(To continue from my last post #1). I see from the comments of my first post many of you have run into this problem of getting the doors open when changing blades. So after much research and trying every thing here are the best methods I have come up with.

The first way, which many of you probably know from talking to a Laguna Rep is to tilt the table. That will allow you to get the bottom door past the fence so you can get it open to change your blades out.

The Second way, which is my favorite, is to slide the fence all the way over to the blade. Then loosen the wing nuts on the yellow blade guard under the table. With the wing nuts loosened the yellow blade guard will drop down and clear the fence so the lower door will open.

The Third way, which takes a little more time when you are setting the fence up is to install the fence with the fine adjustment handle on the oppisite end from the instructions (Right side of the fence). It takes a little more thought during the initial install since everything is fliped but my buddy did it this way. He has one of the smaller 14” machines which do not have the yellow blade guards underneath the table.

Anyway, hope this helps some of you with the blade changes. Please leave me some comments on what you think, or if you have come across any other ways.
