Keep in mind that Laguna BS'S are built in at least 2 countries, I
suspect that the latest versions might be Aasian. The HD series are
Italian, and the non HD versions used to be build in Bulgaria IIRC. To
the best ofmy knowledge however the guides on all the saws are of the
10 point ceramic variety. If Minimax is there give them a good look too.
Well, my field trip was somewhat fruitful (scored a Forrest Dado King at 25%
off, at Highland Woodworking) and I took a good look at the LT14 and
LT14x14SUV at Woodcraft (and the latter at Rockler). There is enough
difference that I think I'll eventually go with the LT14x14SUV even though
it's about 75lbs heavier and $300 more.
I looked closely at the tensioning mechanism. It's certainly not filled with
grease but there was oil dripping off it. It certainly wasn't a dry
Aack! HD series? I don't see any "HD" designations on their site. Laguna is
stretching my (self-imposed) budget and weight limit.
Minimax doesn't make a 14" saw and their 16" is significantly more expensive
(can't find the price right now but it's > $3000, IIRC) and way too heavy
(530lbs). That's a non-starter.

When I got my planer the segmented head was packed with some god awful

thing with Topcote and I wouldn't have needed to spend 4 hours digging
out grease. They used a ton of it too, and probably would have been
cheaper and easier to use Topcote, or similar item. I nicked a finger
doing it as well... I shoulda sued the bastards...
I was using Boeshield in a generic sense to represent spray on dry
lubricants because I couldn't remember the name of the specific product
I've been using. Guess I should have gone out to the shop and looked
before posting :-).

Heavy coat instructions say to spray without wiping, which is obviously
what you are doing.
I've always followed the instructions for a light coating and wiped
after spraying. (insert joke, here) I may try a heavy coat on something
like my jointer just to try to duplicate your results.
