Laguna has too many C S complaints for my taste – especially when there are so many other companies that continually get rave reviews – Lee Valley comes to mind even though they don’t sell what you are looking for, Sawstop, etc. For the tablesaw, it is hard to beat Grizzly price v. features, though you might see if you can find a similar offering from Shopfox – I understand they use the same manufacturer and just diff distribution chains. As to the JP – Jet ( which I have ) and Rikon both offer competing products you might want to check out. I like the Jet a lot, though it is more expensive than the Grizzly ( again they have the lock on dollars for quality ) and I see that Rikon has just come out with one, don’t know much about the features. If you are considering going to 10 inch, did you check the new Polar bear series J P – I haven’t seen it in person, but I think that it has an easier changeover because the fence stays on.
