Laguna Tools 14BX 1.75HP 110V Band Saw
RatingGreat SawPowerful and quiet. Easy to assemble just watch you tube. Truck driver brought into the garage where I unpacked it and rented an appliance dolly to get it into the basement work room. It run much better than the Cummins Industrial Machine I was using. I bought two led magnetic lights from Woodcrafters on sale that work well with the saw. Love it once I get more practice installing the blade.
RatingLaguna 14/12bx surpassed expectationsWent together without a hitch. Videos on YouTube were very helpful. Fit and finish are excellent. Cut several bridle joints that fit perfectly. Resawed 8" walnut without a problem. On top of everything else dust collection with my Festool ct26 is excellent. Very good choice for a small shop.
RatingAn Excellent BandsawI have really enjoyed this bandsaw so far. I have had the opportunity to do both large and small things with it and it works great! The single piece column and base keeps it held solid and the large fence and ceramic guides keep your blade running true. My only complaint is that the is "exactly" enough room to get your 115" blade on to the pulleys. Once its on, it rests comfortably on the rubber of the pulleys but getting it on was an ordeal which I required a second person to help. I have used it to cut veneer, split up lumber, and cut joinery!
