to ask! It is really cool to see a tool stuffed with features that I have never thought of instead of shopping around to see which brand makes the one MISSING the least of the features you want. (I hope that made sense)

            Anyone wanna guess the price on this? I'd have to wager in the $1,200 to $1,500 range.

              Must.........have...............Kapex...*drool*

              anyone wanna donate to the "Sandy Needs a Festool Kapex KS 120" fund???? Please???? I'd be ever so thankful!

              My current Delta is in very poor shape and isn't a slider...and doesn't cut a reliable straight or 45 any more. I could REALLY get used to having a Festool in the shop. That green does kind of match orange, right?
              I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                I'll say they want 950.00 minimum.

                    Bosch and Makita make some very nice sliding compound miter saws that are more affordable. Maybe all of us forum regulars can pass the hat around and help you get one.

                    For what it's worth I might get one myself sometime after I figure just which one I really want.

                          $1300? In my opinion, it has NO features that justify that price. It is just a 10". For that much money, you can buy a top quality 12", a couple of great blades, a mobile stand and lots of other cool little doodads and still have enough left over to get the wife something nice to make up for spending $1300 without the proper consent.

                            $1300!?!?!?!?! American money?!?! Holy.....wow....yeah, not happenin here! It is nifty, I'll give em that. Unlike the Domino, however, it really doesn't do anything different the other guys do. The dual laser is cool...but lining up a MS has never been that problematic. I just pull the blade down and check where it's hitting the piece and cut. I know they'll be selling lots of these things, but there won't be one in this house. Even if I did crown molding for a living I wouldn't be able to justify that much money for a SCMS.

                              Pricey but a very nice feature set indeed. But I have to say, to put all that engineering thought into a 10" saw is somewhat of a brain fart IMHO. They could have just as easily made it a 12" for even greater capacity. The 50/60 miter range also seems odd design wise. The angle finder tool is a nice touch though if it works well.

                              As impressive as the specs are I'll be even more impressed when some real world performance reviews are published. If it can't cut accurately it ain't worth diddly squat.
