Yeah, I posted this somewhere else and people mentioned they ordered a 490x last june and am still waiting on one, so I guess thats out.

The Laguna has wheels for adjusting the height, the Powermatic has bars… the Laguna has 6 sets of shear and am not sure about the PM… i think the PM spins faster and has a better warranty.

In all honesty, the Powermatic should be the obvious choice. I still am considering the Laguna though just because it will match the BX18 bandsaw… silly reason… but a reason none the less.

I guess I will call some places to see if they actually have one of these in stock before ordering. Not really interested in waiting months.
