Hi guys,
I am a new user with the Kapex 120 and can't figure out how to transfer my angles from the miter angle gauge to the saw?

Thanks,
Frank

Place one of the metal edges against either fence, make sure the laser is on and line the laser up with the center dotted line on the gauge.

There are two lasers on a Kapex... make sure you line up the one that you want to cut to.

Should be obvious, but calibrate your lasers first.

"Should be"..... is right but never assume as you know what that means... [big grin]
