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

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

1714 days ago 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 ...

Newest Partner in My Woodworking Escapade...

1619 days ago by grub32 | 5 comments »

Hi all…I recently added this to my new arsenal of woodworking machines. Begins with a post that I read either here or on another forum about the old days and using lay-a-way. I saw this saw go on sale at woodcraft for the 999 price and I was excited and sad at the same time. I knew that I needed to upgrade because I didn’t really have what I needed to do what I am now looking to do. So, I was in the local woodcraft having a chat with the owner and we started talking about the ban...

Craftsman 12" bandsaw

Craftsman 12" bandsaw

1068 days ago by mustang958 | 13 comments »

Hello fellow lumber jocks! Scored a Craftsman 12” bandsaw and mobile base this weekend off of CL. $50 for the saw and $10 for the base plus the owner still had the original manual. When I went to check it out it had been sitting in a basement unused for at least a year. It had the usual crud buildup on the table from sitting there but I could see that there were only a few spots of rust on the table itself. Plugged it in and it fired right up and made a nice straight cut with no bl...

G0514X2B 19" 3 HP Extreme-Series Bandsaw with Motor Brake

Here is my review of the grizzly G0514X2B 19” 3 HP Extreme-Series Bandsaw with Motor Brake. I ordered the saw about 3 monthes ago. Shipping – The saw arrived at my house about 4 or 5 buisiness days after ordering and was packed in a flimsy wooded crate but I did not see any problems tahat stemmed from this. The material of the crate was 1/2” X 3” pine. I did not see any damage after removing the crate si I guess it was fine. I did pay for the lift gate and the frie...

Wood Slicer Band saw Blade

Wood Slicer Band saw Blade

431 days ago by Tom Godfrey | 19 comments »

For months I have been thinking about buying this band saw blade and like everything else I read or hear I never know if its someone blowing smoke up my rear end or really do what they claim. In the case of the wood slicer blade all that is told or written is true or it is for me. I have a Rigid band saw with a six inch height and I have had it for years but never use it that much because I couldn’t get it to do what I wanted. After getting the wood slicer it’s almost like I ...

G0555LANV 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Anniversary Edition

G0555LANV 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Anniversary Edition

250 days ago by Shozzy | 20 comments »

Today I received my Grizzly G0555LANV 14” Deluxe Bandsaw – Anniversary Edition, it is my first “real Bandsaw” so I don’t have much to compare it to, this is my first tool review and i am writing this approx an hour after assembling the machine with very little use. That being said you can easily tell when a tool is quality by the appearance, the materials its made of and how it fits together. This bandsaw nailed all three of those, as soon as i opened the box i...

Laguna Tools 14/12 Bandsaw

Laguna Tools 14/12 Bandsaw

208 days ago by planesNchisels | 14 comments »

To star off I only gave it 5 stars because Lumberjocks wont let me go higher. I just got the Laguna Tools 14 12 Bandsaw and it took just shy of a month to get everything. The bandsaw was back ordered and I was told their blade machine was down. Talked with their customer service and had no issues with the status. They also told me because of were I live and the 0 degree highs we have been having they told me when I do get the saw untension the blade as they have had reports of the cold weathe...

1 Unlevel top and 3 warped fences

1 Unlevel top and 3 warped fences

1842 days ago by Rick | 22 comments »

It was between the Grizzly G0555X, G0513 and the Rikon Deluxe. I deliberated the total cost of ownership and quality of each saw. That meant upgrades, modifications, shipping and the number of years I was sure the saw would be useful to me. Many reviews I read on the grizzly’s said that they had vibration issues so they’d need new poly bands for the wheels and other slight modifications that actually add to the total price. I’ve never been ok with sub-par quality so I knew w...

I purchased the Rikon 14’ Ultimate Bandsaw during the Woodcraft 2 day sale this past weekend. So far i couldnt be happier with this purchase! Before i bought this saw all i had was a small Craftsman bench top BS from the 80’s so this is a night and day comparison…. although i have used several other BSs in the past.This review is just an overview of my experience… i agree with all the pros and stats on the other reviews so i wont recap them again! Purchase: Like i...
