Comments about Laguna 14" Bandsaw, 3 HP Leeson Motor LT14 SUV :

Purchased as an addition to my Jet Bandsaw for extra resaw capacity. Received box with Motor with no label, supposedly it's a Leeson Motor, no way to tell. Fit and Finish Terrible. Nothing was aligned properly. Had to adjust table mount so Laguna Blade (No blade comes with bandsaw BTW) would hit lower table mount. Also Rear Ceramic guide wouldn't center on blade without removing lower mount for table. Table Mount Holder (to keep it level) had to be removed and ground down in order for lever to allow it to hold table after moving it forward. Seems like parts Motor and Table were just wrapped up with bandsaw from manufacturing, never setup on bandsaw, aligned then disassembled for shipping. The Table was out of alignment, the flywheels were already rusting, the upper and lower rear ceramic guide wouldn't center on the back of the blade. If you're in a hurry to start using a bandsaw don't buy this one. If I didn't need the resaw capacity I would have returned it the day after I received it.

Comments about Laguna 14" Bandsaw, 3 HP Leeson Motor LT14 SUV :

My saw arrived with numerous cosmetic flaws. Quality may have gone into the saw but it is not evident from the outside. From the runs in the paint job on the motor, numerous chips in the tables paint job, what looks like dents in the doors, and plastic parts that look like they have been chewed on. Manufacturer said if I was unhappy with the saw "I could always sell it on line and buy another".

Comments about Laguna 14" Bandsaw, 3 HP Leeson Motor LT14 SUV :

All this saw needs is someone with a means to transport and unload, run proper wiring and turn on the dust collector. I had to get creative, using a tractor bucket to unload it, pickup to shop. My only real con...the instructions to use a strap on the upper frame for lifting should have been on the outside of the box. It is heavy, but, that's a good thing since you can zip right through a lot of heavy stuff. I thought for a while the new 14" 120V might be a source of buyer's remorse, but, this thing rocks.

Comments about Laguna 14" Bandsaw, 3 HP Leeson Motor LT14 SUV :

This bandsaw is a beast! Cuts everything I've thrown at it with ease. Set-up wasn't nearly as difficult as some have reported and the guide must have been rewritten, because mine was straightforward and accurate. The only problem I ran into was with the tension gauge, but a call to Laguna & 5 minutes had it fixed. Apparently, this is common as they deliver the saw with all the tension off the spring and vibration lets the needle slip out of place. Just remove the screws from the small plate on the top of the saw and you can slip it back in place. My saw was almost dead-on out of the box and with minor tweaking it is accurate and has remained so for 8 months.

Comments about Laguna 14" Bandsaw, 3 HP Leeson Motor LT14 SUV :

After making the big investment. It arrived all nicely packaged, and assembled with no problems. I worked on the electric, ran new 10/2 line to my garage/shop and was excited to get it up and running. I goto turn it on and all I hear is a clicking. After further troubleshooting, I realize the motherboard has a problem. It needs replacing. I call Laguna, They were nice and seem accommodating. The gentlemen I spoke with promised 2 day shipment of the part. After 4 days and no delivery, I email. His response is "I placed the order with the warehouse, I have no answer." I like to believe him and he said I should receive the part today. Waiting!

Comments about Laguna 14" Bandsaw, 3 HP Leeson Motor LT14 SUV :

Great saw. Assembly was straight forward, I did need some help getting the bolts to line up when installing the motor and table. They were too heavy to lift by myself *and* insert the bolts. The table is lower than I prefer so I made a 5 inch lift and put the saw on that. This made the table the right height and did not impact any of the other controls, etc. The table height issue is the biggest reason I did not give this th efull 5 stars. I graduated from a 12 inch underpowered benchtop saw to this so, the differences are great. The saw cuts like a dream. Resawing Maple and Walnut has be great. The blade guides really shine when re-sawing. What a difference both in the accuracy of the cut and the depth of cut supported. Love the saw, well worth the cost.
