Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw

I’m getting a bit frustrated. The last week in January I ordered a Laguna 14/12 from my local Rockler store and was told it should arrive in less than a week. That didn’t happen and the blame was placed on the east coast snow storms. Well, maybe a delay of a couple of days make sense but not weeks. It’s snowing again today!

I spoke with the store manager and was essentially told that they don’t know where it is and when I’ll see it. They hope for delivery the week of March 2. but due to the west coast dock stoppage, nobody knows.

This wouldn’t be so bad except that based on the original Rockler delivery estimate, I sold my old band saw and am now without a band saw. I’m not sure there’s a solution but it makes me think that the next thing I’ll order will have to be in stock and I can pick it up that day.

Thanks for listening.

Cancel your order and buy it somewhere else. Woodcraft carries it.
As good as this saw is, everything else about Laguna stinks!

It appears that getting the saw is half the battle, around here only 1 store carries it and they are $500.00 more than a Rikon 10-325 and of course out of stock. Looks like the Rikon will be the winner as soon as he shop is finished! ( I will keep my old delta until the Rikon is up and running!) Good Luck!

I’m betting it’s late delivery has to do with Laguna it’s self,it’s notorious for late deliveries and other problems.

dock worker stoppage on the west coast,probably sitting in a container waiting to be off loaded.I’d cancel the order then call around for one in’s not like rockler is the Walmart priced dealer.
