Default Re: Kapex vs Makita LS1216L 12"?

I am in the process of upgrading to the Kapex as well. Like everything else Festool, you are buying into a well thought out system. The Kapex, in my opinion, is easier to use, the hold down is simple, dust collection superb(and there is no price for good health), and blade change is easy as pie. At the end of the day the entire saw is both easy to use and intuitive. Even if you knew nothing about the saw, all you need is a few minutes and the knowledge that anything green is adjustable.

For me, it is also personnel, I would rather spend money to reward innovation and companies will to roll out new products that might flop.
