Just yesterday, I had this same exact problem. Just a hobbyist woodworker here. I’ve owned the 1412 with the 2.5 HP motor for about 6 months with fairly light use (mostly ripping and resawing 4-6” wide boards no longer than 1-2 feet. Yesterday I was resawing an 8in wide African mahogany board that was 2.5 ft long. About 60% of the way into the cut it started making a weird pulsating sound and then PING! The blade popped, not on its weld and right at the top of the board. It was a clean break that looks exactly like yours.

It definitely sucks to lose a $150 blade prior to getting your money’s worth out of it. I’ve yet to call Laguna about it. Have you contacted their customer service at all?
