Thanks. They sure ain't cheap but I realized that one of the things I carried onsite nearly daily was my drill, bits, and fasteners, all in separate cases. This setup allows me to carry all of that in one hand leaving the other hand free to carry more tools.

I used the clamp to hold a wood stop so I could cut 200 small pieces. Not wanting to turn the Kapex on every cut, I'd tell you I used a Quick Grip camp to lock the tripper on, but...............

It makes perfect sense. I snagged a 12drawer during a dealer closing and it holds all my finish nails. Like the idea of a taller bottom drawer.

I haven't used it every cut but I've used it a whole lot. Do it a few times and then it's mindless and it's fast. I'm not really taking any extra time to cut by using it but the piece won't move around at all for sure.

I use the one on my bosch a lot. I'm sure it I had one as effective as the kapex seems to be I would use it a lot more.

Anyone use thier Kapex for framing blocks and what not? If you do this blade is perfect for wet PT. I had Leitz bore it to fit the Kapex. It's a 40 Freud Fusion.

What is that black piece to the right of the saw? Is that part of your stand?

Well, just joined the club. Placed an order with Bob Marino for a ts55 and ct midi kit. I thought my tool habit was already too expensive....if this thing is even half of what its made out to be, this might become a problem..... Lol

That is exactly what I first saw too!

I am very impressed with my TS55, might look at the dust collection and seriously looking at the Kapex.

Cali, did I see that you have yours mounted on the Bosch gravity rise? I have my Dewalt on it and love the stand, the wings are ok but love the stand.

Do you notice your bevel moves from 0 after moving it around? Using the same stand and I am trying to figure best way to store saw for transport.

Yes, if you'll notice in the pic I adjust the saw in the bevel position to transport.
