Dr Festool Kapex

The DOC for the Kapex 120 is listed at 88mm for a standard cut, and although this is theoretically correct for a board the full 305mm wide, what if the board isn’t that wide?

Then the depth of cut (DOC 😉 ) jumps right up.  After a quick test, it cut through a 90×90 without even getting close to its capacity.  100×100 looks very possible, but I didn’t have a piece to hand to try (yet).

One way or another, 88mm is a significant underestimation when the board is less than the maximum 305mm wide.
