Re: Kapex KS60 unreliable depth stop

Have you had this saw for a while? Fancy posting a quick review?
Even though I was really impressed with this saw when they released it I would probably go for the kapex 120 for the extra capacity.

How does the guide bush fit in the makita rp0900 1/4" router? Is it just a push fit?

Do you have space for a panel saw? To cut 8x4 panels on the length you'll need a minimum 2.8m sliding table I think. I suppose it depends how often you will rip full sheets. If only once in a while you could probably live with setting up some roller stands or something and then you'd only need a sma...

Interestingly (up for debate) the tulipwood i just picked up for my latest kitchen is the good stuff. Heavier (denser) than some of the really pale/green coloured stuff with a darker greyish colour. Big flat straight boards as well. Must be a different saw mill.
