Kapex 120 main fence body issues
« on: November 04, 2019, 11:16 PM »
I have had my Kapex 120 for years now and have enjoyed it.one day I noticed my cuts were no longer squared. I used a quality straight edge and found the lower fence body to be off by 1/16” on each side of the C shaped opening. Has anyone had an issue like this? And what can I do to remedy this? If I need to order a new fence body I will. Thank you for any and all help.

Festool calls that part a yoke.

There are allan cap screws that hold the yoke to the base, you may be able to straighten it by loosening the screws and nudging it straight. Other choice is to remove it and lap it on fine sandpaper adhered to a a granite slab.
