LAGUNA 18BX Bandsaw 220 Volts
RatingNice Saw, A couple issuesReceived the saw in great condition. It was packaged extremely well and the finish was flawless. Went together easily. The hex driver for assembly was included. Have a couple of issues and am waiting for some replacement parts from Laguna support that should solve them. The trunnion seemed to be improperly machined and warps the table when the clamps are tightened and the lower wheel has runout in 1 area that seems to cause it to vibrate. Can't wait to get those items fixed because it looks to be a wonderful saw.
RatingInitial Quality is excellentJust got the saw set up. It's a beast. No issues at all with the set up, other than what to do with a handle. Wasn't clear in the directions but saw it on the website photo (it goes in the wheel that raises and lowers the upper guide post).
The saw was well packaged, and I was able to screw some wheels into the pallet and wheel it down through the yard to my shop entrance. The cosmoline cleanup took all of 2 minutes with a rag and mineral spirits.
The fit and finish is great. The upper blade guide stays aligned even when changing the height. Major improvement over the old saw.
Only have a 3/8 inch blade but the test cuts where very smooth, even resawing 6 inches of maple with it. This was a major upgrade from my 14 inch Jet. Can't wait for the new blades to arrive and try some real work on the saw.
