I purchased a reworked KS 120 EB and am now somewhat physically limited in building a miter saw work station, so I have purchased a BORA 8000 to get my KS 120 EB UP and running.
Wondering if any Festool users have tried this device

Thanks

Sorry, If I had looked on the site I would have found this "Choosing a Kapex Stand and Extensions" already started and provides some help.  SSA 11/4/2019 1240 EST (1740 UTC)

I just assembled a portacube and am now attempting to install my kapex 120 on it.
Looks like portacube comes with 5/16 mounting bolts these are too big for the Kapex. Kapex mounting bolts are in the area of 1/4"

Also, the mounting holes are recessed in the Kapex frame and are designed to use a socket bolt that would screw into a threaded piece.

So I will need to sort out a hybrid mounting system to mount the Kapex on the Partacube

How did you do it?
