It will work if you don’t push it too hard. I measured it pulling only about 5 amps when it was idling, but if you are pushing hard on a large resaw (10+ inches), you’ll see amperage draw in the range of 20, so you won’t get by with a 15 amp circuit in that case. I think that if you take it easy, use a slow feed rate and don’t get too aggressive with resawing, you should be ok.

I apologize in advance if this has been covered…

I m looking at the Laguna 1412 band saw. I only have a 15amp circuit to run this saw. Everything that I have read indicates to me that this saw should work fine on this circuit. However, just thought I would reach out to the Lumberjocks who have experience running this saw on a 15amp circuit to hear thier opinions.




The saw has a NEMA 5-15 plug on it, therefore it is designed to run on a 15 amp circuit and the motor FLA is 14amps. You should see no issues. One note is it would not meet code if hardwired into a 15 amp circuit but that is a different kettle of fish.

Manual says it needs a 15A breaker (machine is rated at 14A FLA), so I don’t see a problem.

I have a 1412. I do run it on a 20 AMP circuit, but I run a bunch of other stuff at the same time. The only time it stresses enough to dim the light on it is when it first turns on and gets the wheels spinning.

I run mine on a 15 amp circuit with no issues
