Buyer's remorse

Review Summary

I bought this expecting great things. The variable pulley was so poorly fitted that it ate up the belt. Laguna had no idea how I could get a replacement, they didn't stock it. The switch burned out and I got the same run around. All in all I have honed the inside of the moving part of the pulley so it would move, I was able to locate a Gates belt that was approximately the right size and taught myself to rebuild a non-rebuildable main switch.
Other than that it is almost as good as my 70 year old Craftsman drill press.
