Review

High Points: ↑ When raising or lowering the blade, the trunnion assembly moves smoothly up and down on cast-iron dovetailed ways.
↑ The blade-bevel handwheel is located on the left side of the cabinet, providing better access than those saws with right-side handwheels. ↑ Its rip fence was one of the easiest to adjust. Low Points: ↓ The rip-fence scale proved inaccurate, coming up 1/64" short every 12". (Laguna’s Torben Helshoj said he will investigate this and find a replacement scale for models affected.) ↓ Requires a not-included wrench to change to the riving knife. (Laguna is changing to a tool-free design on future models.) ↓ It does not come with a blade. ↓ Holes in the fence rails did not align with holes in the support legs; we had to drill to fit. More Points: → The miter gauge features width adjusters on the bar as well as a 15"-long fence with flip-stop, but you must use a not-included metric wrench to loosen and reposition the fence and flip-stop. (Helshoj said future models will use thumbscrews.)
