Pop you say:
“Having dealt with Luguna customer service & looking at the quality of machines my woodworking friends have from Luguna their equipment is on a level with General & Powermatic not Grizzly or Shop Fox (again Grizzly)”

I think I would agree with you for the most part except for Laguna’s Platinum series of machinery. Compare Laguna’s Platinum Series Tablesaw Left-tilt w/ T-square Fence to the Grizzly G0691. It’s hard to tell strictly from the pictures and specs but they look virtually identical to me. The fences in particular look exactly the same. Both machines are made in China. Price diff – $300 more for the Laguna.

The J/P combo machines aren’t quite as identical but the 12” machines from both companies are very similar especially the new G0634XP to the 12” Platinum. Price diff – $1050. Again both made in China.
