Bolt
« on: September 17, 2021, 08:24 PM »
Hello Festool fans,
I have a Kapex on a UG stand, and while putting it away, this bolt fell out.
It appears to have come from the right side at the non swinging side. Opposite of the handle that stores up rite when not in use.

I had looked all around the saw and put it back to its cutting position and nothing seems out of place,although a washer fell out on the 2nd time,indicating the area it came from.
The saw is a Reg. If that helps.
Thanks in advance ,
Charlie

Can’t seem to upload the picture , sorry,I’ll try later

Do you have the wings and if so, did you check them? I didn't go out and look at mine but based on the shape, my first guess would be that is the bolt that holds the spring and nut to tighten the wing to the kapex.

I don’t have the wings,yet.
I think it’s a extra bolt because the saw seems to be fine.
Thanks,

So ,
I found out where the bolt goes.
It is a part of the angle finder thingy.

Seems like I can’t post a picture of it, but it holds the green knob to the black plastic housing.
