Buying a band saw-This is what sold me in 2011- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-r5NUVBjL4o&ab_channel=woodcraftmarketing
Today this is what I would purchase- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-r5NUVBjL4o&ab_channel=woodcraftmarketing
For me the best advantage is being able to change the blade, without removing the heavy cast iron table.
Both are good saws but Laguna wins hands down. In my opinion.
Laguna uses ceramic vs Power- Matic uses Carter bearings- here is what Matthias Wandel has to say about band saw guides-

Best to those making a purchase-
