So the time has finally come: I need a real table saw. I have been putzing along with an old 50’s C-man contractor’s saw, but for safety and dust control I need to have an enclosed, and more accurate saw with a riving knife. I have considered the Grizzly hybrid, but the other day I was at my local Rockler and noticed a Laguna hybrid, the Fusion. The sale associate and I looked it over and talked about it for a bit and discovered that the trunnions are table mounted, something I would prefer and the grizzly and other similar smaller hybrid table saws lack. I also liked the addition of a 2” hose port connected to the blade housing and the more accurate look of the fence.
Edit: I meant to say that the trunnions are cabinet mounted, not table mounted. Sorry!
I haven’t been able to find any reviews of the saw, though. How new is it? How about Laguna in general? I noticed that it was made in Taiwan, but do they have decent quality control? I’ve heard they have had some customer service issues in the past, but seem to have addressed it recently. Any input is greatly appreciated.
