Festool to Preview Kapex Miter Saw at JLC Rhode Island

jlc_ri.jpgWe just got word that Festool is set to show off their new Kapex Sliding Compound Miter Saw at this year's JLC show. They're also going to be unveiling their newly modified MFT/3 Workbench, their OF 2200 Router and their new MFK 700 Modular Router. Still no word on release dates or pricing for any of these four tools.

So if you were looking for a reason to go to the JLC show, this is it. Well, maybe. Last year, the Festool table was an unapproachable mob scene with the news of their Domino Joiner, and that was just one tool. But there are a lot of other reasons to go to the show. Here's our coverage of last year's event.

The JLC show is held in Providence, RI this March 28th and 29th. Information on the event is here. You can buy tickets at the JLC site or it looks like Festool has a way to get them free here.
