Talk about Quality.This saw has it

Review Summary

I love this saw. I did a lot of research before buying a replacement for my old Firestorm Black and Decker model. I checked of Sawstop, Craftman hybrid, Grizzly polar series,and Rigid. The cost was not a factor in my decision. I was other reviews I had read. I wanted accuracy. That's what I got. Only .0002 Mitre to blade and Mitre to fence. What a pleasure it is to cut perfect 90 and 45. Please look at this saw before buying any other. It is so accurate. What a quality unit.

New Saw

Review Summary

Let me start by saying that I only got this saw three days ago. I also had to buy it without looking at a demo model in a showroom as I have none near my home. And my last tablesaw was the Skil 10" Tablesaw w/Stand #3310. Which while worked for me for some time had reached a point that I could not get anything more from it. First I will speak of the Laguna sales department. I would give them 5* as well.
I chatted online with someone and when I asked him some questions that he was not sure about he asked if a sales rep could call me to help me. I agreed and had not even finished logging out of the chat before the phone rang. The salesmen was very pleasant and overly helpful(of coarse he was trying to make the sale). He answered every question I could throw at him (sometimes needing to go look at the saw itself). I was able to get it on sale as well 10% off and that covered most of the shipping. He also discounted the extra cost of the lift gate on the truck for delivery to my home. My total cost was right at $1350.00. Second lets talk of the delivery. I was so happy to be getting this upgrade that I cleaned out my garage/shop to make plenty room for it. I was a little bummed about the time it took to get to my house. Due to the fact that the salesmen said it should get to my house by the next Friday and it didn't make it till the Monday. While not a real big deal I would have loved to have the weekend to play on it. But when the truck got to my house I was so happy that the driver took the saw right into the garage/shop for me. He was very friendly and helpful. I would have to give delivery 4* overall due to the small delay. Third we get to the setup. The manual was very clear and straight forward with many pics. I had asked the sales rep about this as I had seen an older review saying otherwise and he told me how they had updated it. I will say as many others have that a second person is best for the setup. However I was worried about that as my friends would be at work that morning. But my wife was able to help me as I held the wings and she put in the bolts. The saw right out of the box was set pretty close. Better than my old saw could have gotten. But after zeroing in on a few adjustments I was very satisfied. So set up gets 5* as well. Forth I will speak of performance. I loved the ease with which everything moved. There is a type of Polyethylene on the sliding parts of the fence, so it moves with little effort. The wheels to rise and tilt the blade are smoother than any saw I ever touched, even in the stores. The insert that came with the saw was a zero clearance and was really nice however they cut through it to test the saw before shipping and there saw blade was not the greatest, as are most that come with the saw as it would seem. The dust port being 4" was a little hard for me as I use a 2" on a shop vac, but that is nothing to do with the saw. It does have a catch under the saw to keep dust to a minimum underneath. Being a larger saw I was not sure about the noise level, but it was much more quite than my old saw. Being heavy also cut down the vibration and yes it past the nickle test. I am sure things may change over time but as for now I will give performance 5*. Lastly let me speak of value. I was looking at getting a Saw Stop, But the time I would have to wait to save that much more money would be probably be another year for me. And with this one coming in under half of a Saw Stop helped change my mind. I needed a saw with 110v so it was sure to be around 1.75HP and while I did look at Grizzly and a few others I didn't like the fact that they come prewired 220v and needed to get an electrician to rewire it or void warranty by doing it myself. I would have to say this saw is either the top of the hybrid saws or the lower end of a true cabinet saws. But I am very happy to say I feel I got my moneys worth. I would surely suggest this saw to a friend. I will try to update this review after I have had a few months to work with it.
