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

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

04-12-2016 03:48 AM by JBrow | 5 comments »

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...

Lt 14 bx by Laguna

Lt 14 bx by Laguna

04-07-2016 10:58 AM by bob101 | 7 comments »

The day has come to upgrade , and after several months of research I decided to go with the Laguna Lt14BX bandsaw. First reason I went with this saw is motor size , this is a 2.5 hp motor on a 14” saw ! Second the fact that it can resaw 13” high boards, lastly even though it is manufactured overseas it is all Laguna ( ceramic guides, pyramid spine, very heavy steel and the fit and finish is impeccable . The other big draw for me was that Laguna uses a ceramic blade guide system i...

It sucks, in a good way.

It sucks, in a good way.

03-29-2016 02:09 AM by Matt | 9 comments »

So I purchased this from a local woodcraft @ $799 (on sale till the end of March) and it was forklift loaded in the bed of my truck. It was a fairly small pallet and my wife and I were able to unload it to the garage with little trouble. (She didn’t complain too much.) I assembled it in about an hour, casually taking my time and it was pretty easy. All the tools are included to assemble, however it’s faster and easier to use real sockets/wrenches. I was able to assemble it ...

Initial review of 14bx 220

Initial review of 14bx 220

03-09-2016 05:20 PM by djg | 5 comments »

i purchases the 14 box along with the articulating 220v halogen lamp, mobility kit and 3/4 resaw king blade. When delivered it was well packages. Probably the best I have eve seen. It was packed tightly inside a box in molded styrofoam. The box was in perfect shape and I had now double that it had travelled safely to my home. Initially the machine looked great. I have had the machine now for several weeks and have yet to use it. There have been many issues with setup mainly due to la...

So far I am very impressed

So far I am very impressed

01-05-2016 03:58 AM by rodg | 7 comments »

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

08-07-2015 08:39 PM by Desert Woodworker | 2 comments »

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.
