It's about 1600 with tax. You weren't far off.You're correct, for some reason I thought the Kapex was $1750. Still... That's $700 more than most of the really good miter saws. And I heard the dust collection isn't quite what Festool is generally known for on the Kapex. And the blades... unless this is someone's first miter saw that's a non-issue.
As far as the other issues... the laser on my 1013 is amazingly accurate, and the saw really isn't that heavy. Granted, I'm sure it's not as light as the Kapex. Not sure what the wheel adjust is.
But now that you brought the blades up, do you have to use a 30mm blade with the Kapex? Will a standard 5/8" arbor blade work on the saw? If not, that also means all my old blades are now worthless for anything but the table saw.
