I purchased this Panel saw in November 09 because I have a Laguna HD band saw already. So based on buying previus tools of Laguna I thought they made all good machinery. Well, not so!. When putting this saw together and installing the extended table and tighting the allen set screws it begin to warp the main body of saw so I had to back off, weird uh? I could not understand what was going on with this. Then the main support arm had issues such as you slide the table back and forth you could f...

Laguna Tools LT 14 SUV Bandsaw Review - So very close!

Laguna Tools LT 14 SUV Bandsaw Review - So very close!

12-18-2009 05:23 PM by Tim Dorcas | 42 comments »

I first saw a Laguna Bandsaw in 2006 at the Calgary Woodworking Show. Man was it impressive! It just oozed quality. And when they cut a burl veneer slice, it looked like it barely needed sanding. What can I say – I was hooked (I still have that veneer slice). However at the time I didn’t have the money for it and went on to purchase something else. I always kept that demo in mind. After trying for three years to get my bandsaw to accurately cut wood and spending a mini fortune ...

My Nightmare with Laguan Tools

My Nightmare with Laguan Tools

05-19-2010 05:13 PM by Caleb James | 39 comments »

I recently purchased a 16” jointer planer combo and 18” 3000 Series Bandsaw from Laguna Tools. It has turned into my worst nightmare. I have spent $6,245.83 on this order. It arrived damaged and I properly noted it on the freight bill. I contacted laguna about the most obvious damage to the band saw. The upper flywheel had come apart in shipping. I rebuilt it and it seems to work fine now. My nightmare starts really with the jointer. In short this machine should edge join using the fence, ...

Received my 18 ” saw and a Driftmaster Fence about three weeks ago, and the experience has been trying.First I received my copy of the invoice on Saturday, before my saw was to be delivered on Tuesday.When reviewing the invoice I discovered Laguna had shipped me a 16HD instead of the 18 I had ordered.Couldn’t speak with the sales rep until Monday the day before scheduled delivery to advise him of the mistake, (this was after waiting weeks for delivery).The sales rep admitted it wa...

Poor quality and even worse costomer service

Poor quality and even worse costomer service

09-22-2010 06:34 PM by samiam | 25 comments »

Got this unit home and uncrated after it took 3 weeks to get from Laguna. When I ordered it the unit was on the floor ready to ship and when it was all said and done it hadn’t cleared customs yet. First thing that I noticed is that the plug on the end of the power cord was only rated for 15 amps. This unit has a 4hp motor so I thought that was underrated. It didn’t matter to me though I had already planned to cut the end off and put one on that matched my set-up with locking plugs. It ...

Laguna Professional Sliding Table

Laguna Professional Sliding Table

03-22-2011 06:55 AM by thamar | 20 comments »

As part of my shop upgrade, I decided to ditch my old “Mule” sliding table. I ordered the Laguna Professional Sliding Table. The website indicated that it would fit my Delta Unisaw and the person I talked to at Laguna said that some of their customers had mounted it on Unisaws. Once I received the sliding table, it just didn’t seem to me that it would fit my right tilt Unisaw. The right hand mounting bracket would have gotten in the way of the tilt wheel. The sliding...

The Horrible Stories About Laguna Are True

The Horrible Stories About Laguna Are True

10-22-2014 08:11 PM by Rockne | 18 comments »

I hate to sound like a complainer, so let me start out with something positive: the Minimax MM16 that I picked up when the Laguna purchase fell through is AWESOME. I’m fortunate to have some pretty nice machines, and the MM16 is a wonderful example of how things should be done. The only thing I would change about the mm16 is to give it a rack and pinion table . . . otherwise, color me very impressed. Now for the not-so-good: I ordered an LT14 SUV bandsaw from Rockler. Rockler...

Laguna Fusion Tablesaw

Laguna Fusion Tablesaw

07-20-2014 04:25 AM by cjg | 18 comments »

I was in need of new tablesaw as my old Delta contractors model was just wore out from the years of use over the past 60 years from my father and then myself. My shop space is roughly 500 sq. ft. but somewhat odd shaped. To fit the available space and maintain a safe work flow I was looking for as much saw as I could fit with the smallest footprint. I looked at new and used and all the brands. Read the reviews and finally selected the Luguna Fusion 10” Tablesaw with 1.75HP and 36”...

Laguna LT 18 3000

I purchased this saw in 01\10. Heavy brute to move into the shop. Set up was straight forward even if no manual was supplied. There is now a very good video on the Laguna website that provides some helpful setup tips. The factory settings proved to be right on with little or no adjustment.The saw runs quietly with no vibration. The start capacitor failed after about two hours. I received instant attention from the Laguna service people, but someone forgot to mail the part! Arrived today 05/1...

Laguna 16" Planer delivers

Laguna 16" Planer delivers

12-26-2012 10:38 PM by Deeppocket | 17 comments »

I purchased a Laguna 16” Planer last month and have a mostly positive review of the machine and the Company. As a disclaimer, I am retired, and enjoy woodworking as a hobby. My Planer experience is limited to my 13” DeWalt lunchbox Planer and now this industrial machine. I did not work in the industry. As a second disclaimer, Laguna did send me a T-Shirt after my purchase. Laguna’s 16” Planer is very similar to the Powermatic 15HH 15’ Planer, and probably cam...
