I'll check that out. Thanks Leon
I probably should have mentioned to be very careful at the Laguna site.....
My repeated visit to help sort why my Rikon was not doing what I thought it
should be doing resulted in me eventually placing an order for the LT16 HD
One thing that REALLY turned me off with Laguna was the very pushy
I have heard about that problem but never witnessed that at all personally.
I did however start the process off with "I want to see the saw before even
considering a purchase". Since you need to live near California to see the
saws and or wait for a WW show to come around they knew it would be a couple
of months before I purchased.
That said, I did not call until I was certain that I wanted to buy one and
when I did call I dealt with one salesman. He and I agreed on a price, IIRC
I got it for about $400 off reg pricing for everything I purchased. That
price would be lowered if the WW show offered a better deal. It did not.
So basically the conversations went on for 2 or 3 months. He never called
me unless he was returning my call.
I also considered MiniMax and they are headquartered in Austin TX about 3
hours away from where I live. I talked to them make an appointment to see
the saw of interest and they confirmed the appointment the day before.
The next day when I go there to look at their saw no one was aware I was
coming and the only saw they had to show me was missing the guides.... The
trip was a waste of time.
You might try taking a look here for some tips. I saw some of these videos
3-4 years ago but they are very informative with an expected bias towards
Laguna BSs. I am not trying to sell you on Laguna but these video's can be
very helpful in determining if you are always going to be chasing your tail
or not. ;~)
If you go here there are several BS videos. Scroll to the bottom to the
video titled The Perfect Cut ResawKing. It is about 20 minutes long but
interesting. Another video about the Laguna guides is also quite
interesting and helps you to understand what is going on with the guides
