So far I am very impressed

I will have to come back after I get some time using this band saw so please consider this as a first impression review. I took receipt of the saw this afternoon so I have only performed the un-boxing/assembly and did a few test cuts in maple. The packaging was top notch on-par with the packaging used by SawStop. Assembly was quick and easy with help from my 10 year old daughter, all said and done took maybe 2 hours to assemble with her help and us taking our time so I could explain things...

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

11-01-2015 02:16 AM by TheDane | 7 comments »

This is an initial (unboxing & assembly) review … I’ll update after the machine has been in service for a few months. The machine arrived at the local Woodcraft store on a pallet, and weighed in at 106 KG (a little over 233 pounds). We got the shipping container ( 45” x 26” x 38”) to fit into the cargo bay of my Jeep Liberty with a little finagling (and a few well-chosen words). I have a pneumatic table and a very patient wife that were invaluable in unloading it in my g...

Couldn't be happier

Couldn't be happier

08-27-2015 09:58 PM by David | 13 comments »

Since I was younger, I have always had the woodworking bug. Well, for my 41st birthday, my Wife decided to buy me a saw so I could learn the craft/hobby. Initially, we were looking at the portable saws like in HomeDept, Lowes, etc. I do not have a dedicated shop, as we park our cars in the garage, so portability was a concern and consequently, I was looking for as much saw as I could fit with the smallest footprint and one that I could afford. I looked at new, used, Craigslist…all o...

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

I am a fan of Laguna tools. I called my salesman and it was delivered 7days later. Everything was clean, well painted, and it assembled OK. I was going to convert a HF 2hp, add a Dust Deputy and have to rig a system. Cost of Laguna shipped without the filter $825 vs. build your own $500 plus my time. This has been a good decision for me and I highly recommend this unit for a shop that doesn’t have an extra 220 service. This unit runs on a 20 amp 110service. The motor is made in Taiwan ...

Laguna 14/12 vibration issues fixed

Laguna 14/12 vibration issues fixed

03-17-2015 03:48 PM by greatview | 17 comments »

I recently set up a new 14/12 bandsaw and found no vibration issues as have been previously reported on this forum. It looks as if Laguna solved whatever problems they might have had. I did make a couple of modifications as described by Randy Woodworker on his youtube videos including a zero clearance insert and replacing the metal dust shield with one of wood held in place by magnets. Overall, a great saw.

Laguna 2HP review

Laguna 2HP review

02-09-2015 04:20 PM by MrSammy | 29 comments »

My wife purchased the 2 HP Laguna Dust Collector for me. I was always hesitant on buying Laguna because of their horrible customer service reviews. I currently have a 14/12 band saw and have had zero problems. I will explain the problems I experienced and explain why I will never purchase a Laguna product ever again. My wife bought me the 2 HP Dust Collector because I do woodworking to cope with my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She copes with my drinking from doing and experiencing e...

Finally a Serious Bandsaw

Finally a Serious Bandsaw

01-14-2015 03:48 AM by chem | 26 comments »

The band saw is an amazing tool, or so I am told. I must admit that with my Craftsman 12 inch saw (similar if not the same as the Rikon with 8 inch resaw) that I was not always feeling the thrill. Part of this may have been the fact that I tended to use a compromise blade to avoid changing between resawing and scrolling optimization. I don’t have the patience for band saw blade changes and the subsequent tuning. The path of least resistance from my perspective was to get a saw optimized for ...

Garage Sale Quality

Garage Sale Quality

11-18-2014 06:39 PM by Virgil | 32 comments »

Laguna has left a first and lasting impression on me. The saw I received came with numerous cosmetic flaws. From the runs in the paint on the motor, to what looks like dents in the edge of the doors, various chips in the paint on the table, plastic parts that look like they have been chewed on, to holes needing to be drilled out for assembly. This saw looks like something I would have purchased at a garage sale. I am passionate about wood working and just as passionate about my wood working t...
