I have a Laguna NLX31 combination machine with table saw, jointer/planer, and shaper.The table saw motor works great but the jointer and shaper motors are running slowly maybe something like half speed. I have had the motor and capacitors checked, the 40uF and a 50uF capacitors were within uF tolerance, but I have since replaced with with new. That did not fix the problem. The table saw starts even faster now, but the same problem exists with the other two motors. I unhooked the belts...
And by popular demand here is a quick tour of my new workshop just after the move! Ha!
I was down in Laguna and took some pictures of this reputed 38,000 lb behemoth. My guess is the wheel diameter is 66”-72”. Curiously the height capacity betweenthe guide blocks is only about 14”, so the saw must have been used in a differentsetup for initial slabbing of logs, or a different saw was used for the rough workwith the big trees and this saw was used for cutting dimensioned beams. The upper guide is not adjustable, but it does appear to be removable so conc...
I recently purchased a 16” jointer planer combo and 18” 3000 Series Bandsaw from Laguna Tools. It has turned into my worst nightmare. I have spent $6,245.83 on this order. It arrived damaged and I properly noted it on the freight bill. I contacted laguna about the most obvious damage to the band saw. The upper flywheel had come apart in shipping. I rebuilt it and it seems to work fine now. My nightmare starts really with the jointer. In short this machine should edge join using...

So after much research and trying every thing here are the best methods I have come up with. The first way, which many of you probably know from talking to a Laguna Rep is to tilt the table. That will allow you to get the bottom door past the fence so you can get it open to change your blades out. The Second way, which is my ...
Changing Blades with a Laguna Tools Drift Master Fence #1: Changing Blades with a Laguna Tools Drift Master Fence
After many years of seeing this fence on the Lagunatools website I finally bit the bullet and bought it. When it first came out I spoke with one of the sales guys about it and I was going to have to drill my table to mount it so I held off. About a year later they finally came out with the universal mounting brackets for the fence so I could bolt it right on to my machine and that is exactly what I did. After cutting down alot of curly maple with my resaw king blade it became dull and it w...
