Disappointed by this lathe

Disappointed by this lathe

09-28-2018 06:04 AM by cathyb | 38 comments »

One month ago my Laguna 18/36 lathe arrived and I was excited. My previous lathe was from General Tools. It did not have any bells or whistles, but it was a dependable workhorse and I wish I had that lathe now. These are the problems I have experience so far with the Laguna: 1. If dust or small chips get wedged in the banjo clamp handle it will not lock in place. Take the time to brush off the dust and get the dang thing to hold in position on the bed. Really? 2. Same problem w...

Laguna 14-12 Short & Sweet

Laguna 14-12 Short & Sweet

03-08-2018 09:25 PM by Andybb | 5 comments »

For some reason I’m not bright enough to figure out how to add a second episode on a blog so I’ll just post this separately. Well, finally got around to opening and assembling today. Can’t really say I had any issues. After watching and reading everything on this saw for months I knew what documented issues I had seen so I was on the lookout. I saw none of them. Here was the process.1. Assemble while following the Laguna videos. (Per a video I saw I loosened by 1/2 t...

Laguna 14|12 - Great Saw with fantastic customer service to back it up

Laguna 14|12 - Great Saw with fantastic customer service to back it up

01-20-2018 06:35 AM by BoardsByBullard | 16 comments »

Late in December I started to look into a few options for improving the shop, I was tossing ideas around getting a few more Festool toys and I realized I was quickly outgrowing my Craftsman 1hp 14” band saw. I was looking for a reasonably priced saw with more power and I saw that my local Rockler was not only running a special for 10% off Laguna products but that they also had the 14|12 in stock. I was strongly considering the 220v 14bx as a solid option but realized that the break was ...

Laguna - Great Product!

Laguna - Great Product!

We have had our Laguna bandsaw for about two years now. We use it mostly for resawing medium to small stock. We use the Resaw King carbide tip blade. All I can say is that this is a great saw and the Resaw King blade is remarkable!

Design features miss the mark

Design features miss the mark

Laguna C Flux 1.5 HP Dust Collector – 3 Stars – it provides good air flow and suction with 2 stage filtration. The rest of the design misses the mark. Earlier this spring, I ordered a Laguna C Flux, 1.5 HP dust collector ($1000) from Rockler with direct shipping from Laguna. After 2 weeks of waiting for a shipping confirmation I called Rockler and they said they would check on a delivery date. A week later and still no response so I called and e-mailed Laguna directly and sp...

Laguna fusion table saw

Laguna fusion table saw

01-28-2017 01:34 AM by Hermit | 20 comments »

I’ve had this saw about a month now. It’s a major step up for me being out of woodworking for 20 plus years. Having just built my shop, this is my first major tool purchase second to a dust collector. I’m basically starting all over again.I did a lot of research, read a lot of reviews etc as others have done. I chose this saw for several reasons. 1. Great reviews on multiple websites.2. Appears to be good enough for an almost retired hobbiest. 3. Dust collection port on the ...

Laguna customer service

Laguna customer service

I have had the Laguna 14/12 bandsaw for just over a year and have had no issues with it. Saturday I was cutting some wet wood into turning blanks and burned up the drive belt. Monday morning I called Alex at Laguna customer service to order a new on, expecting to pay for it. Alex asked if I had registered it and the date of purchase. I had and was 4 days over the 1 year warranty. To my surprise they covered the belt and shipping. That sure did make my day !

Ok, so maybe I didn’t buy the same saw. I was the previous owner of a 1.75hp 14/12. It was an awesome saw, but one day I went to rewire it to 220 and discovered that I had to rewire the whole saw (outlet and all) to 220. I was kinda eyeballing the new 14bx and that was it. I posted my saw on Craigslist and said, if it sells I upgrade, if not, I keep the 14/12. Well, it sold in about a week. So here I am today, unloading the new 2.5hp bx. I feel the same way about this saw as I did my...

A nice tool (also sold under the Baileigh Industrial brand)

A nice tool (also sold under the Baileigh Industrial brand)

07-30-2016 08:14 PM by whope | 4 comments »

I was using a sled with my planer and the results were okay, but with large stock, it was too un-wieldly and dangerous, so when I received a nice bonus at work this past spring, I purchased this jointer. I would have preferred the 12”, but the bonus wasn’t that nice. I had to run 220v to the garage so that was almost an extra grand. I also had 20amp 110v line put in as the garage only had one 15amp outlet so I had been tapping into the garage door opener outlets as well. ...

Laguna Compact Shaper 4 Speed 3HP, Model MSHAP4SPD-3-0130

Laguna Compact Shaper 4 Speed 3HP, Model MSHAP4SPD-3-0130

Requirements and Order. Woodworking is a hobby. A long time ago I considered a spindle shaper but committed to the router table. A little over a year ago, I decided to upgrade the router table. The found the upgrades I wanted to make would be costly and a lot of time to put into effect. That led me to researching spindle shapers. The Laguna Compact Shaper 4 Speed 3HP 1Ph (MSHAP4SPD-3-0130) was my choice. I ordered it from M&M Tool Parts. Receipt & Set Up. The shaper arrived...
