kapex guard fix
« on: March 05, 2009, 05:11 PM »
I've seen a post about the saw guard sticking open on the kapex , my saw does the same
its a easy fix ,  when the saw guard is closed look up between the guard and the lasers , on the right hand side off the guard stop just cut a small bevel on the guard
and it stops it catching on the arm that retracts the guard , it doesn't effect the stop, and it has never happened again
I've put a ring round it in the picture

Thanks for sharing. I haven't encountered the problem myself (yet...), but if I do, I now know how to fix it.
