Hello folks,

Anyone have a Laguna TSS tablesaw?. I am seriously considering one. I have tried other sliders like Felder and while they are top notch they are simply out of my price range. Any imput would be helpful. I understand the customer service issues but looking for input on the saw itself.

Thanks,
Scott

I really can’t respond to Laguna’s table saw. But I recenlty bought their driftmaster fence for my bandsaw. I purchased the fence from AMAZON. When it arrived the box was shredded the fence has large scratches and dings and most of the mounting hardware was missing. When I contacted AMAZON I really didn’t get any help. I then called Laguana and spoke with one of their techs. They guys I spoke with a Laguana couldn’t be more helpful. He sent me a replacement for the fence and the hardware. Others may have had problems with Laguana’ customer service, but they were certainly great to me. pkennedy

I just joined woodjocks. I have a TSS and have had for 3 years. Would be happy to give you ups and downs about it if you’re still in the market

I own one and it is a one of the best machines in my shop. Well built and well worth the money. When you add the accessories you can actually turn this machine into a fully functional panel saw. What questions do you have on it?

Since you had it for a while would you buy it again? Do you miss not having a cabinet type saw? How easy is it to reset the cross cut fence to 90 degrees. Is the table smooth? Is it akward to lean over the sliding table for ripping cuts?

Probably think of a few more.
Thanks,
Scott
