It is always fun for us “shop people” to get a new toy. I have been struggling with an old, 1 hp Craftsman band saw for the past 20 years or so. As my rocking chair business continues to grow, it is vital to have machinery that will help me produce the quality that is required.
As such, I am excited to say that I just set up in my shop a new Laguna 14” SUV 240v 3hp band saw. Pictures accompany this blog. It is a beautiful machine, over 50% heavier than my previous band saw, and cuts hardwoods like “butter”.
